If you have lost most or all of your teeth, a modern dental solution supported by dental implants is the best alternative to ill-fitting dentures.
Depending on your specific dental situation, as few as two to four dental implants can make a big difference in stabilizing your denture and giving you a full set of fixed teeth.
Dental implants give your new restoration the much-needed stability in your jawbone that has been missing during all your years of denture wearing.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant functions as the root of a new tooth. Only a few millimeters long and carefully engineered, it is placed in your jawbone by your dental provider and serves as the foundation for your new tooth.
New teeth from day one Depending on your individual situation, your dentist might be able to connect a temporary restoration to your new dental implants. In this case, you can go back to living a normal life right after surgery. Later, after the implants have fully healed, you return to your dentist and begin work on your more long term restoration.
This restoration may be either fixed to the dental implants for ultimate stability or in some instances stabilized but still removable allowing easier oral hygiene access.
Important safety information Treatment with dental implants is a surgical procedure and requires prior evaluation by your dentist to make sure your dental and general health permits dental implant treatment.Find out more.
