Implants and Implant-Retained Dentures

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. High-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth; providing you confidence that affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.

Dental implants can also be used to retain, or support a denture. The solid support and permanent retention of an implant retained denture provides complete peace of mind to the denture wearer.
