Losing your teeth can have a major impact in your life. It will make you feel less confident about your smile, prevent you from being able to chew your food properly and even affect your speech. If you have missing teeth or if you’re ready for a better alternative to your dentures, implant restorations may be the answer.
Benefits of Implant Restorations
There are several reasons why people are opting for dental implants. To begin with, these restorations are very durable. The implant is fused to your bone so you’ll know it’s just as strong and stable as your natural teeth.
Another benefit is that implants can last for a lifetime if you take good care of them. They are also natural-looking and are in fact designed to look just like the rest of your teeth. Unlike dentures, implants do not necessitate the reduction of neighboring teeth so there is no need to disturb the structure and condition of your healthy teeth. And lastly, with dental implants your smile will be greatly improved and you will feel much more confident around other people.
Dental Implant Restoration Process
The process will take several months to complete. First, the implant is placed in the jaw where it will fuse with the jaw bone over a period of 2-6 months. Then, we will design your replacement tooth (crown) and attach it to the implant. The final outcome will look and feel like your natural teeth. If several teeth are missing, we recommend an implant-supported bridge.
