Missing teeth can be more than just an inconvenience. Gaps make biting and chewing difficult, cause unclear speech, and even have a detrimental effect on the health of your gums and jawbone.
If you are suffering from one or more missing teeth, implants are an incredible and long-lasting solution that may be able to meet your specific needs.
Over the last few decades, teeth implants have become a time-tested, durable, and extremely effective method of replacing missing teeth. Not only does this treatment have an excellent success rate, but it comes with a range of options and uses.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
Implant Dentistry is essentially the process of creating a complete synthetic tooth, from root to crown.
Teeth implants start with a titanium post. This post is placed right where the missing tooth root used to be. After it has been placed, the implant post will fuse to the bone in your jaw.
This happens through a process called osseointegration. This fusion reinforces the bone and the post, making both stronger and more secure.
From there, we will place a porcelain crown on top of the implant post, completing the tooth structure. You’ll regain a functioning, complete synthetic tooth that is designed to work just like a natural one, and not just replicate the appearance.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
Filling a gap in your bite can improve many aspects of your life, including:
- Your ability to chew and bite.
- Your ability to speak clearly and without difficulty.
- Completing the aesthetic of your smile.
- Maintenance is as simple as regular brushing and flossing.
Implants can also be used to restore multiple missing teeth by supporting full or partial dentures.
The Cost Of Implants
Myth: Dental implants are just a vanity expenditure.
Truth: Implant dentistry is a long-term investment into the continued health and function of your teeth. In fact, for many patients, these implants have been proven to last more than thirty years and counting!
Between the structural security that implant posts give to your jawbone, and the decades-long durability of your synthetic tooth, we’re sure that you’ll find your implant to have been a worthwhile, high-quality investment.
