Dental implants are replacement teeth designed to look and feel like a natural tooth or teeth. For dental implant surgery, your oral surgeon places a titanium implant post into the gum tissue where the tooth is missing. Because the implants are surgically inserted, they fuse to the jaw bone to create a solid and long-term foundation. They can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth and have a high success rate.
Removable dentures are cheaper upfront, but they do not fuse to the jaw bone or promote long-term oral health. They must also be replaced every few years and cleaned using special rinses. Dental implants become a permanent part of your smile and are cared for with regular brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Clean and healthy implants can prevent dental shifting and periodontal disease.
If a tooth has been missing for a long time, or there is not enough jaw bone to support the implant, our oral surgeons can place bone grafts to help new bone regrow in a weakened area.
