Dental implants are an excellent solution for people who are missing one or more teeth. They are a permanent, long-term option for replacing missing teeth and restoring the function and appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are essentially small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The posts serve as a replacement for the missing tooth root and provide a strong foundation for a replacement tooth or bridge. Once the implants are placed, they fuse with the jawbone over time, creating a secure and stable base for the replacement teeth.
Dental implants have several advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike dentures, which can slip or move, dental implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, which means that they feel and function just like natural teeth. They also help to preserve the integrity of the jawbone by providing stimulation that would normally be provided by a natural tooth root.
Another advantage of dental implants is that they can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Whether you are missing a single tooth or a whole set of teeth, dental implants can be customized to meet your specific needs.
