Why Dental Implants?

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the most effective method of replacing missing teeth and stabilizing loose dentures. If you dread the idea of attempting to speak or eat while your dentures slip and slide around or despise the idea of eating nothing but soft foods for the rest of your life, then dental implants may well be your answer.

Even a single missing tooth can make getting dental implants extremely important. Lost teeth can negatively impact your confidence and appearance, but that’s not the only reason for concern. A single missing tooth threatens all the teeth around it.

 

Missing teeth impact everything!

Dental implants are the most effective method of replacing missing teeth and stabilizing loose dentures. If you dread the idea of attempting to speak or eat while your dentures slip and slide around or despise the idea of eating nothing but soft foods for the rest of your life, then dental implants may well be your answer.

Even a single missing tooth can make getting dental implants extremely important. Lost teeth can negatively impact your confidence and appearance, but that’s not the only reason for concern. A single missing tooth threatens all the teeth around it.

 

Dental implants provide significant advantages over dentures and bridges, including:

  • Preventative. They can prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often occurs with bridgework and dentures.
  • Cost Effective. Since one tooth is replaced instead of the several necessary to install a bridge, dental implants can actually cost less than traditional bridgework.
  • Conservative. Unlike traditional bridges, adjacent teeth are not needed to support the implant. This means that the adjacent teeth do not have to be ground down to support crowns like they do for conventional bridges. Your own natural teeth are not compromised.
  • Comfortable. Dental implants function very similar to your natural teeth and are comfortable and stable. This eliminates some of the key problems of dentures including poor fit, gum irritation and pain from nerve compression.
  • Reliable. Dental implants are highly predictable – there are no embarrassing prosthetics that slip or cause speech impediments.
  • Cosmetically Aesthetic. Implant supported crowns look and feel like your own natural teeth.
  • Preservative. Missing teeth cause bone shrinkage, which can result in a receding jaw line and change in facial structure. Dental implants help prevent deterioration of the jawbone so the patient’s face retains its natural shape and appearance.

Customers Say

Dr. Knox was professional, compassionate, and skilled. His assistant talked me through everything. I had a wisdom tooth removed and a cavity filled. I have made plans to have a dental implant with Dr. Knox as well. They are very fairly priced.

The staff is very friendly and my dentist is kind and patient man. Dr Bohle worked on my implant and the experience was pleasant. He was very informative and was talked me through everything that would go on. If you need dental work done I could not recommend a better place.

There are certain things in life that you don't like, but you have to do it anyway. Like eat liver when your mom serves it, like go to work every morning, and go to the dentist twice a year for a checkup. If you do, your teeth will last you a lifetime. But if you don't, you'll end up with Dentures or implants. Natural teeth are a lot cheaper. Give this place a chance I think you'll be happy with results.

Dr. Bennet Parks is a amazing The team is excellent! I'm very happy to work with such great people. I've had my teeth cleaned, and dental implants! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
