Dental implants can restore your feelings of positive self-esteem and bring back a spring in your step.

Long Term Benefits:
Bones, Gums, & Teeth
Missing teeth have a serious impact on your health. Dental implants prevent future tooth and bone density loss while maintaining a full, permanent set of teeth. When you are missing a tooth, the gums in the neighboring area around the gap start to recede and the bone weakens.
Dental implants prevent bone loss and deterioration while supporting bone structure and preserving bone mass. They keep your jaw stronger because they are fixed to the jawbone itself. Implants act as if they were natural teeth roots providing a secure connection between your gums and crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants function just like natural tooth roots. This offers a number of dental health advantages. For one, your bite strength with dental restorations will be comparable to your bite strength with your natural teeth. In addition, there is added stability with dental implants compared to removable dental restorations. And since the dental implants function just like natural roots, bone loss and gum recession as a result of missing root structure is eliminated.
Comfort, Strength, and Stability
Implants can last for decades with proper home care and professional maintenance. Permanently placed teeth are healthier for your other teeth by increasing the stability of dental restorations.
Your dental implants will become a durable part of your smile. There is no risk of implants slipping out of place regardless of if you are laughing, speaking, or even just yawning.
You’ll find the enhanced stability and security for your dental bridges, dentures, and individual dental crowns make implants the strongest form of teeth repair.
People who wear dentures know all too well the annoyances that come with adhesive dentures. Adhesive dentures constantly slip, click, and perform at under 25% eating proficiency. Not to mention the constant readjustments associated with a receding jawline.
With implant supported dentures, denture wearers get results they might not know were possible. Frequent denture slippage is eliminated by holding them in place with a post embedded in the jawline. Dental implants put an end to irritated gums while eliminating slippage. Bite strength is increased greatly allowing you to eat the favorite foods you used to enjoy.
