Do you suffer from a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth? If so, you are not alone. According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 178 million Americans have at least one missing tooth. Since dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device, this should not be the case. Let us help you work toward the perfect smile you dream about.

Dental implants are secured into the jawbone and they are not visible once surgically placed; this is the replacement for root of the tooth. The implant is used to secure the replacement tooth or denture into place.

The dental implants are strategically made with titanium or a titanium alloy. Titanium is the most widely used metal in both dental and any other bone implant. Titanium is lightweight, strong and biocompatible. Biocompatible means that it is not rejected by our bodies. One of the greatest biological reasons for titanium’s success rate with dental implants is because it contains osseointegration, which is a substance that helps fuse the implant to the bone.

When the tooth is lost, the bone that supported that tooth is lost as well. Placing the implant stabilizes the jawbone, preventing tooth loss and maintaining the bone density and stability. These dental implants will also help you eat, chew, talk, and smile like you only thought you could dream about! Call us today and schedule the appointment that will change your life forever.
