What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants continue to change how we live. 

Dental implants are modeled to provide you an option for replacement teeth to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. 

Our patients who have lost teeth have the chance to regain the ability to eat practically anything, knowing that their teeth look and feel natural and that their facial structure will be well-preserved. Pearl’s patients who opt for dental implants will be able to smile with confidence.

Nowadays, there are several individuals that are missing at least one tooth. At Pearl, we aim to provide the best solutions available that will match the appearance and functionality of your natural teeth with dental implants.

The dental implants are small titanium posts that are intricately placed into the jawbone in the areas where the teeth are missing. The bone then bonds with the titanium, creating a sturdy foundation for substituted teeth. The small posts that protrude through the gums are subsequently attached to the implant. Additionally, implants help maintain facial structure, thus preventing bone weakening that may occur with missing teeth.

With the availability of dental implants, our cosmetic dentists can provide further comfort and stability. 

Dental implants can help to restore your smile back to looking and functioning naturally. 

It’s so good that no one will even know you were missing a tooth; all that is left is your glowing smile.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are securely attached, which allows you to boost your confidence in the way you smile, eat, speak clearly, and overall daily activities. 

Additional benefits of dental implants include:

  • Convenience
  • Improved Appearance
  • Endurance
  • Improved Comfort
  • Improved Health

Why select Dental Implants over more traditional types of procedures?

There are several reasons to opt for dental implants. For example, you should not have to sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge a space between teeth. Furthermore, removing a denture or a partial at night may be inconvenient, in addition to the fact that dentures that are prone to slipping and are more likely to be uncomfortable and rather embarrassing.

If you are considering implants, we must examine your mouth thoroughly and have your medical and dental history reviewed. If we determine that your case is not ideal for implants, methods of improving outcomes, such as bone grafting, may be suggested. However, not all patients are viable candidates for dental implants. If you have healthy gums and sufficient bone strength to support the implant, then you will be permitted to complete this procedure. It is also important to note that you must adhere to your commitment to maintaining healthy oral hygiene, including maintaining at-home care and regular visits to the dentist.

If you find yourself missing multiple teeth and searching for a more permanent option, dental implants are available to help you live confidently again. For more information or to find out if you are a candidate for this dental procedure, contact Pearl. today.
