When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants have emerged as the unrivaled choice, offering a blend of durability, functionality, and aesthetic appeal that other tooth replacement options simply cannot match. At Tolland Hill Family Dental, we understand the importance of a confident smile and robust oral health. This is why we recommend dental implants as the gold standard for patients seeking to restore their smiles.

Natural Look and Feel

One of the most significant advantages of dental implants is their natural appearance and feel. Implants are designed to mimic the structure of natural teeth, with a titanium post anchoring into the jawbone, just like a tooth root. This provides a stable foundation for the artificial tooth or crown that sits above the gum line. Patients often report that implants feel just like their natural teeth, both in comfort and function.

Longevity and Durability

Dental implants are renowned for their durability. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime, a feature that sets them apart from other tooth replacement options like dentures or bridges, which typically require replacement every 5 to 10 years. The titanium used in implants is biocompatible, meaning it integrates seamlessly with the jawbone, strengthening the bond over time and reducing the likelihood of replacement.

Improved Oral Health

Unlike bridges, dental implants do not require altering adjacent teeth, which helps preserve more of your natural tooth structure. Additionally, the presence of an implant in the jawbone helps prevent bone deterioration, a common issue following tooth loss. This preservation of bone structure not only maintains facial integrity but also promotes overall oral health.

Enhanced Functionality

Dental implants restore full chewing power, allowing patients to enjoy their favorite foods without restriction. Other tooth replacement options can limit the ability to chew certain foods, but implants function just like natural teeth. This means you can bite naturally, eat virtually anything, and speak without worry.

Convenience and Ease of Care

Implants do not require the special care that dentures demand. There are no adhesives, special cleaning solutions, or the inconvenience of removing them at night. The care routine for dental implants is the same as for natural teeth – regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.

High Success Rate

Dental implants boast a high success rate, reported to be around 95-98%. This high success rate, combined with the functional and aesthetic benefits they provide, makes them a highly reliable option for tooth replacement.

Psychological and Social Benefits

Last but not least, dental implants can significantly improve the quality of life. Missing teeth can lead to self-consciousness and reluctance to smile or engage socially. Implants restore the natural look of your smile, boosting confidence and social interaction.

What Our Patients Say

Never had I had so much attention paid to my whole mouth health. Performed mouth cancer checks and measured gum gaps (didn't know this was a thing). A lot of time with doctor, not just the hygienist. Explained everything they were doing and why.
Daniel Keener
The team at this office was very kind, understanding, patient and persistent in working with my child. She is highly anxious at the dentist and they took their time to help her through the experience. Would highly recommend them to others!
