What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth and usually can be implanted in just one visit to your dentist’s office. They offer a natural look and can last the rest of your life with proper care. Dental implants can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth as a result of natural loss or tooth extractions and provide a great alternative to bridges and dentures.
Dental implants bond with the bone structure of your jaw and act as substitute roots. They look, feel, and function exactly like your natural teeth.
When are Dental Implants Used?
Dental implants can be used during a few different situations. Here are some of the more common applications:
- Replacement of one or more missing teeth
- Anchoring removable dental work such as partial and full dentures
- Anchoring non-removable dental work such as a bridge
How do You Know if Dental Implants are Right for You?
The only way you can find the answer to this question is to visit your dentist and have an evaluation performed. Your dentist will examine your gums, teeth, and supporting structure and create an individualized treatment plan. Depending on the amount of bone structure available, your dentist may recommend a bone graft.
