Go ahead, bite into that apple…

What many people don’t realize about dental implants is that you can virtually eat anything that you want. That’s right, no more diet restrictions so that you can enjoy the food you love. With dental implants, you don’t have to worry about your dentures coming loose when you bite into a nice, crunchy apple or when you take a bite of that cheesy pizza. Dental implants acts as real teeth so that you can go about your day to day life without having to be concerned about denture removal.

For those of you who still use dentures, imagine a life where you don’t have to remove your dentures for daily cleaning and eating. Removing your teeth on a daily basis can be a blow to your self-esteem when you look at yourself in the mirror with a toothless grin. With dental implants, you don’t need to remove them at all for your daily oral hygiene routine. Feel free to brush your implants as you would with your real teeth. Just remember to brush twice a day and to floss at least once a day to maintain your oral health. Don’t forget, those adhesive tubes and pastes that you’re used to buying for your dentures to make them stick to your gums? Those are no more. With dental implants, they are surgically embedded into your jaw bone and over the course of a few months of healing, your body naturally fuses the small titanium screws to your jaw bone. This process is also known as osseointegration. Gone are the days of putting your dentures in a cup at night, your implants go right to sleep with you. Our team is dedicated to giving you the best solution for your missing tooth or teeth. With dental implants, it is not only easy and incredibly convenient, they look so naturally beautiful, you’ll swear that you could have been born with your new smile!
