Dental implants are a life-changing and lasting solution for missing teeth. The greatest benefit of dental implants is that they look and feel like natural teeth. Unlike other tooth-replacement procedures, implants allow you to eat, talk and laugh with confidence. Not only do they replace the missing teeth, but the dental implants also preserve the supporting bone, making them the preferred choice over fixed bridges or removable dentures.

Implants preserve the integrity of the facial structure by preventing the bone resorption that would normally occur with the loss of teeth. This is particularly important when all of the teeth are missing, as the lower one-third of the face would collapse if implants were not placed to help preserve the bone!

Dental Implants can be like your third set of teeth. Best of all, they never get decay or need a root canal! So, whether to replace one missing tooth or to stabilize a loose partial or complete denture, dental implants are the strongest and the healthiest way to replace missing teeth. Most of all, dental implants can help stop bone atrophy, facial collapse and premature aging.


What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a permanent, surgical solution to replace missing teeth. Unlike dental bridges and dentures, a dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone to provide a strong, secure foundation for your missing tooth.

Why should i choose dental implants as a tooth replacement?

Dental implants offer several advantages over other forms of tooth replacement. In addition to being permanent, dental implants do not require support from adjacent teeth, thus minimizing the impact to your natural, surrounding teeth. Dental implants also serve to strengthen your jawbone, preventing issues such as jaw collapse that can accompany dentures.

Why should i replace a missing tooth?

Missing teeth are both a functional and aesthetic issue. Missing teeth may cause an awkward looking smile, but the larger issue is what happens to the strength of your jaw and bite when a missing tooth is not replaced. When you are missing a tooth, adjacent teeth will eventually slide into its place, altering the strength and alignment of your bite. This can lead to uneven tooth wear and more serious issues such as jaw collapse.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are a good solution for most people. Ideal candidates should be in good general health, have sufficient jawbone density, and be prepared for the dental implant process, which can take several months to complete. If you do not have sufficient jawbone density, Dr. Kostirko can discuss bone grafting or alternative types of implants that may better meet your needs.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants are a safe and effective way to replace missing teeth. The surgical procedure has general risks such as infection and excessive bleeding, and the implant itself may be rejected by your body. These instances are rare, and great care is taken in the placement of your implant to help ensure against these complications. Carefully following all of Dr. Kostirko's post-implant advice will further help reduce any risks associated with this common procedure.
