Implant Benefits

The development of dental implants is a great way to replace missing teeth and allows for the elegant substitution of bulky and ill fitting dentures. Dental implants stabilize dental appliances.

Dental implants, as explained by Dr. Cholakis, "are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically inserted into the upper or lower jaw bone". These fabricated teeth are cemented to the implants to achieve a very natural looking dentition that often improves a patient's smile!

Dental implants have an excellent track record. Studies have indicated that these treatments are over 90% successful after ten years. Still, on rare occasions they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Considerations for dental implants:

  • Does not affect adjacent teeth when replacing one or more teeth.
  • Can potentially improve jaw joint problems or bite issues caused by teeth shifting into collapsed tooth spaces.
  • Improve a patients smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Support facial tissues.
  • Stabilize a fixed bridge or removable denture, thereby making them more secure and comfortable.
