Dental implants use state-of-the-art technology to replace missing teeth with an artificial “root” and tooth. For people who have otherwise strong teeth, having a tooth implant is an excellent alternative to having a bridge done.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Someone who has lost teeth can regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence — bite into that apple and chew steak, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants, or tooth implants, represent one of the most important advances in modern dentistry. They offer patients with missing or severely damaged teeth an opportunity to restore their fully functional bite. The most difficult aspect of tooth loss or extreme tooth damage is that it can significantly change the function of the mouth as well as the overall appearance of the facial structures. Even the loss of a few teeth can cause substantial sagging and give the appearance of advanced age.
