Advantages of Dental Implants

Once you learn about dental implants, you finally realize there is a way to improve yourlife. When you lose several teeth – whether it’s a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself.

Why Dental Implants?
• Do not have to treat adjacent teeth for a bridge
• Replaces a missing tooth with an individual dental implant tooth
• Will never decay
• Will never get periodontal disease
• Able to eat and chew food better
• Prevents bone loss
• Preserves jaw bone
• Are more esthetic and appear like natural teeth
• Easier to clean and floss
• Provide retention for dentures
• Able to wear dentures better and with comfort
• Can last a lifetime

Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind.

A Swedish scientist and orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Per-Ingv Branemark, developed this concept for oral rehabilitation more than 35 years ago. With his pioneering research, Dr. Branemark opened the door to a lifetime of renewed comfort and self-confidence for millions of individuals facing the frustration and embarrassment of tooth loss.

Why Select Dental Implants Over More Traditional Types Of Restorations?

There are several reasons: Why sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge a space? In addition, removing a denture or a “partial” at night may be inconvenient, not to mention that dentures that slip can be uncomfortable and rather embarrassing.

Are You A Candidate For Implants?

If you are considering dental implants, you must be examined thoroughly and your medical and dental history reviewed. If you have been missing teeth for many years, you may need additional procedures, like bone grafting before placing an implant. Dr. Burger has developed a bone grafting technique (see under bone grafting in the drop down menu) that is much easier and safer than what is conventional done.
