If you are healthy enough for an extraction or for oral surgery, you are probably a candidate for an implant. This reliable treatment—which boasts nearly a 98% success rate—is used to replace missing teeth. If you are interested in a dental implant, we recommend that you meet with our dentist soon. With a dental implant, you can enjoy several benefits, such as:

The ability to speak clearly: Some options used to replace missing teeth, like dentures, can slip—making some sounds difficult to pronounce. Fortunately, implants are sturdy and remove and do not slip.

Restored comfort: Eating with gaps in your smile can be very uncomfortable and missing teeth can result in an uneven bite. This can put pressure on your jaw and cause pain. Fortunately, implants can relieve that pressure and allow for comfortable chewing.        

A beautiful smile: Smiling with a gap in your teeth can be difficult, leading many people to smile with only their lips. However, implants are designed to match the color of your smile and to give a pleasing look. Also, implants can stop your other teeth from shifting, letting you keep your beautiful, straight smile.

A boost in self-esteem: With a complete, matching smile, you can expect a boost in self-esteem. And increased self-esteem can lead to a better standard of life.

Increased convenience: Implants are designed to act and feel like natural teeth, but the similarities run deeper. For example, one of the benefits of a dental implant is the fact that it can be cleaned and maintained just like your natural teeth.
