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.
