Lost or missing teeth no longer need to be replaced with bridges or dentures. Dental implants provide a host of benefits due to their permanent nature and strength. These implants mimic the strength and functionality of natural teeth because they become part of your facial bone structure.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • Improve your speech
  • Allow you to eat a normal diet
  • Provide low-maintenance comfort
  • Improve the look and strength of your smile

Dental Implants at Affiliated Dentists

Our process for dental implants begins with a thorough evaluation at our offices. The exam will include an evaluation of bone structure and jaw strength to accommodate the placement of the implants. After this evaluation, we can tell you whether dental implants are the right solution for you. If so, the next step is a surgery to implant a titanium post into the jawbone. One post is required for each new tooth that will be anchored. We then allow time for the bone tissue to fuse with the titanium post to create a solid foundation. Once the implants are secured, we will attach a handcrafted permanent crown to each post. The crowns will match your natural teeth perfectly.

Improve Your Speech

With dental implants, you won’t have to worry about dentures that slide around as you speak, making your words unclear. Implants can also be used as anchors for bridges and dentures to eliminate slipping.

Allow You to Eat a Normal Diet

The imitation of an entire natural tooth from the root up means that dental implants provide all the benefits and functionality of natural teeth. Dental implant patients enjoy a diet complete with all of the hard-to-chew foods those with natural teeth enjoy. They can also improve your bite.

Provide Low-Maintenance Comfort

Because implants are permanent, you won’t need to worry about removing or cleaning them. Implants also won’t rub against your gum as dentures sometimes can. With proper brushing and flossing, dental implants can last up to twenty-five years.

Improve the Look and Strength of Your Smile

The crowns over the implants are crafted to match your existing teeth perfectly. Unlike dentures that sometimes do not match your smile, it’s impossible to know which teeth are implants by simply looking at them.

Implants also have the added benefit of restoring the natural strength of your jaw by evenly distributing the pressure of biting across all the teeth. This equal distribution prevents further tooth or jawbone deterioration.
