Dental implants are a great option to restore missing teeth, instead of removable dentures or a fixed bridge. There is no better or longer lasting restoration for missing teeth than dental implants.
Dental Implants are basically an artificial tooth root that can be placed in the jawbone. The natural bone fuses with the implant making a strong and sturdy foundation upon which a replacement tooth can be placed.
Unlike the other options dental implants are not anchored to the adjacent teeth, thereby avoiding any unnecessary cutting or shaping of the adjacent teeth. Further implants stimulate the jawbone preventing the bone loss that occurs when the natural teeth are not present.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or when all the teeth are no longer present.
