Dental implants feel like your natural teeth because implants are bridges that are permanently anchored to your jaw. They can replace ill-fitting dentures or missing teeth.
Implants Statistics show that 69% of adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth to an accident, gum disease, a failed root canal or tooth decay. Furthermore, by age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their permanent teeth.*
Nearly 40 million American have lost some or all of their teeth, making dental implants a popular option for restoring smiles. Implants are comfortable, attractive and help patients regain their confidence by giving them a reason to smile again! Implants are also an alternative to bridges, partials or dentures. Implants can look and feel like natural teeth.
An implant simply is a metallic titanium object that is inserted into the jawbone to act like a natural tooth-root. Titanium isn’t recognized by the body’s immune system, so it is not rejected as an implant. It integrates with the jawbone to give a firm support to the artificial replacement that it will support.
