Dental implants are replacements for missing teeth… a solution that can help you avoid bridges and/or dentures.
Dentists have been placing dental implants for the past thirty years, and each generation of implants has become stronger, more reliable, and more natural looking.
Dental implants consist of a titanium post which is surgically embedded into the jawbone. A replacement tooth (crown) that looks completely natural is then permanently attached to the post.
Dental implants are a great alternative to bridges, which require the two teeth next to the missing tooth be compromised to form the three-tooth bridge.
Implants are also a great alternative to dentures, because they look, feel, and function better than false teeth. Implants can also be used with dentures to add stability and retention to give you that secure, confident feeling.
