If you have missing teeth, you know how it can negatively impact your health, your confidence and your life.

But did you know that if you don’t treat the problem, your remaining natural teeth will gradually move and shift into the empty spaces, causing the structure of your mouth to be misaligned? This precipitates other complications, and that’s why you need the dental treatment called dental implants.

A dental implant is a tooth replacement solution. In a dental implant case, an artificial, stand-alone titanium tooth “root” that is anchored into your mouth at the location of your missing tooth. Crowns and bridges can be placed on top of the implant. The biocompatible materials used in implants encourage new bone growth around them (“osseointegration”) so that they stay firmly in place, allowing you to chew and talk normally. In fact, 98% of implants last for the life of the patient!

Due to their stability, implants can be used for:

* Single tooth replacement, when restored with a porcelain crown
* Multiple tooth replacement, when two to three implants support a fixed bridge
* Full mouth rehabilitation, such as the case of implant-supported dentures
