Removeable dentures or conventional bridges may not be your only option when replacing missing teeth. Dental implants have proven to be so reliable and predictable that they have become the most preferred method of tooth replacement. The implants are placed under the gum and in the jawbone. They are then fused to the bone and become a support for as few as one tooth or as many as an entire arch.
The comfort, appearance and durability of completed implant cases are truly amazing. Patients who previously had difficulty eating and speaking as well as poor esthetics are testimony to this wonderful advancement in dentistry. You are a good candidate for dental implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good and healthy condition, and healthy oral tissues.
