Benefits of Dental Implants
In addition to an over 95% success rate and a beautiful, natural looking result, dental implants offer important benefits for the long term health of your smile- and overall well being.
- Bone retention in the jaw: the implanted post acts like the lost tooth root, stimulating healthy bone cell growth to reduce jaw shrinkage
- Permanent restoration: a dental implant can secure a denture or bridge for a stable restoration that provides a confident smile
- Normal diet and speech: a dental implant enables you to enjoy a varied, nutritious diet and normal speech for confidence in social interaction
