Do you have one or more missing teeth, or problems with your dentures staying secure? Dental implants may be the answer for you.
When a tooth or teeth are lost, it may impair your ability to speak, chew, and smile, along with causing other teeth to shift and creating bite problems. Dental implants are one way to replace the lost tooth or teeth.
An implant acts as a root in your jaw and the bone actually fuses to it. Then a crown, or a bridge for multiple implants, can be fabricated to fit on top of the implant that will look just like your natural teeth.
The benefits of implants are that adjacent teeth do not need to be involved as with a bridge, implants will keep your jawbone from resorbing as it would if no tooth were present, they will not decay, and they function like natural teeth.
Also, implants can be used to support dentures. The denture can either snap onto the implants and still be removable, or it can be screwed onto the implants and be fixed. This is very helpful for people who have poor retention with their dentures or resorbed ridges.
