Implants Act Like Your Natural Teeth

Replacing a single missing tooth can be most authentically accomplished with a single dental implant. The post of the implant mimics the root of your tooth while the dental crown looks and functions just like your natural tooth, requiring no additional maintenance.

Dental Implants vs Dentures

Dental implants with Dr. Darryl Field offer added benefits as a missing teeth solution.

Although dental implants and traditional dentures both provide patients with missing teeth solutions, dentures have different features that can be improved by the support of teeth implants.



  • Dentures are made with plastics, acrylic and metals that can irritate the gum line of some patients.
  • Dentures and dental implants also differ in terms of stability. Dentures function on the gum line and almost always slip and click at some point, making eating and talking uncomfortable.
  • Dentures are designed to replace a lot of missing teeth.
  • Dentures do not typically last as long as dental implants. Dentures wear down and need to be replaced often.
  • Dentures rest on the gums and do not stimulate the jaw bone, which leads to deterioration.

Dental Implants

  • Dental implants are made from titanium, which the body easily accepts. It is also a decay resistant material. When it comes to finding comfortable missing teeth solutions, dental implants make sense.
  • Dental implants are installed in the jaw bone, where they mimic real teeth roots to provide a permanent, dependable smile that stays put.
  • Dental implants can replace one or 15 missing teeth
  • Dental implants, with proper care, can last for decades.
  • Dental Implants can prevent bone loss.
  • Dental implants protect bone because they are placed in the jaw where they provide daily stimulation to keep it healthy.
