1. Improved Self Esteem - Smile more, Smile Confidently - dental implants simply give you your confidence and self esteem back.
2. Easier Eating - Missing teeth and dentures make chewing difficult - dental implants function like your own teeth allowing you to eat whatever you want. (Except for ice chewers)
3. 98% Success Rate - Dental implants have a very high success rate. When properly maintained and cared for they can last a lifetime.
4. Improved Speech - Dental implants are strong and feel like your own teeth. Dentures can slide and move around in your mouth - making speech difficult.
5. Better Overall Health - One of the biggest complaints of our patients is they can no longer eat healthy foods. Dental implants enable you to enjoy healthy foods like fruits and vegetables.
6. Improved Comfort - Since dental implants are integrated into your own jawbone (Osseointegration) they become a part of you. There is no slipping, painful gums and continued bone loss.
7. Investment in Your Future - Dental implants are a permanent solution. Imagine having a full set of healthy teeth again. Dental Implants are a life changing investment that provide you with a healthier physical and emotional lifestyle.
8. Convenience - Caring for dental implants is the same as caring for your regular teeth - they are a permanent fixed solution. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
9. Improved Appearance - Dental implants look just like your own healthy teeth. There is nothing like a beautiful smile and dental implants make that possible.
10. Halts Bone Loss - Any time you have a tooth removed, bone loss occurs. When you wear dentures bone loss occurs rapidly. In 1 year you can lose 10% of the mass of your jawbone. In 5-10 years you can lose 60% of your jaw bone mass. Implants actually help to stimulate and grow bone through a process called osseointegration.
What is osseointegration?
Dental implants are held in place by titanium screws placed in your jaw. Osseointegration occurs when bone cells attach themselves directly to the titanium surface, essentially locking the implant into the jaw bone.
