Developed almost 50 years ago, dental implants have truly proven to be a miracle for hundreds of thousands of patients around the world! Implants can be used in any bony area of the body, but in dentistry they consist of small titanium cylinders affixed to the jawbone to replace lost teeth. Dental implants function exactly the same as regular teeth and are securely anchored in the jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. Some people find dental implants more convenient than dentures.
Signs You May Need Dental Implants
Your dentures are uncomfortable.
You are missing one or multiple teeth.
You have dental bridges.
You are unable to eat your favorite foods.
Tooth loss is making you appear older.
Today's modern implant treatment can replace everything from a single missing tooth to a completely missing arch. Bridges and partial dentures address the short-term cosmetic problems of missing teeth, but do nothing to stop bone loss. Bridges also require that two or more teeth be prepared to serve as abutments (posts) for a bridge, leaving them at a much greater risk for cavities and endodontic failure. If the original abutment teeth fail, more healthy teeth must be sacrificed to serve as posts, while you continue to lose bone beneath the bridge.

With implants, however, the healthy teeth are left alone. Dental implants, like natural teeth, also transmit chewing forces to the jawbone, which reduces bone loss. This is why many leading dental organizations now recognize dental implants as the standard of care in tooth replacement treatment.
