Implants

An implant has several benefits. Like the roots of natural teeth, it stimulates the jawbone when you chew. This preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy. An implant is strong, comfortable, and secure. When the restoration is in place, the implant looks and feels much like natural teeth.

An implant can support a variety of restorations, such as a single crown, multi-unit bridges, and full-arch dentures.

The implant stops the bone loss that occurs when a tooth is lost, and it prevents the surrounding teeth from shifting into the space. Unlike replacing the tooth with a traditional bridge, there is no need to reduce the size of neighboring teeth. The crown, bridge or denture with an implant also looks and feels like your natural teeth when you chew or talk, and can be brushed and flossed.

With proper homecare and regular checkups, your implant can be a long-term solution for a natural-looking smile.

Some restorations, like a single crown and most bridges, are not removable. Others, like many full-arch dentures, can be removed for sleeping and cleaning. Depending on your specific replacement needs, your dentist, prosthodontist, periodontist, or oral surgeon will discuss with you what options are best for your situation to restore your beautiful smile.
