Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the recommended solution for missing teeth, particularly for patients with individual missing teeth, for a variety of practical, aesthetic, and medical reasons. The functionality of dental implants is unmatched by other popular tooth-replacement strategies.
Dental implants are physically embedded into a patient’s underlying jawbone and osseointegrated into place. What this means is that the implant becomes a natural extension of the bone itself. This offers some obvious benefits for our patients, from stability to resilience and durability, from wear and tear to a better mouthfeel.
From an aesthetic standpoint, dental implants are difficult to tell apart from natural teeth. A well-crafted crown and a skillfully executed dental implant procedure can, with a little gum recontouring if necessary, look and feel like real teeth.
More importantly, dental implants replace the roots of natural teeth, thereby letting the body know to retain bone strength and density in the jaws. This is important for aesthetic and beauty reasons. Implants help preserve bone mass and allow for a younger, fuller looking face.
Dental implants allow patients to live as they did before the loss of their teeth. Implant crowns and the implants itself act as functional replacements to natural teeth. The crown replaces the visible portion of the teeth while the implant serves as its roots.

Should I choose dental implants?
Dental implants are the preferred choice for replacing missing teeth. However, each patient’s needs, desires, and budget are different. If dental implants are within your budget, they should be your first choice. However, if dental implants aren’t financially feasible, other viable alternatives offer performance, resilience, and longevity.
Ultimately, whether or not to get dental implants is a personal choice that should be made after consulting a dental professional such as an oral surgeon. Balancing the need for longevity, durability and other concerns such as financial feasibility and aesthetics will help you in the decision process.
At Facial & Oral Surgery Institute, we provide a range of teeth-replacement strategies for our patients. Afterall, the application of cosmetic dentistry is unique to every patient. What may work correctly for one patient may not be ideal for another. At Facial & Oral Surgery Institute, we care about providing the best functional and aesthetic results possible.
