When to get dental implants

Considering dental implants? Now may be the right time to see if you qualify. Discover if implants could be the right solution for you with guidance from our implant experts.

Signs it may be time for dental implants

If you’re ready to get back to loving how you look and feel, a customized dental implant treatment plan can restore your smile and confidence. Do these signs look familiar to you? If so, it’s time to take the next step.

Missing teeth

Dental implants can replace one tooth or multiple teeth. Each surgically placed implant will be nearly as strong and durable as your natural teeth. Plus, they are visually indistinguishable so you can eat and talk confidently again.

Sunken facial appearance

When you lose your teeth, your jawbone can shrink and lose its mass due to lack of stimulation. Over time, this bone loss can lead to changes in your facial structure and may cause you to look older than you are. Implants can prevent this from happening and help you see that familiar face in the mirror again.

Want a denture alternative

Maybe you’re dealing with a loose denture or bridge. Or you’re tired of using denture adhesives. Dental implants are a great alternative to conventional dentures because they are permanently part of your mouth. Take a step up and explore our secure-fitting implant denture—or restore your entire smile with full mouth implants.
