What Are Dental Implants
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. Dental implants are becoming a more modern tooth replacement solution than dentures or bridges. They’re designed in a way that, over time, actually integrates with the bone of the jaw. This forms a strong, durable, long-term anchor for your new teeth while keeping the bone itself from deteriorating. It also ensures there’s no slippage or other uncomfortable movement that can sometimes happen with dentures.
One of the things people love most about dental implants is how real they look and feel. Because the connection with the jawbone is so strong, they actually become a part of your mouth, functioning like natural teeth. Imagine waking up and smiling in the mirror, chewing your favorite foods again and laughing out loud with friends, all without the daily chore of dentures.
With dental implants, it will be as if you’ve had these teeth all your life. And that can give you more time to get back to all the little things you’ve been missing.
