With so many options in Cosmetic Dentistry it’s hard to determine which of the many treatment options is best for replacing missing teeth. How do you replace missing natural teeth? There are so many dental care options to choose from: dental bridges, dental crowns, removable dentures, veneers, the list goes on and on. What exactly are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are designed to replace missing permanent teeth and act as a tooth root to support the various cosmetic dentistry options available. Without a tooth root, crowns, bridges and veneers can shift and slide in the mouth, causing issues with speech and eating. Dental Implants are metal bars that are implanted directly into your jaw bone structure. The implanted metal bars protrude through the gum tissue, allowing for an artificial tooth to be screwed directly to the bar, either as a single tooth, or in a grouping of, such as a bridge or denture; other dental prosthetics can use the implants for stabilization.
