The Best Option for Replacing Missing Teeth!


What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

In just about every way, implants are superior to full or partial dentures and bridges and the obvious choice for missing tooth replacement.

Dental implants are significantly stronger than bridges or dentures and provide a sturdy, permanent solution to single or multiple missing teeth. Implants are considered an excellent option for all types of tooth replacement and their long-term success rates are both highly predictable and expected. Instant Implants can replace any number of teeth, and in certain cases, your missing teeth can be replaced in a single appointment.

Dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support implants. Thus, more of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since Instant Implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. In addition, no one will ever know that you have replacement teeth.

Dental Implants are also used to securely attach full dentures directly to the jaw, eliminating the need for adhesives that often fail, causing dentures to loosen. Implant-supported dentures can be worn by anyone who doesn't have any teeth in their jaw (a current denture wearer), but has enough bone in their jaw to support dental implants. With Instant Implant supported dentures, you’ll never have to think about what to eat, when to smile or laugh, or if your dentures may come loose.

Can you really replace that many teeth and transform my smile?

Absolutely! ... It may sound too good to be true, but Dr. Gelbart's knowledge and implementation of cutting-edge advances in implant technology has made dental implants the norm in a surprising number of instances. You owe it to yourself to let Dr. Gelbart introduce you to the simplicity of life-changing dental implants -
Instant Implants at the Independence Dental Implant Center!
