A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth. They create a foundation or scaffold for your natural bone to grow around, allowing you to have natural-looking dental restorations without the hassle and discomfort of dentures.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?
Generally, anyone at any age can benefit from dental implant procedures. However, there are a few criteria which must be met for them to be a success. Prior to implant placement, you must be evaluated to see if you are a good candidate. Some of these criteria are:
Having a minimum level of existing bone
Current or former smoker
Ability to undergo dental surgery
Have chronic disorders such as diabetes or untreated heart disease
Have been treated with radiation therapy around the potential implant site.
If you meet these criteria, you must commit to routine professional dental cleanings and maintain healthy oral hygiene self-care practices post implant placement to ensure the further success of your dental treatment.
Why Should I Get Dental Implants?
Comfort: Since each implant is free-standing, they are more comfortable than dentures or bridges, which are tethered to other teeth
Strength: They are made of titanium and, if properly cared for, they will last a lifetime
Fit: Individual restorations ensure a custom fit to your unique jaw and smile
Speech: Unlike glued dentures or partials, they don’t interfere with the soft tissues of your mouth, allowing your speech to stay the same as it was pre-dentures
Flossing: You can floss around your dental implant and other teeth without the need for specialized flossers or appliances
