What are Dental Implants?
Do you struggle with uncomfortable full or partial dentures? Dental implants are a permanent and durable restorative solution that can help you reclaim your confident, healthy smile.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that serve as replacements for the root portions of missing natural teeth. Because of the biocompatible properties of titanium, implants fuse with the surrounding bone to become solid anchors for the crowns, bridges,
or dentures that go on top of them. Implants are adaptable to a variety of needs, implants can be used in the following clinical situations:
- Single tooth replacement
- Multiple tooth replacement
- Edentulous cases – no teeth
- To stabilize dentures and bridges
Why Dental Implants?
Implants are a great alternative to replacing one or more missing teeth without having to involve adjacent teeth. For patients that have had problems with loose or ill-fitting dentures, implants can also be used to hold dentures in place. They have become very popular as a dental treatment and have had much success. The placement of an implant in the jaw is always performed by the appropriate specialist.
