Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances. Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist – a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile! Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
What are dental implants?
They are replacement tooth roots made out of titanium that are placed into the jawbone. The process of receiving implants is generally comfortable and the implants literally become attached to the jawbone with a great deal of retention. In most cases, they are as comfortable and solid as your own teeth.
