What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

If you’re missing one or more of your teeth and are looking for a hassle-free solution to restore your smile, High Street Dentistry is here to help. We are pleased to offer dental implants, today’s gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Our implant restorations are crafted with exceptional precision, leaving you with superior comfort, function, and aesthetics!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small screw-like titanium posts we surgically place into your jawbone to replace your missing tooth roots. They provide an incredibly stable foundation to support implant restorations, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. 

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Leaving a gap in your smile can pose a threat to your oral health. The bone will begin to deteriorate, leading to bone loss and changes in your facial structure. The surrounding teeth may shift toward the gap, leading to crooked teeth, problems with the bite, and an elevated risk of gum disease, tooth decay, uneven tooth wear, and even jaw pain. Dental implants act like your natural tooth roots, stimulating the jaw bone, preventing bone loss, and lowering the risk of complications associated with tooth loss. 

Dental implants are today’s leading tooth replacement option, with results second only to healthy, natural teeth. You’ll enjoy your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile with confidence once again. Dental implants are highly predictable, with an over 95 percent success rate. With meticulous oral hygiene practices and regular visits to High Street Dentistry, your new implant restorations can last a lifetime!

What Is the Dental Implant Procedure?

We will start with surgically placing your dental implant into your jawbone. Over the next few months, the implant will integrate with your jawbone, providing a stable foundation to support one or more replacement teeth. We will craft your implant restorations to your smile’s specifications, leaving you with seamless results. 

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Candidates for implant dentistry are typically in good oral and overall health, free of periodontal disease, and willing to commit to meticulous oral hygiene practices to ensure the success of the implant procedure. They must also have good bone density in the jawbone to support the implant. If you have bone loss, a bone graft can help rebuild the bone and allow you to enjoy the benefits of dental implants.
