A missing tooth or teeth can be more than just an inconvenience. Severe difficulties can develop as a result, including problems with biting and chewing, slurring or whistling while speaking, and even bone recession in the jaw.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms, we have good news for you! Dental implants are an extremely effective, durable, and natural-looking way to restore your bite and your smile to full function.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are the first part of a complete synthetic tooth structure that will function and look exactly like your natural tooth.
For this tooth structure to be stable and permanent, it requires a root. This implanted root not only keeps the crown of the tooth secure, but it also protects the bone of the jaw from recession. We make the root out of medical-grade titanium, which has proven to be strong, long-lasting, and extremely effective.
Your specialist will implant the titanium root into the jaw, where it will eventually go through a process called osseointegration. This means that the bone and the dental post fuse together in a way that makes them both stronger than they were before.
Once this has happened, we can top it with a custom-crafted dental crown which will complete your synthetic tooth and allow you to bite, speak, and smile again without difficulty.
