While dental restorations replace missing teeth admirably, there’s always a question of underlying stability. Dentures must be adhered to gums, and bridges draw on the strength of surrounding teeth. Only dental implants allow restorations to behave and feel like natural teeth. Implants are tooth root replacements that become one with your jawbone over time. As they fuse with your bone, they form a secure foundation for any restorations you choose. Whether you’ll be replacing individual teeth with crowns, or hoping to improve support for existing sets of dentures, dental implants will sustain your restorations.

Restore a Smile With Natural-Looking Teeth
Dental implants are titanium screws that connect with your jaw bone. After your implants are placed, they undergo a process known as osseointegration, through which the biocompatible titanium connects with your bone. They become a true part of your jaw, and feel like natural tooth roots. Their advantages are also aesthetic. Although implants won’t be seen in your smile, they will allow you to replace any number of missing teeth, in any area of your mouth. Because these restorations exist on an individual basis, they look and function like natural teeth. No one will recognize your restorations as anything other than your own teeth.
