What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
“Smile, for everyone lacks self-confidence and more than any other one thing a smile reassures them.” – Andre Maurois
But what happens when a smile is the cause of a person’s lack of self-confidence? Missing teeth can be a source of discomfort and insecurity for many people. Fortunately, there are several cosmetic dentistry procedures available – like Dental Implants - to help give you that beautiful smile you so dearly miss.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Quite simply, a dental implant is a replacement tooth root that is made of titanium and anchored into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or missing teeth as a result of gum disease, injury, or some other reason.
Dental implants are beneficial for a number of reasons:
Look and Feel: Dental implants look and feel like real teeth. They are strong, stable, durable, and do not interfere with your ability to eat, smile, or speak. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Comfort: Implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures. Because they are anchored into the jaw bone, you will forget the implant is even there.
Maintenance: Unlike other treatment options that require special care, dental implants are cared for just like real teeth – brushing and flossing.
Oral Health: Dental implants do not require the reduction of surrounding teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Dental implants are put into place without harming or affecting the surrounding teeth
Self-Confidence: Dental implants give you a renewed confidence in your smile.
“Smile, it is the key that fits the lock of everybody’s heart.” – Anthony J. D’Angelo
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health and has healthy gum tissue, free of periodontal disease. The candidate must also have an adequate jaw bone to support the implant.

WHAT IS COSMETIC DENTISTRY?
While traditional dentistry focuses on oral hygiene and preventing, diagnosing, and treating oral disease, cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of your smile. Cosmetic dentistry refers to any dental procedure designed to improve the color, shape, or arrangement of teeth. Cosmetic dentistry offers many procedures for people who are unhappy with their smile.
Today, cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever before, and dentists have a wide variety of tools and techniques to help give you that beautiful smile you have always wanted.
“Professional orthodontic treatments have come a long way in recent years, with innovative options such as clear aligner trays, lingual braces, and ceramic braces,” said John F. Buzzatto, DMD, MDS, president of the AAO. “Healthy teeth can be moved at any age…”
