Dental implants are the best way we have found so far to replace missing teeth. Implants are made of 2 parts: A titanium root replacement is placed underneath your gums and then a porcelain crown is above your gums and connected directly to the root. Implants are designed to mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Unlike a bridge or partial, special home care is not required and the neighboring teeth are not affected
Dental implants can also be used to help support and anchor loose dentures. Traditional dentures are help in by suction and supported by the gums. Dental implants can help improve chewing and retention of dentures by connecting them to a patient’s jaw bone.
