Whether you choose individual dental implants or you replace an arch using overdentures, dental implants are the ideal way to restore your smile. Dental implants are the safe, attractive and low-maintenance way to get the smile you’ve been dreaming about.
Dental implants are surgically-placed individual prosthetic replacements for missing teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants are not removable. Rather, dental implants are permanent replacements that look and feel just like your natural teeth.
The Magic of Osseointegration
Unlike traditional tooth replacement options, dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Known as the fixture, the implant itself is made of titanium, a highly durable metal that is also biocompatible. Ultimately, this allows the dental implant to form a remarkably secure bond with your jawbone thanks to a process known as osseointegration.
Ultimately, this naturally-occurring process allows the implant to become a part of the jaw bone and creates a strong foundation for the rest of the dental implant.
The Many Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants are designed to blend in perfectly with your smile. You take care of them by brushing and flossing, just like you do with your natural teeth. Additional benefits of dental implants include:
- Prevent jawbone deterioration
- Help prevent gum disease
- Preserve the overall health of your smile
- Low maintenance, low-hassle
- Maintain the healthy shape of your face
- Designed to last a lifetime if given the proper care
Overdentures Can Keep Your Smile Stable
Rather than replacing each tooth with its own dental implant, overdentures use dental implants to secure an arch of a denture to your jaw. That means no more sliding around throughout the day as you eat and speak.
The denture you currently wear can be modified to sit comfortably over the implants, or we can create a new, natural-looking denture for you.
