Implants are much, much stronger.

Anchoring Your Implants

The anchors used to secure implants in place are made of titanium, which does not interact with the body’s tissues, so it won’t corrode or wear away over time. This makes the implant permanent, barring trauma that damages it. The anchor is attached to your jaw to form a super-strong support structure that won’t move, preserving your smile in its current natural appearance.

The anchors need to be able to attach to the jaw, and they need gum tissue to support them. That’s why patients who have experienced a large amount of bone or gum tissue loss may need additional tissue grafts before they will be ready for dental implants.

Sparkling White Replacement Teeth

The anchors attach to the replacement teeth themselves, which are modeled as closely as possible after your original smile. The implants will be made to fit your mouth, using your dental records and other information about the size and shape of your jaw. This and the strong infrastructure created by the anchors work together to support your new smile, which will be made of porcelain replacement teeth designed to look and work like the teeth you are used to. This makes your new implants
