What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants provide a solution to the long-time problem of ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures. A dental implant is a small dental " post" or "screw" that is placed in the jawbone as an artificial substitution for a natural tooth root. This provides a strong foundation to support or secure a partial or full denture.
Dental implants are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth, and the optimal way to restore your natural smile. They have a long clinical history and an excellent success rate. Dental implants can be used to replace single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
Why are Dental Implants a Good Choice?
Dentures secured on dental implants are more stable and feel more real than conventional dentures. When dentures are secured and more stable in the mouth a greater variety of foods can be chewed effectively without dislodging the dentures. Often harder and more nutritious foods can now be introduced into your diet, since chewing them effectively is no longer an issue. Many patients who have chosen implant secured dentures are pleased and comfortable for the first time since they lost their natural teeth.
