The Problem of Missing Teeth
When a person loses teeth, many physical and emotional problems occur. The person might lose self-esteem because of changes in facial shape, have difficulty chewing food, or have trouble speaking clearly. Worst of all, losing teeth leads to early aging of the face. Because missing teeth cause so much trouble, people usually see a dentist that can perform restorative procedures to replace missing teeth. Dentures and bridges are two of the most well-known devices to replace missing teeth and allow a person to regain functionality and experience improved appearance. Dental implants are a third option for patients.
The Solution of Dental Implants
Many people consider dental implants to be the most effective way to alleviate the problems caused by missing teeth. They have many advantages and are safer and more comfortable than ever before to receive.
Advantages of Dental Implants
- Dental implants are stronger than bridges or dentures.
- They are positioned in real teeth positions and they are extremely close to the strength of real teeth
- Dental implants are permanent. Once implanted, they function like teeth for the duration of a person’s life.
- Advances in the performance of this surgery have made it a safe and comfortable procedure.
Our periodontists installs dental implants. The steps to the procedure are fairly simple. First the jaw is prepared to receive implantation. After that, the implant is placed by our skilled periodontist, Usually the implant is made of titanium material, so it’s going to be extremely strong, just like real teeth.
Deciding whether dental implants are right for you
Most people are candidates for dental implants. Our dentist will sit down with you and discuss your options, tell you if you are a good candidate for the surgery, and answer any questions you might have about the procedure and outlook for your implants. Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide whether or not this is for you, but for the optimistic out there, know this: Implants are as close to real teeth as there is to have in the dental world. They are durable, function amazingly, and if installed properly, can’t even be distinguished from real teeth. Their benefits are so great that a consultation with our dentist for this procedure is recommended in almost all cases.

Now I Can Smile Again!
The dentist just made my front teeth/smile look like I had veneers implanted! She took away all my dark spots and heading without crowns and painful implants. It looks amazing! Thank You 🙂
The dentist was very kind + caring. Highly recommend! I only had a few days left on my dental insurance + she helped to prioritize my care + fit me in so that I could get issues taken care of in a pinch. The office manager, couldn't have been sweeter + she helped me to understand the sometimes tricky insurance pieces + actual prices I'd be paying before I made any decisions. A+ experience.
