There are endless reasons that could cause you to lose a tooth or even multiple teeth. Whether you’ve lost your tooth to disease, injury, or any other reason, dental implants may be the answer for you.
Dental implants can restore your smile and your oral health, which will reinvigorate your confidence and even allow you to talk and eat as you would with your natural healthy teeth.
Stability of ill-fitting dentures was the main reason we got involved with dental implants. For those that have dentures without implants the quality of life is very challenging. Your ability to chew is compromised a lot. Foods like corn on the cob, steak, fruit salads are very difficult if not impossible to enjoy. Mostly you can chew efficiently with dental implants instead of swallowing your food whole.
What is a Dental Implant?
The implant essentially has two parts, the titanium post, and the tooth. The post is the part that is surgically placed into your jawbone. We call them root form implants as they mimic the natural tooth root. These are allowed to heal and then a tooth is placed on the root (implant) in approximately 4 months.

What About Implants for Multiple Missing Teeth?
Implants are the best alternative when it comes to missing teeth. They chew and floss like your original natural teeth. They keep and stabilize bone and soft tissue as well as the benefit they don’t decay. There are multiple options depending on your wants.
