Why Implants?

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Why Ceramic Implants | Natural

You have multiple options for tooth replacement. However, a dental implant is the best choice if you want a smile you can show off that feels natural. And no one will be able to tell a tooth was ever missing!

Why Ceramic Implants | Strength

Dental implants are strong, secure and you never even feel them in your mouth! The ceramic dental implant is your optimal choice to gain back the ability to be able to eat without discomfort or pain.  It’s like turning back the clock.

Why Ceramic Implants | Healthy

Studies show that people with a full set of teeth tend to live longer lives. Missing teeth are linked to diabetes, obesity, depression and insecurity. Fortunately, dental implants can help prevent or reverse some of these serious health issues.

Why Ceramic Implants | Durable

Did you know that a dental bridge only lasts 7-10 years on average and a partial denture only lasts a couple of years? Do you want a permanent tooth replacement solution? Dental implants are made to last a lifetime when properly maintained.

What is a dental implant?

The implant body or post is the portion of the implant that is inserted into the jawbone. The implant body integrates with the jawbone and becomes the anchor for the new tooth.

The implant abutment is the portion of the dental implant inside the crown. Sometimes the abutment is created with the implant body as one piece. Other times, it is separate and attached to the implant with a screw. The abutment shapes the gum tissue and supports the crown.

The dental implant crown is the portion of the dental implant you see, but if done correctly, no one can tell it is not a natural tooth. The crown is bonded or cemented to the implant abutment and is commonly made of a ceramic or zirconia material because of its naturally white color and strength.

Success Rate Of A Dental Implant Vs. A Traditional Bridge

The traditional dental bridge has been around for decades and was previously seen as an ideal solution to replacing a missing tooth. As technology has advanced, the dental implant is now the optimal long-term tooth replacement option because it can last a lifetime. Research shows that a dental bridge lasts only 7-10 years on average and then must be replaced. This is due to the bridge being difficult to clean and therefore making decay of the crowned teeth eminent.
