If you have missing permanent teeth in your smile, and it has affected your smile confidence, you are not alone. At Waterview Dental Group, we have helped many patients regain their confidence and their oral health through an effective tooth restoration procedure called dental implants.

Dental implant restoration works by surgically implanting a titanium post (which effectively replicates a tooth root) into the jawbone underneath the gum line. This will provide a strong foundation for which your dentist can place replacement teeth or a dental bridge. Let’s take a look at their benefits:

-Dental implants successfully serve several functions, including visual. They are designed to mimic your natural teeth while aesthetically preserving a youthful appearance by maintaining your facial profile. This allows you to smile with confidence once again.

-Dental implants help maintain the jawbone structure which deteriorates as healthy teeth are lost. Dental implants also help prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting. This stabilizes your gums as well, and they can continue to support your oral health.

-Because your implants are securely mounted into the jawbone, they provide you with a durable, long-lasting hold. Because of this stability, you can once again eat your favorite, hard to chew foods, including steak. Thanks to dental implants, your food choices are no longer determined by your dental appliance.
