Applesauce or Apples? Soup or Salad?
Do your dentures decide what you eat? With implants, the choice is yours!
Dental implants replace tooth roots anchored to the bone, like a natural tooth. They replace missing teeth. Implants consist of a titanium screw with a rough surface that serves to replace the root portion of the tooth. Titanium has the amazing capability of fusing well to bone. Bone actually grows around the titanium screw forming a tight connection. This prevents bone loss, which can be a problem with other tooth replacement options.
What else can Dental Implants Do?
- Dental Implants can replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
- Dental Implants can support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
- When natural teeth are missing from the mouth, implants are used to replace the root portion of teeth. Replacement teeth are then fixed onto these new roots to provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
- Dental Implants can support full upper and lower dentures. The dentures are snapped into place allowing solid, comfortable chewing. This means "no more adhesives!"
