Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved appearance

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. They become permanent by fusing with the bone.

Improved Speech

No worrying whether your dentures will fall out. This is a permanent fix for your teeth.

Easier To Eat

Because dental implants are permanent, it is easier to eat without the anxiety of them ever slipping or falling out.

Dental Implants or Bridges?

Two common options to replacing missing teeth include dental implants and dental bridges. There are key differences between the two. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is anchored in place of a missing tooth. A dental bridge, however, does not replace the tooth root. A bridge uses one or more surrounding teeth to support the bridge fixture.
