Every year, countless Americans suffer tooth loss as the result of tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury. For years, the only way to deal with a missing tooth was with bridges or dentures. Unfortunately, no matter how good they look, these options will never feel and act like real teeth because they aren’t held in place by your jawbone the way real teeth are. Today, however, Dental Implants and Cosmetic Dentistry have become a popular alternative.
What are Dental Implants?
Unlike crowns, bridges, and dentures, which just address the visible portion of the missing tooth, dental implants surgically replace the roots of your teeth, providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Best of all, dental implants act and feel like real teeth.
It is an involved process that can last a number of months as the implant knits to your bone, but the end result is a natural-looking tooth that more firmly anchored in your mouth than any other solutions.

Benefits of Dental Implants
- Appearance: Because they are designed to fuse with the bone, the look, act, and feel like real teeth. Your friends and family won’t be able to tell the difference.
- Speech: Improperly fitting dentures can affect your speech. Because dental implants permanently fuse to the bone, they act like real teeth and thus don’t negatively affect speech.
- Comfort: Dentures can be uncomfortable. You will forget your dental implant is not a real tooth. They are that comfortable.
- Eating: Dentures and bridges can make eating difficult, especially when they do not fit properly. Dental implants, meanwhile, function like your own teeth.
- Durability: Dental implants are durable and are built to last.
