What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a permanent, pain-free alternative for missing or failing teeth. The skilled surgeons at Park Dental Specialists secure a small titanium screw into the jawbone to replace the natural root portion of a missing tooth. Titanium is used because it is a strong, biocompatible material, readily accepted by the body. Once secured in the jawbone, the implant will then fuse to the bone, stimulating healthy bone growth as the bones recognize the implant as a healthy, natural tooth. The end result is a perfect anchor for a replacement tooth. A dental implant can replace a single tooth, or a complete set of teeth, called a full arch, on either the lower or upper jaws, or both.


Why Choose Dental Implants? 

The benefits of dental implants are many. Let’s take a look at how they can positively impact your life. 


Healthy Teeth:

As a standalone solution, dental implants keep remaining teeth healthy since they don't use any other teeth in the mouth to support them or hold them in place. 

Improved appearance:

If the root structure of a natural tooth is missing, the jawbone can shrink, causing premature aging. A dental implant restores your entire tooth and root, eliminating the possibility of a shrunken-looking jawline.

Long-lasting results:

Since dental implants are permanent, they are sturdy and comfortable, and can last a lifetime.

Easy care and maintenance:

Regular checkups, brushing, flossing, and good dental hygiene are all that are required to care for and maintain implants.

Overall better quality of life:

With increased confidence and self-esteem, you will look and feel better, knowing that you can smile confidently with natural-looking teeth. Enjoy your favorite foods and activities again with no fear or embarrassment.
