Dental Implants are a permanent solution to recapture a beautiful smile and provide you with the most natural chewing function possible.
A Dental Implant is a man-made replacement for the root of a tooth that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. After 4 - 6 months the bone fuses around the implant and is then used to anchor Crowns, Bridges or Dentures.
At Progressive Periodontics we understand that the loss of a tooth can be devastating. Your teeth play an extremely important role in chewing function and appearance and the loss can lead to many changes within the mouth. These changes may include:
- Inability for teeth to perform natural functions such as chewing .
- Altered speech and dietary habits.
- Additional strain on remaining teeth, resulting in permanent damage such as tooth loss and joint disorders.
- An un-esthetic smile.
- Resorption of the jawbone (severe bone loss occurs when a tooth is lost).
Throughout your Dental Implant procedure every possible step is taken to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Precise post-surgical instructions are given to all patients, ensuring healing occurs quickly and effectively.
