Are Dental Implants Right for You?

What is a dental implant, and how does it work?

Modern dental implants have been used to replace teeth for over 30 years. Implants provide a means of replacing lost or damaged teeth without resorting to dentures, partials, or bridgework. Generally, dental implants are posts made of a strong, biocompatible material which are placed into the jawbone to take the place of your missing tooth root. After a short healing period, the bone has attached to the implant (a process known as osseointegration), and a replacement tooth is secured to the top of the implant.


What are the benefits of dental implants?


Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth; no one will ever know that you have replacement teeth. When teeth are missing, the surrounding bone begins to shrink and eventually your jawbone will recede. Dental implants can prevent deterioration of the jawbone caused by loss of teeth, and your face will retain its natural shape.

Saving Existing Teeth

Dental implants do not sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a traditional bridge. More of your own teeth are left untouched, an important long-term benefit to your oral health.


Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. The permanence and the strength of the implant and attachment can alleviate many of the problems that individuals may have experienced with dentures, particularly slipping and loosening.
