What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are permanent anchors that integrate with the jawbone to provide a stable base for long-term tooth replacement. Customized crowns (the teeth) are then attached to the implants.

Because dental implants become part of the jaw, they look and feel like natural teeth. They don’t move or slip around while you eat or talk.

 

 

Compare Teeth Replacement Options

You can put an end to dealing with missing teeth or repetitive dental work with dental implants. Take a look at how dental implants compare to traditional bridges and dentures.

 

 

How long do they last?

Dental Implants: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dentures: They typically last 5-7 years.
Bridges: Traditional bridges typically last 7-10 years.

 

 

How do they keep my mouth healthy?

Dental Implants: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone, like natural tooth roots, preventing the jawbone from deteriorating. They can be precisely placed without damaging healthy surrounding teeth.
Dentures: Dentures accelerate jawbone loss, and they can cause gum irritation and sores.
Bridge: To attach a traditional bridge, healthy teeth are ground down, permanently damaging them.
