  • Your Speech pattern may be effected
  • Your Confidence suffers
  • Surrounding teeth begin to move & shift

  • Bite changes
  • TMJ problems
  • Gum tissue deteriorates
  • Underlying jawbone deteriorates
  • Sunken face appearance – which makes you appear older

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts or screws that are essentially tooth root replacements. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the gums and into the jawbone using computer-guided precision technology. Implants typically require a healing period of several months to actually become fused with the jawbone, effectively becoming a fully integrated component of your new complete smile.

Compared to traditional restorations that sit on top of the gums, dental implants actually replace the root of the tooth, which is an essential piece of the complex system that is your oral health. Implants prevent the jawbone deterioration and tissue loss that you usually see in patients with missing teeth or traditional restorations. In fact, implants actually stimulate new bone and tissue growth around the implant giving you the fully formed smile you had before missing teeth.
