Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants permanently replace missing teeth. Implants consist of titanium posts, topped with artificial restorations. The posts are surgically placed in the jawbone to function as a tooth "root.” The posts extend from the jawbone through the gums, and are topped with restorations, such as crowns or bridges, that resemble natural teeth both in appearance and function. Implants can also be used to secure loose dentures. Dentures placed on the lower jaw often move around and are uncomfortable. Placing just 2 to 4 implants, will allow the denture to literally be snap into place. This will allow you to chew much better, and never have to worry about the denture moving or falling out at an inopportune time.
