Dental Implants Can Improve Your Oral Health

Lasting Results

When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last 25 years or more and provide lifelong benefits for your smile.

Improved Oral Health

After tooth loss, the jawbone can start to shrink, causing other health problems. Dental implants are the only treatment for missing teeth that also prevents bone atrophy in the jaw.

Implants Can Even Address  Bone Resorption in the Jaw

Dental implants are a unique method of tooth replacement because they can help stop bone loss, which is a natural consequence of missing teeth. Dental implants act like tooth roots, ensuring important minerals are delivered to the bone to keep the jaw healthy and strong

There are certain factors that can affect your candidacy for dental implants...

Before Treatment Patients Might Need to Address:

Jawbone Atrophy

After a tooth falls out, the jawbone begins to recede. Implants require sufficient tissue for support so bone grafting might be recommended.

Smoking or Tobacco Use

Anyone who smokes or uses tobacco is at a higher risk of dental implant failure due to the effect it has on your body's ability to heal.

Periodontal Disease

As gum disease progresses, it can weaken the surrounding tissues and jeopardize your overall oral health.

Certain Health Conditions

Conditions such as poorly controlled diabetes and autoimmune diseases may increase your risk of dental implant complications.

If you are worried about pain, rest assured...
