If you are considering dental implants, consider the following. Dental Implants can be used to replace missing teeth. They have been used very successfully now for the past 30 years and dentistry has come to rely on them for solving problems that were formerly insolvable.
Tooth loss probably effects us more today in our job and social lives than ever before. Now, thanks to modern dental implant technology, dentists can offer real answers to these real problems.
Missing teeth, medically known as edentulism, keeps many people from “feeling their best”. Edentulism not only effects your self confidence, but also has a dramatic impact on the quality of your life.
There are basically two types of implants. Those that sit on top of the jaw bone, but under the gums, and those that fit into the jawbone similar to the root of a natural tooth. Each type offers solid, non-mobile support for replacement teeth which act and feel like natural teeth.
The actual implant procedure involves the surgical placement of the implant or implants, a healing period and implant restoration to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
There are different types of implants that you can choose from. Since we do not have the time or space to cover all of the details, we are going to suggest that you do some further reading here.
