What are Dental Implants?
Many years ago, the only solution for missing teeth were traditional dentures. Over the years, thanks in part to the advancements in dental technology as well as the knowledge of dentists, there are a number of tooth replacement options available. One that we often recommend is dental implants. A dental implant is used when the tooth structure as well as the tooth root is missing. The process involves placing an artificial tooth root in the jawbone and, after healing time, a new tooth structure is placed to complete the treatment. We offer a number of different implant options based on your needs.
Benefits of Dental Implants
One of the biggest benefits of dental implants is that they blend in seamlessly with the natural teeth. Dental implants function much in the same way as natural teeth, so patients are able to chew easily and enjoy their favorite foods. They are also a permanent solution and eliminate the worry of teeth falling out.
