Dental implants are man-made tooth roots to secure your replacement teeth naturally. When teeth are removed, the jaw bone heals by collapsing inwards upon itself. Unless tooth roots are there to stimulate the bone, the bone continues to shrivels away. Because bone loss is painless, you may think it's not happening to you. Guess what? It is!

Bone loss in the jaws occurs with everyone, any time you are missing teeth. And the reality is it won't stop until you die. Luckily, dental implants are a life-long solution to missing teeth. They are very durable, stable and strong and will last many years, however, on occasion, they will have to be replaced or tightened due to normal wear.

Dental implants can be used for many reasons, including:

  • To replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • To resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • To restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • To restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • To restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • To support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

At Dentalways, we think wearing traditional dentures is a pain. There’s no other way to say it.
