Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow one of our dentists to mount replacement teeth onto them which can improve not only your appearance, but the functionality of our bite.
Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth which is an important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
