Implant restorations are the ultimate teeth replacement solutions. Ever since your dentist in Alpine started offering dental implants, these modern devices have been changing the lives of patients from Alpine, Highland and nearby areas that are missing one or several teeth. Long-time denture wearers who get dental implants are astonished at how easy it is to eat their favorite foods again and smile confidently without worrying about losing their false teeth.
Dental implants are tiny screws that replace the tooth roots. The screws are made of titanium, zirconium or other materials that are safe for the body. Each implant is surgically placed into your jaw and allowed to fuse with bone before the artificial tooth or denture is attached on top. Unlike dentures that rest on the gums, dental implants become part of your bone, making them the most secure foundation for artificial teeth.
Look, feel and function like real teeth. Implants restore almost 100% of your chewing ability. You can eat the foods you love, even tough meat and raw apples.
Give you secure, confident smiles. Laugh, speak and interact with people confidently, knowing that your implant-supported teeth will never slip or come off.
Prevent bone loss. Missing teeth mean that the underlying bone no longer receives stimulation or necessary nutrients. This leads to bone loss over time. Unlike dentures and bridges, dental implants provide stimulation and keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
Are comfortable and low-maintenance. The denture or crown is supported by the implant, not the soft tissues. No more sore or tender gums from ill-fitting appliances! Cleaning your mouth is also a breeze—simply brush and floss like you normally would.
Improve your appearance. Implant-supported teeth create a balanced facial structure that makes you look younger.
