Why do I need a Dental Implant?

  • Missing teeth or Unrestorable teeth need replacement.

  • the impact of missing teeth can be devastating.

  • No one likes the idea that their smile will be incomplete, and we all rely on every one of our teeth for eating, speaking and smiling with ease.

The implant has three parts:

  • Implant

  • An abutment or Post

  • A crown

What are the advantages of Dental Implants?

  • It's important for both your health and your self-esteem to replace missing teeth. Not only do you lose chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but unreplaced teeth can cause other teeth to be stressed, lost, or crowded and create still more problems. A lost tooth certainly affects your appearance in a negative way, and you may feel self-conscious about smiling or talking.

  • Dental implants are permanently fixed. The dental implant post is inserted surgically into your jaw bone and, once the surgery has healed, the new crown is permanently attached to the post over the abutment. The new tooth will feel and function just like your own natural tooth, and you can expect to eat, brush and speak normally.

  • Dental implants prevent further bone loss. Whenever you lose a tooth, you will find that the bone in the area of loss begins to recede. Over time, the bone around your teeth will begin dissolve away, as it is no longer needed. As you can imagine, this loss of bone can effect more than your mouth. The entire structure of your face can change and become shrunken.

  • Dental implants allow you to preserve your remaining teeth. If you are missing only a single tooth or several, but still have remaining healthy teeth, a dental implant can replace the missing teeth without affecting the healthy teeth that remain. A dental bridge uses the teeth next to the empty space as anchors, and of necessity requires your dentist to cut down the healthy tooth and place a crown over it.
