Implant therapies have become far more common over the last ten to twenty years and are now a fantastic option for replacing missing teeth. Additionally, their costs have come down substantially, and many people are opting for implants as they are very cost-effective and long-lasting.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
We would best describe a dental implant is an artificial tooth surgically placed within the jawbone. An implant completely restores any missing tooth because of this placement. This permanence is enhanced through a process called osseointegration, where your implant fuses into the bone.
We work very closely with the specialists in town (oral surgeons and periodontists) who place the implants to our joint design, and we then place the implant crowns once the healing period has occurred.
Discover Implant-Supported Dentures
For our patients using partial and complete dentures, dental implants can improve your existing appliances. Instead of resting on your gums held in place by adhesive, dental supported implants stay firmly in place. These attachments can even support whole-mouth restorations.
