With an estimated 80 million Americans undergoing a tooth extraction each year, many people have chosen to opt for dental implants to replace their missing teeth. Implants imitate the natural structure of the tooth, and they are incredibly long-lasting.

We use a dental fixture to replace the tooth or teeth that have been weakened by decay. Dental implants are bonded with the jaw, which then has an abutment attached which will hold and support your dental crown or crowns.

Why choose a dental implant?

As the most durable solution for a tooth replacement, it’s not hard to see why so many patients choose implants. Dental implants smoothly integrate with your jaw bone to become a permanent part of your mouth, which affords many people the opportunity to feel normal after their mouth has healed. Dental implants can also help improve any issues with the shape of your face that may have been caused as a result of missing teeth.

When deciding between dentures and dental implants, many people consider the functionality options of their two choices. Dental implants allow you to retain about 95 percent of your chewing ability, whereas dentures typically afford just 70 percent.
