Dental implants are artificial roots that are placed in your jaw to support a bridge, denture or a replacement tooth. They are a great option for people who have lost their teeth due to an injury, periodontal disease, infection or decay. With implants, patients don’t experience the moving, slipping, and irritation that accompany dentures. Implants are made of medical grade titanium that is compatible with your jaw bone. They can support crowns or bridges that feel, look and function just like natural teeth. Implants can also be used to stabilize and prevent dentures from moving and falling out. The dentist will create a treatment plan specifically for you. Once the treatment is complete, the dentist will work closely with you to help you to maintain your implants and keep them healthy.
