Why Dental Implants?

Tooth Loss causes Bone Loss

A natural tooth does a lot more than help you cut and grind food and make for nice smiles. It also plays an important role under the gumline where you can't see it.

Natural teeth need the support of the bone in your jaw to survive. When you lose a tooth, the bone begins to shrink and weaken. For some people, the amount of bone lost is not too serious -there's still enough bone to provide a good solid foundation for a full or partial denture.

Unfortunately for some patients, shrinking bone can trigger a number of problems. It can cause dentures to fit loosely, making it hard to bite and chew. Dentures rub and underlying gum becomes sore and painful. Speech may be impaired and along with it, self Image.

Dental implants are the closest cousin to natural teeth. They are permanent false teeth anchored right into your jawbone. They're more stable than dentures, and you'll be able to eat almost anything with ease and comfort. Many patients find implants give them a more positive self-image and more confidence.

Dental Implants can be employed to replace one, several, or all missing teeth.
