Learn More About Dental Implants
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that, when placed, gives your dentist the ability to place a crown in the area of the missing tooth. After placement, the implant helps to preserve the jawbone that would normally atrophy, or shrink, following the loss of the tooth. Because the implants become a part of your jaw, they won’t move or slip around while you eat or talk, like dentures are known to do. They function like normal teeth would.
Dental implants provide a long-term solution to replacing a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. With the highest success rate of all tooth replacement options, Dr. Nassiri meticulously designs your dental implants to be a perfect match for a natural-looking, lifelong smile.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental Implants are strong and stable, functioning like a natural tooth.
With dental Implants, you don’t need to drill down adjacent teeth, like you do with a bridge.
No more removing your teeth, slurring your speech or limiting your food choices.
The best bridges and dentures typically last five to ten years. Dental Implants can last a lifetime.Because of the long-term success, implants are actually less costly in the long run.
Implants preserve the integrity of facial structures. By preventing the bone resorption (deterioration) that would normally occur with the loss of teeth, the facial structures remain intact. This is particularly important when all of the teeth are missing, as the lower one-third of the face collapses if implants are not placed to preserve the bone.
