Tooth loss is not only embarrassing, but it can severely impact your oral health.

Several situations can result in missing teeth. Whether due to an injury, accident, severe decay, or tooth extraction, it is essential to address a tooth’s absence sooner than later.

With the many technological advances in the field of dentistry, dental implants are innovative tooth replacements that provide a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing permanent solution for people suffering from tooth loss. At Comfort Dental Spa, Dr. Aziza Askari offers dental implants and restorations.

Dental implant treatment provides many benefits to your oral health, including:

Improving Aesthetics

Comfort Dental Group.When teeth are missing for a prolonged period, their absence will cause the jawbone to deteriorate, resulting in a prematurely aged appearance. Dental implants help reestablish the natural stimulation your jaw needs to support your facial features.

During a dental implant procedure, biocompatible posts are placed into your jaw and fused to the bone, creating a strong bond. This process is known as osseointegration and supports full jaw function once again, preserving your natural facial features.

Protecting Your Natural Teeth

Dental implants allow patients to preserve healthy teeth and regain a full smile.

Enhancing Quality of Life

Missing teeth can make eating, speaking, and drinking difficult and uncomfortable. Since dental implant restorations are designed to look and feel like natural teeth, your smile and mouth can function just as it should.

Renewing Self-Confidence

Dental implants significantly improve your appearance, and do so discreetly. Dental implant restorations are crafted to be completely life-like, making them difficult to differentiate from natural teeth. Many of those closest to you will never know you have implant-supported replacements unless you tell them.


Successful, Long-Lasting Results

Dental implants are built to last. Their longevity makes them a popular choice for patients wanting to replace their missing teeth. When correctly placed and cared for, dental implants have an extremely high success rate of 98 percent and can last a lifetime.
