Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide an alternative fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist. The crowns attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!
Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years.
Reasons for dental implants:
What does getting dental implants involve?
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.
