What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are today’s best option for people who have experienced tooth loss. They are the closest thing to natural teeth that modern dental technology has to offer. It’s a fabulous alternative to dentures as these are permanent “teeth” that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Implants provide amazing results for full mouth restorations or for individuals who have experienced loss of one or several teeth due to accident or trauma.
Dental Implants are small anchoring devices that are implanted into the jaw — directly into the bone. For people who wish to be free from wearing dentures or partials, artificial teeth are attached to the implanted devices creating what looks and feels like a complete set of natural teeth. People who select this option often state that freedom from dentures makes them feel younger and more attractive in general! Individuals wishing to keep their dentures find that implants act as stabilizing devices that add comfort and security by keeping their dentures from slipping. This not only eliminates embarrassment when dining in public, but adds to a feeling of security when the dentures are in place. People who have had dental implants report feeling more “like they used to feel” before they lost their teeth. The cosmetic benefits and the overall feeling of a restored youthful smile can be remarkable!
