What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant replaces the tooth root and builds a stable foundation for replacement solutions for missing teeth.
Implant dentures provide a high satisfaction of comfort for individuals looking to secure their dentures. Although a conventional denture can still be fabricated, the best treatment plan to maintain bone and facial structure is with an implant retained denture. Implant dentures are the closest option to natural teeth and therefore so many individuals are opting for this treatment plan. Another advantage to placing implants is the maintenance of the surrounding bone. As a long time denture wearer bone loss will continue to occur following the extraction of natural teeth, with implants this bone will be maintained, preserving the facial structure.
