Dental implant technology includes remarkable procedures that can replace missing teeth with the look and feel of your own natural teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that replaces the original tooth root that may have been damaged or lost to various dental conditions. Because the implant is permanently anchored to the jaw, and the replacement tooth or bridge is permanently attached to the implant, the new tooth or bridge does not rely on neighboring teeth for support. It is just like having your own tooth back.
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to rid yourself of your partial or denture, you owe it to yourself to learn more about dental implants. With modern implant technology almost anyone who is missing a tooth/teeth or is wearing removable teeth (dentures) is a candidate for dental implants. Like most medical procedures, candidates should be in good health, but we find that we are able to help almost everyone.
