Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implants can be used to support crowns, bridges, and help to stabilize partial and full dentures from moving. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
