They are strong, long lasting and can even stabilize a denture.
Implants prevent bone loss due to missing teeth and preserve facial structure.
They are made of biocompatible materials, therefore accepted by your body.
They stay in place, so you do not have to worry about them slipping around.
Eating and speech is enhanced with dental implants.

Dental implants can stop this process.
A traditional denture or dental bridge does not.

- With traditional dental bridges, teeth adjacent to missing teeth are normally ground down to be used as anchors for a dental bridge.
There are no loose parts to worry about losing.
The dental implant is stable and comfortable.
The implant will not move around when eating and speaking.
