When any of your natural teeth are lost or need to be removed, Ivory Dental Practice can replace them and restore your smile using our premium-quality dental implants.
Missing teeth are not only an aesthetic concern. The resulting gap can also cause neighboring teeth to shift and leave you more susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, jaw joint problems and even bone loss. Dental implants prevent these potential problems and leave your smile intact.
What is a Dental Implant?
Our dental implants are tiny titanium cylinders that replace missing roots. Your dentist inserts the implant into your jaw bone and, once it has successfully integrated with the surrounding bone and tissues, secures a replacement tooth on the top. The entire implant system looks and feels like a natural tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have a host of benefits that make them one of our most popular restorative treatments:
- They are securely anchored and do not slip or shift like dentures can.
- By filling a gap left by a lost tooth, they prevent the surrounding bone from shrinking.
- Unlike some treatments like bridges, dental implants do not need the surrounding healthy teeth to be altered before placement.
- You will be able to eat without pain or discomfort
With regular dental examinations and good standards of oral hygiene, your dental implant will add form and functionality to your smile for many years. At Ivory Dental practice we use the finest quality implants from the most reputable manufacturers, so you can rest assured that your restoration will remain an asset.
