Dental implants offer a permanent solution for replacing your natural teeth. They are in the place of missing teeth or to secure bridges, anchor dentures, and overdentures. The installation of a titanium post into the jawbone acts as a root for a prosthetic tooth to be inserted. The prosthetic tooth is usually a crown that, with modern manufacturing techniques, looks and feels very similar to a natural tooth.
There are many benefits to choosing dental implants. Not only can dental implants improve the beauty of your smile, but they can also restore the function. Because implants permanently bond with your jawbone they offer a much more natural solution than dentures, bridges, or other restorations. There are many other advantages to dental implants, including:
Dental implants can be an excellent addition to your current dentures if they do not fit correctly or if you find that they are just too difficult to wear. Dental implants can be used as an anchor that holds the dentures in place and provides additional support.
