How is a dental implant different?

Many tooth replacement options, like dentures and bridges, are designed to sit on top of the patient’s gum tissue. Dental implants, on the other hand, are actually embedded in the patient’s jawbone and gum tissue, through a small titanium root.

How do these implant roots work?

There’s a key reason that these roots are made of titanium; titanium has the ability to bond with natural bone tissue, through a process called osseointegration. Not only does this implant root hold the restoration in place, it also works to support adjacent bone tissue and keep it healthy.

What happens once my implants are in place?

To put it simply, you just jump back into your normal life! With dental implants, you don't need to alter your diet, your daily routine, or your activity schedule. You’ll find that implants are exceptionally easy to live with and to care for. Additionally, because implants are customized to blend with your natural smile, they’ll integrate seamlessly with your natural teeth.
