There is an estimated 1 in 4 adults who experience tooth loss between the ages of 21 and 30. A dental implant is a safe and long-term solution for replacing missing teeth that improves your smile’s appearance and function.

Using a dental implant in conjunction with a replacement crown can be used to replace a single tooth or in small groups to anchor a denture or dental bridge. Like natural tooth roots, dental implants provide a strong, long-lasting solution to tooth loss and prevent bone loss in the jaw.

Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement due to their many benefits. The following are a few examples:

  • A natural-looking smile: Dental implants are designed to closely resemble your natural teeth.
  • Improved oral health: Since surrounding teeth are not modified to anchor implants, more of your natural teeth are preserved intact, contributing to improved long-term oral health.
  • Improved speech: Removable dentures that are not anchored can cause slurred or mumbled speech. There is no need to worry about this with dental implants.
  • Improved comfort: Dental implants eliminate the slipping and discomfort associated with removable dentures.
  • Improved function: Dental implants function in a similar manner to natural teeth, allowing you to eat without discomfort.
  • Durability: Dental implants are stable, sturdy, and stain-resistant.
  • Preserve healthy bone structure: When teeth are removed, the jawbone is left with empty spaces. These spaces can, over time, lead to deterioration. Similarly to natural teeth, dental implants are capable of preventing this type of deterioration since they function as tooth roots.
  • Long-term solution: Dentures must be replaced approximately every 5-7 years, while implants last a much longer period of time.

If properly maintained, dental implants can last a lifetime. If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the right option for you. Before determining whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants, we will assess your oral and overall health. The following considerations should be taken into account:

  • An adequate amount of bone support is required to anchor the implant.
  • The gums should be in good health.
  • The location of the sinuses and nerves
  • Overall health, including chronic conditions

In some instances, we may recommend advanced treatment for your upper or lower jaw in order to ensure that you have the bone support necessary for implantation. Whenever possible, your treatment plan is tailored to meet your specific needs and goals for a healthy smile.
