Improve your smile
Are you self-conscious about the gaps in your teeth or even hiding behind a hand when you smile or laugh? Natural-looking dental implants, can be an option to help you smile and laugh confidently, and maintain important jaw bone structure for years to come.
The bottom half of a dental implant may be titanium, but the top is a natural-looking crown that can be made to match the shade of your existing teeth. No one has to know you have an implant—nor will they be able to guess—unless you choose to tell them.
A Strong and Permanent Option
Implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, and once osseointegration occurs, they are as permanent and should be as strong as your natural teeth. Dentures, on the other hand, can slip and slide around in your mouth when you eat or speak which can be both embarrassing and frustrating. Additionally, dentures need to be taken out every night before bed, whereas dental implants are there to stay.
Prevent Jaw Bone Deterioration
When you lose your teeth, it can affect other things, such as your jaw bone, muscles, skin, bite (“occlusion”) and jaw joints (“TMJ’s”). You may have noticed an almost sunken look around the mouth of a family member of friend if they’ve had years of missing teeth or use of dentures. Since dental implants stimulate the alveolar bone, they are the only restorative dentistry option that stops the jawbone from resorbing itself. Although it takes time for healthy fusion to occur, implants are thought to be the best option for the long term, aside from keeping your original teeth!
