Dental implants have dramatically improved the lives of many people, allowing dentists to replace teeth in the most realistic manner possible.
A dental implant is like a “root replacement” that can go into the bone and be a support for different types of restorations. If you are missing one tooth, a dental implant can be used to support a crown and act like a new tooth in that area- you will be able to chew as normal and the crown will look realistically like a tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple teeth. Sometimes there will be multiple individual implants with individual crowns like individual teeth. Sometimes a denture or a partial will snap onto implants for greater support, or sometimes a denture can be screwed into implants and not be removable.
If you are interested in how implants can improve your life, please schedule a consultation.
