Dental Implants

Dental Implants - A worthwhile option for permanent teeth replacement.


Dental implants feel and look like natural teeth more than the other dental alternatives.  Did you know that dental implants are actually replacement tooth roots?  If you suffer from tooth loss due to tooth decay, gingivitis or because of tooth trauma or an accident to your mouth, you may be a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental implants start with a root device commonly made from titanium that is implanted into the jaw bone.  Dental implants are similar to tooth roots and will fuse with your jaw bone.  The dental implant acts as a base for a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, dentures or implant supported bridges.  Dental implants can support dental restorations for a single tooth or a group of teeth. Although the implant fuses into your jaw bone, it does feel slightly different from your actual tooth when you chew since it does not have the periodontal ligament.

There are many advantages to dental implants over traditional dentures or bridges.  Dental implants offer a strong foundation for permanent tooth replacement.  They can look and feel like your own teeth offering an improved appearance and confidence.  Most patients experience improved comfort over removable dentures, as well as improved speech.

It is easier to eat with dental implants, since removable dentures can slide and make eating difficult.  Dental implant recipients can smile with confidence knowing they have a healthy, stable set of teeth and improved oral health.  Dental implants are much more durable and convenient than dentures or partials, making your investment in this permanent tooth replacement worthwhile for many happy dental patients.  Ask your dentist if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Had a great visit! Janice was a pleasure and Dr. Porcaro was very personable. They both made me feel at ease. The doctors husband (can’t remember his name) was able to find the best financing to fit our budget. I would definitely recommend Grateful Dental to my friends and family.
