A great tooth replacement option for patients with missing teeth.
Dental implants are a fascinating type of dental technology that allows for severely damaged, decayed, or missing teeth to be replaced with fake teeth that are strong, durable, and look perfectly natural. Many patients can benefit from dental implants and implant-supported restorations, such as implant-supported dental crowns, dental bridges, and permanent dentures.

Dental Implants Benefits
Reasons To Invest In Dental Implants
Dental implants help to restore the functionality that patients lose when they have missing teeth. While removable dentures are a great option for some, they do not provide a permanent solution. This is where dental implants come in — they’re secured to the jawbone with titanium posts, which stimulate bone regrowth and allow the patient to bite, chew, and speak normally. Plus, dental implants closely resemble natural teeth, so no one has to know that you’ve had dental implant surgery. Here are some of the main benefits of dental implants:
Since every one of our patients is different, our oral health program must be individually tailored to address each patient’s specific dental needs and circumstances. There is a set protocol in place for the assessment of oral health for each new patient that comes into our family dental clinic. We evaluate, amongst other things, the health of the gums (sensitivity, bleeding, depth of tooth pockets, inflammation, etc.), the state of existing restorations, and the presence of any new tooth decay. Our findings determine the appropriate dental treatment and preventative follow-up care, whether that be a cavity filling, additional dental x-rays, or a restorative dentistry treatment like a root canal or dental implants.
Unlike other, more conventional tooth restorations, implant-supported dental restorations eliminate the need to manipulate any surrounding healthy teeth or involve them in the treatment in any way. With dental implants, only the affected area is treated, adding stability and functionality without fixing them to the surrounding teeth.
By replacing missing teeth and acting as natural tooth roots, dental implants significantly reduce the attrition of the jaw bone which, in turn, can lead to the recession and increased fragility of the jaw. Instead, the titanium posts screw into the underlying jawbone, stimulating regrowth for a strong, functional smile.
Implant-supported restorations are permanent (fixed), and as such, they are more stable and secure, providing greater and more natural functionality and comfort. You won’t get the same amount of functionality with any other dental restoration, such as a dental bridge or dentures.
