Dental implants are a proven treatment option for patients who have lost some or all of their natural teeth.
For nearly 50 years, implants have been an important restorative option for patients. They have a success rate of nearly 95%, and they are a proven treatment option for patients who have lost some or all of their natural teeth. The placement of a narrow, titanium fixture into the jawbone imitates the root of a natural tooth and “tricks” the body into thinking it is a real tooth. This generates increased blood flow to this area, and it helps stimulate healthy gums and soft tissue. The use of dental implants can also help avoid any damage to adjacent, healthy teeth.
For patients missing all of their teeth, dental implants are an intriguing treatment option. The use of narrow body (mini) implants makes it possible to place implants in a wide range of patients, and they help create esthetics and function much better than traditional dentures. Patients wearing an implant retained denture have higher self-confidence, eat more nutritious foods and wear their teeth almost all the time. These situations require only minimally invasive surgery, and existing dentures can often be retrofitted to accommodate implants.
