Many of our patients have experienced outstanding results from implant dentistry! Consider some of the things to expect from the results:
- You'll need to allow some time for the implant to fuse with the bone. This is essential to the healing process. You'll wear a temporary restoration during this time. After that, the permanent tooth restoration will be attached to the implant.
- Dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime, making them one of the longest-lasting tooth replacement systems, if not THE longest-lasting tooth replacement system.
- Dental implants offer maximum stability. They stand apart from other tooth replacement systems because they are embedded in the bone beneath your teeth. There, the implants form a secure bond with the bone. For this reason, they won't move around and they are highly unlikely to fail once the site heals.
- Dental implants look like your natural teeth. The porcelain dental crown, dental bridge or denture fastened to the dental implants look incredibly lifelike. Their color is matched to the color of your natural teeth, and they have the luster and sheen of real enamel.
