Dental Implants Give Patients a Great Reason to Smile

Dental implants play an important role in replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants offer several advantages and health benefits for patients.
Perhaps the top reason dental implants are the No. 1 choice for patients is that they look and function like your own natural teeth. When you have dental implants, you can talk, eat and chew just like you normally would. They look so natural, people can’t tell the difference.
Another great reason to consider dental implants is that they can protect the rest of your natural teeth. That’s because when you have missing teeth, the spaces and gaps created allow teeth to move around, which weakens them. Placing dental implants where teeth should prevent your other teeth from shifting around.
Dental implants attach to your natural bone to stay in place.
There are a couple different ways that dental implants work – much of it depends on your unique dental health needs.
In general, there are three parts to the implant process. The implant itself, which integrates with your natural bone, a connector called an abutment that sits on top of the implant and a custom-made crown, which matches the rest of your teeth.
You can attach one or more crowns to the implant. You can also anchor dentures to an implant to keep them from moving around. Implants can make wearing dentures much more comfortable.
