Dental implants have been one of the most important developments in the history of dentistry. The benefits are wide ranging from improved appearance and self confidence to a whole new feeling of well being and renewed enjoyment of life’s simple pleasures.
A fresh open palate and strong natural bite with no bulky unnatural plastic irritating sensitive gum tissue are just a few advantages dental implants offer.
A gentle surgical procedure is performed to place the dental implant. Fortunately there is no pain during implant surgery. Unlike natural teeth, dental implants do not have sensitive nerves. After surgery mild pain medication is all that is needed.
Bone thickness is important. Fortunately most people have sufficient bone. If not, new bone can be regenerated with bone grafting or GTR (guided tissue regeneration).
Implant patients can once again eat the healthy foods they have been missing. Apples, corn on the cob and fresh vegetables are back on the menu… even steak!
The scientific evidence is in, and dental implants are safely and effectively replacing the missing teeth and bone that were once lost after extractions.
