What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a thin post. This post is implanted in your jaw, bonds with your jawbone, and creates a stable foundation for a natural-looking tooth restoration.
Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement because they mimic your natural teeth. This includes look, feel, and care. In other words, you restoration looks completely natural, feels natural, and requires no special maintenance other than good oral hygiene, twice-yearly dental exams, and regular dental cleanings—no different from your natural teeth.
Dental Implants for Full Tooth Loss
If you have multiple missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge is a great option, but if you’re missing all your teeth, implant-supported dentures are simply the best option around.
Implant-supported dentures mean that an entire denture can be supported using only a few dental implant posts. Dental implant posts are just that sturdy!
Implant-supported dentures mean no adhesives, no realigns, no slippage, and no diminished bone loss in the jaw (when teeth are missing, jawbones shrink). Dental implants are so much like natural tooth roots, your jaw remains viable and present.
