How do dental implants work?

The process of replacing teeth is intricate but safe. The gum skin is pulled back to reveal the bone of the jaw. A hole is drilled to fit a metal screw. The artificial tooth is then placed on the metal screw like a cap. The entire process is quick and safe.
Why do people get dental implants?

Implants are used to replace missing teeth. The tooth could have been lost due to poor oral hygiene, substandard surgery or impact to the mouth, such as a collision. The reason for getting a dental implant isn’t important. What matters is that the area is filled in with a new structure.
What can dental implants do for me?

If you have lost teeth, you should consider dental implants. They are stronger and more reliable than dentures or bridges, and they can protect your mouth from bacteria. Having a decayed or missing tooth will only lead to further problems. Pain and infection will likely occur if your mouth is exposed and unprotected.

Are dental implants effective?

Today’s dental technology is safe, advanced and effective. Most dental implants have a 90% success rate or higher. The screws are made out of a tough titanium and the crowns are sculpted to resemble the real thing.

Because the implants are placed in the bone, they take on a natural look, feel and function. Your smile says so much about you. Invest in your identity with dental implants.
