That is why our staff is happy to provide you with some basic information on them and how they can give you the new smile you always hoped for.

Dental implants are a strong and reliable dental restoration that replaces your lost or missing teeth and goes deep into the bone giving support like a root of a tooth. It is a surgically placed product that gives you natural-looking results and makes eating, talking, and even singing easier. Dental implants can also be used to have restore multiple teeth and also secure dentures.

There are many benefits of dental implants including improved appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, bone health, and smile function. Implants are also very durable. They generally have a success rate up to 98 percent. That is a huge amount of successful treatments! No wonder they have become a popular form of smile restoration. If you take good care of your implant, it can last a lifetime.

In order to restore your smile with a dental implant, you need to have strong jaw bones and healthy gums. Your oral health also needs to be strong enough to undergo tooth extractions and oral surgery. However, once you have a dental implant, it is easily cared for. Caring for an implant is as simple as caring for your natural teeth. All you need to do is brush twice a day, floss once a day, rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash, and visit your dentist every six months.
