What Are Dental Implants?

After you have lost a tooth, the gums, teeth, and jaw bone around that tooth start to deteriorate and lose their density. That’s where dental implants come in. Dental implants are essentially titanium posts that provide a solution for replacing your teeth, with a strong foundation to prevent further loss. They preserve the gum, bone, and tooth density that you have now.

Dental implants fuse to your jawbone, forming an even stronger bond than your former teeth had with their roots in your jaw before. While bridges and dentures are solutions to your lost teeth, they don’t solve the underlying problem of gum, tooth and bone loss. Dental implants are the complete and total solution to tooth loss, and the gum and bone loss that come with it.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are the best and complete solution to missing teeth, and are seen in the dental industry as the best option for replacing one or several missing teeth. 

Dental Implants are better than the older, alternative treatments for tooth loss, such as bridges and dentures, for a variety of reasons. Dentures and bridges don’t do anything to solve the bone, tooth, and gum loss problem. Fixed bridges even require further grinding down of the adjacent teeth so that the bridges can fit. This leads to the eventual issue of the surrounding teeth starting to deteriorate, and eventually fall out. A single lost tooth can start a domino effect unless a strong foundation is installed along with the cosmetic replacement teeth.

Removable dentures, in addition to doing nothing about the tooth and bone loss, are a temporary fix to bone loss. Dentures slip, require messy creams, and prevent you from eating the foods you love. They truly feel like “false teeth”. 

Dental implants look just like your old teeth, and you will learn to love them like your own teeth. They don’t slip, they look great, and they are the healthy solution to tooth replacement!
