What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a surgically placed insert that are connected to the jawbone to anchor a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are a good solution for restoring chewing ability, preserving bone structure and maintaining overall oral health. Dental implants are a permanent, natural, low-maintenance solution to replacing one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth.
Dental implants are a great alternative to extracting teeth, which can affect chewing ability and may cause teeth to shift or in some cases to lose bone. Implants can also help support dentures, partials, as well as provide a fixed solution to having a removable partial or complete denture replacement. They are an excellent long-term option for restoring your natural smile.
