Why Are Dental Implants The First Choice to Restore Missing or Damaged Teeth?
THE NEXT BEST THING TO HEALTHY, NATURAL TEETH
Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life.
BUILT TO LAST
Dental implants are a long-term solution. Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to seven years, and with proper care often more than 10 years, but at some point they may need to be replaced. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
ENJOY YOUR LIFE WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT YOUR TEETH
No need to stay home or feel uncomfortable in public, embarrassed because your smile looks different, or worrying that missing teeth will limit your ability to join in the fun or that removable dentures or tooth-supported replacement teeth will loosen or fall out when you talk, eat or laugh. Teeth restored with dental implants are teeth that let you, not your teeth, lead your life.
RETAIN YOUR NATURAL FACE, SHAPE, AND SMILE
A face without teeth can sag and appear sunken and sad. Dental implants allow you to maintain the natural shape of your face and smile.
PROTECT HEALTHY BONE
Leaving empty spaces in your mouth after losing one or more teeth can lead to additional health issues, such as the loss and deterioration of some of your jawbone. When it is not being used to support a natural tooth, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves and stimulates natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth and prevent bone loss.
KEEP YOUR TEETH IN YOUR MOUTH – NOT IN A CUP
Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth. And no more worrying that your dentures might slip or fall out. Brush, floss and care for teeth that have been replaced using dental implants exactly the way you would natural teeth – in your mouth.
Adjusting to removable dentures can mean struggling to pronounce everyday words. Not so with dental implants, which function like natural teeth.
EAT YOUR FAVORITE FOODS
Taste and enjoy the foods you love without hesitation. You can bite naturally, eat virtually anything you want and, unlike removable dentures that can feel uncomfortable, you can experience the full taste of the food you eat with dental implants, too.
Cavities can’t occur in an implant-restored crown, or replacement tooth; however, you will need to visit your dentist as scheduled and clean and care for it and your gums and mouth every day, the same as you would if it were a natural tooth.
KEEP TEETH IN PLACE—SILENTLY
Dentures may slip when you eat, talk, smile, laugh, kiss, yawn or cough, so that you have to “reposition” them back into place in the mouth. Dental implants are fixed in place and fuse naturally with your jawbone, meaning your replacement teeth won’t move, click or shift.
PROTECT YOUR HEALTHY TEETH
Placing a tooth-supported bridge requires grinding away the teeth on one or both sides of the missing tooth or teeth – thereby damaging healthy teeth to restore those that are missing. The modified healthy teeth are attached to, and support, the bridge. Dental implants go in the jawbone, in the spot where your missing tooth root was, without impacting healthy teeth. They also help prevent healthy, adjacent teeth from shifting as they would if an empty space were left for an extended period of time.
MORE PREDICTABLE THAN ANY OTHER RESTORATION METHOD
Dental implant treatment has a track record of reliable, long-term successful outcomes and is often considered “more predictable” than other treatments to repair or replace missing teeth, including bridgework, removable appliances and re-treatment of failing root canal (endodontic) therapy.
EXPERTS IN DENTAL PROCEDURES
Dental implant procedures, including the Four Ever SmileTM system, are Pure Dentals particular area of expertise. Dr. Keith Vibert is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantolologists, and has studied extensively with the most renowned dental implantologists in the world. Dr. Vibert has placed in excess of 15,000 implants, placing an average of 4,000-5,000 implants yearly.
STATE-OF-THE-ART IMPLANT TECHNOLOGY
Pure Dental uses state-of-the art dental implant technology allowing us to deliver the highest quality service to our patients. 3D dental CAT scans and 3D planning software enable us to measure the density and quantity of your jawbone with greater precision than ever before. Pure Dental has several centrifuges to process the growth factors out of the patient’s own blood to reduce the healing process necessary for implant integration. In addition, they use bone morphogenic cells (stem cells) to grow bone in patients that do not have enough bone to place implants.
