What are the benefits of using Dental Implants?
A traditional dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture in place.
Because an implant replaces the root as well as the tooth, and chewing is restored to normal, it provides the needed stimulation to encourage bone growth in your jaw.
A missing tooth gap can act as a trap for food and bacteria and can lead to gum disease and can also cause adjacent teeth to crookedly shift towards the gap. This pulls your teeth out of position and can affect your bite, your ability to chew and your appearance.
Dental Implants can help keep you free of gum disease by filling that gap. Additionally, implants provide support to neighboring teeth to prevent your teeth from shifting over time.
