Dental implants are extremely durable, they look, feel and function just like natural teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
The loss of even a single tooth can have a significant impact on an individual’s confidence and well-being; it affects one’s ability to eat certain foods, can result in further tooth loss due to the movement of the remaining teeth and can affect facial appearance (specifically the resulting “sunken-in” look associated with missing teeth). It can have a significant impact on personal confidence and happiness.
Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are an alternative to bridges and dentures, and are not only extremely durable, but look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants can also be used to secure bridges and dentures.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is surgically placed into the jaw, where it acts as an artificial “root” to secure the replacement tooth. A few months after the dental implant is placed in the jaw and is securely attached to the bone (“osseointegration”), a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the implant.
If you are missing one or more teeth, call to schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Salyani to determine if a dental implant is the functional and aesthetic smile solution for you.
