If you are missing teeth, crowns and bridges or dentures are not your only options for repair. Dental implants offer patients a stronger and more permanent way of replacing missing teeth than either bridges or dentures. Made of titanium, dental implants are strong, safe, and attach easily to the underlying bone. With dental implants, a small titanium screw or cylinder is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth / teeth. Because dental implants fuse to the jawbone, they offer better stability, look extremely natural, and provide a secure fit.
State-of-the-art dental implant technology provides predictable, comfortable, and aesthetic results allowing high quality eating, speaking, and smiling. Chewing and speech problems caused by missing teeth may be restored or improved. You'll be able to eat foods you previously avoided. Best of all, an increased confidence in your smile allows you to enjoy an active lifestyle. That's why many people choose dental implants over other procedures. The result is a natural appearance that is intended to be permanent.
Candidates need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Kahal or Dr. Wight will help determine whether you are a good candidate.
