Dental implants are a wonderful innovation that act as a foundation for your replacement teeth. If you’re missing teeth, you may have noticed that your ability to eat is impaired. You may be embarrassed about your smile and feel inhibited in social situations.
Dental implants and new replacement teeth can give you a new lease on life by providing you with the ability to once again eat, talk, and smile normally. Getting these missing teeth replaced can also improve your facial structure, preventing a sunken look.
Dental implants are tiny posts made of titanium that are placed in your jawbone near the areas where you are missing teeth. The surrounding jaw bone will bond with the titanium post and provide a new foundation for your new teeth. Replacing your missing teeth and using dental implants can also help prevent bone deterioration that would normally occur with missing teeth.
Dental implants are an exciting new technology that can literally change the way you live. Once you have your implants and your replacement teeth, you can rediscover pleasure in eating, talking, and laughing.
Why Consider Dental Implants?
Losing a tooth can cause further consequences if it isn’t treated. Your health and lifestyle can be affected if you choose not to replace the tooth or teeth you have lost. Losing a tooth can cause:

- Problems chewing properly.
- Added stress to remaining teeth.
