Approximately 1 in 4 adults encounters tooth loss between the ages of 21 and 30. Lifesmiles Family Dentistry offers dental implants as a safe and durable solution for tooth replacement, enhancing both the appearance and functionality of your smile.

Dental implants can be paired with replacement crowns for single tooth replacement or utilized in small groups to support a denture or dental bridge. Serving as a strong and long-lasting alternative for tooth loss, dental implants also play a crucial role in preventing jaw bone loss akin to natural tooth roots.

There are numerous benefits to opting for dental implants as a tooth-replacement option, including:

  • Natural-looking smile:
    Crafted to closely mimic natural teeth, dental implants restore a seamless and natural-looking smile.
  • Improved oral health:
    By eliminating the need to alter surrounding teeth for support, dental implants help preserve more of your natural tooth structure, thereby enhancing long-term oral health.
  • Enhanced speech:
    Unlike removable dentures, dental implants provide stability, preventing teeth from slipping and improving speech clarity.
  • Enhanced comfort:
    Dental implants eliminate the discomfort and instability often associated with removable dentures.
  • Improved function:
    Functioning like natural teeth, dental implants enable you to eat and chew without discomfort or restrictions.
  • Durability:
    Dental implants are robust, stable, and resistant to staining, ensuring longevity and durability.
  • Preservation of healthy bone structure:
    Dental implants mimic the function of natural tooth roots, preventing jawbone deterioration and preserving healthy bone structure over time.
  • Long-term solution:
    Unlike dentures that require replacement every 5-7 years, properly cared for dental implants can last a lifetime.

Before undergoing dental implant placement, our team at Lifesmiles Family Dentistry will evaluate your oral and overall health to determine if you are a suitable candidate. Factors such as adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, sinus and nerve location, and overall health, including any chronic illnesses, will be taken into consideration. In some cases, advanced treatments may be recommended to enhance bone support in the upper or lower jaw, ensuring successful implantation.

If you are considering dental implants or would like to learn more about this tooth-replacement option, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Lifesmiles Family Dentistry today. Our dedicated team is committed to restoring the health and beauty of your smile, helping you achieve optimal oral health and confidence.
