When permanent teeth are lost, regardless of the reason or number of teeth, can offer a “new lease on life.” They are superior to other choices because they are solid, secure, and aesthetic. After nearly 35 years of use, dental implant patients have had a 90 to 95% proven success rate in appropriately chosen cases.
A dental implant is a special surgical grade titanium post, manufactured to highly precise specifications, under strict sterile conditions. It is inserted surgically into the jawbone below the gum surface. With proper use of the newest anesthetics and medications you need not be concerned about pain. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation onto which your new teeth are then attached and shaped to match your mouth. The number of teeth being replaced will determine the best kind of restoration for you. Cosmetic implants can help replace a single tooth, or a full set of teeth. If you have been suffering with partial or full dentures, or are missing teeth, or feel you need teeth extracted, do not hesitate to call to be evaluated for implants or other forms of cosmetic dentistry
