The next best thing to healthy, natural teeth, dental implants fill spaces in your mouth where a tooth or multiple teeth have been lost. They look, feel and function like natural teeth thereby giving confidence to patients in daily life. In addition, implants help to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile, hence improving appearance and speech. There is no longer a need for dentures so you can virtually eat anything without hesitation or worrying about dentures getting damaged. Overall, this is a long term solution, while implants may need periodic adjustments they can last a long time when properly cared for.

Reliable. Natural Looking. Cost-Effective
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium which replaces the missing tooth. The dentist inserts the implant into the jaw bone where the titanium then integrates with the bone. Just like your tooth root did before, the implant then builds a stable foundation for the crown, which will become the visible part of your new tooth.
Effects on jaw bone and gum
When you lose a tooth, it disturbs the interplay between teeth and bone. Because gum and bone are no longer stimulated well enough due to the missing tooth, the jaw bone starts shrinking and your gum pulls back. This can weaken neighboring teeth until they collapse. Teeth in the opposite jaw can then start growing into the gap.
The more teeth are missing, the more challenging it can become to replace them.
Effects on your appearance
Missing teeth and a reduced jaw bone can make your face look older and wrinkly, and for your cheeks to become hollow and saggy, because they can no longer fully stabilize your lips and cheeks from the inside.
Every tooth counts.
A single lost or damaged tooth can influence your daily life. Even though it may be at the back of your mouth and not visible from the outside, over time it can start affecting your appearance, self-esteem, your oral health and even your health in general.
