DENTAL IMPLANTS utilize titanium anchors that are fused with the jawbone replicating the natural root structure of a tooth. Dental implants are more secure and more comfortable than removable dentures while looking and feeling like real teeth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place. To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. The first step in the dental implant process is the development of a personalized treatment plan. The plan addresses your specific needs and it is prepared by a dentist who is specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry.
You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
