Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants have enhanced the quality of life for millions of people throughout the world, improving overall health and well being and restoring the confidence that comes from a natural smile and appearance.  This “state-of-the-art” dental technology makes it possible to restore the mouth as closely as possible to its natural state and eliminate the need to cut down adjacent teeth for bridgework.

Dental implants are basically substitute tooth roots, used to replace natural tooth roots in areas of the mouth where teeth are missing.

The reason it is so important to replace the tooth root and not just the visible part of the tooth (crown) is that natural tooth roots, which are embedded in the bone, preserve the bone. When teeth are missing, the bone that previously supported those teeth melts away, or deteriorates. This process is called bone resorption.

However, the bone can be preserved by replacing missing tooth roots with dental implants. Since the bone actually forms a strong bond to the implants, they can serve virtually the same functions as natural tooth roots: a strong foundation for biting and chewing, and stimulation for the bone to preserve facial structures.
