Implants are changing the way people live! With
implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and
confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Dental
implants are designed to provide a foundation for
replacement teeth that look, feel and function like
natural teeth. A patient who has lost teeth regains the
ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with
confidence. The implants themselves are titanium posts
which are placed into the jawbone (upper or lower) where
the missing teeth used to be. In addition, the implants
can preserve the facial bone structures by preventing
the continuation of bone loss after tooth removal.
Is implant placement painful?
Nearly all implant procedures are performed with
local anesthetic in a comfortable dental chair.
Following implant placement, most patients experience
some mild soreness for a day or so. Over-the-counter
pain relievers almost always do the trick. After healing
has occurred, implants give the patient the freedom to
chew and smile painlessly again.
who are tired of having ill-fitted plates that require
frequent re-lining are upgrading to
implant-supported-dentures that snap into the implants
for a tight, secure fit and increased jaw strength. Less
atrophy in the jaw bone due to the stimulation of the
implants means less change in the gum tissue and facial
structure and therefore, less change in the fit of the
denture. All this translates into increased confidence,
easier chewing and a more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Implants actually preserve bone. When the jaw
loses teeth, the bone atrophies away and the face
may sink in.
- Implants minimize this, keeping the bone
stimulated and the face and muscle tone looking

common cause for bridge failure).

- Implants add stability, preventing other
teeth from bearing too much biting force stress, and
keep the chewing forces off your tender gums.
- Dental implants increase chewing

and youthful appearance.
Once fitted, implants are as secure as a natural
tooth. While implants are relatively easy to fit, they
also last for a lifetime. Unlike dentures, implants are
comfortable and always a perfect fit. Importantly, they
also enable you to eat all your favorite foods with real
