Dental Implants: A Lasting Solution For Missing Teeth
If you’ve lost teeth, it’s probably affecting your life in more ways than you can count. For example, you may have trouble eating foods you enjoy. That’s the bad news. The good news is, you have more and better choices for tooth replacements than ever before!Dr. Scott Krosser on dental implants Read Transcript
Implants are a way to replace teeth independent of the other teeth in people's mouths. Traditionally, we built bridges where we would crown the tooth in front and behind a gap. Many times, we can just place an implant there and we don't have to touch the teeth before, in front of, or behind.
Implants now have an extremely long track record. We have implants that have been in place ... I have cases that were restored my first couple of years out of dental school and they're still in place; they just work really well. You can also replace teeth where there is no way to put in a bridge. Sometimes there's situations where there's nothing behind or in front of where you're missing teeth so you have to put implants in or you have to have some sort of a removable option.
We've actually been doing a lot of cases where patients come in with dentures who are looking for a more permanent option, something that doesn't come in and out of their mouths, and implants are a savior for those patients.
Many of them involve dental implants. Because a dental implant is embedded right into your jawbone and functions much like a natural tooth root, it offers benefits you won’t enjoy with other tooth replacement options, including anything eating with ease and smiling confidently.

Dental Implants Look And Function Like Your Own Teeth
A big benefit of dental implants is their stability. Since an implant is embedded right into your jawbone, it will stay put. Dental implants won’t loosen or move around in your mouth, and you won’t need messy adhesive to keep them in place. They provide a stable foundation for the dental restoration of your choice.
Other benefits include:
- Easy on your other teeth. Unlike a traditional dental bridge, we won’t need to modify your surrounding teeth for dental implants.
- Retain bone density. Because dental implants stimulate your jawbone much like natural tooth roots, they preserve bone structure better than other tooth replacement options.
- Long-lasting. With proper care, dental implants should last a lifetime.
