Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant bonds to the jaw bone and becomes the base for the replacement tooth. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.
Clinical studies have proven that implants impart the greatest comfort and quality of life, as the method to replace lost teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth, therefore your ability to eat and speak are not affected. Implants help to prevent bone loss in the jaw and no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
Dental Implants can last a lifetime depending on the care you put into keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
