During the last 20 years, dental implants have become a desirable alternative to other methods of replacing missing teeth. Excellent success rates and a range of available options give dentists a variety of new ways to treat and replace lost teeth.
Implants replace ill-fitting dentures or missing teeth and they feel and look like your natural teeth. The benefits of dental implants are numerous; improved appearance, the ability to eat your favorite foods, the ability to maintain healthy adjacent teeth and your experience of renewed confidence.
Your dentist can evaluate your case and tell you if you are a candidate for dental implants. Structurally, a dental implant is a titanium-based cylinder that replaces the missing tooth root. After a period of time, other parts are placed on the implant to enable your dentist to eventually place a crown (cap) on the implant. Implants can also be used to support full or partial dentures, dramatically improving denture retention and stability.
