Innovation and technology have ushered in a new age in dentistry; dental implants. No longer are ill-fitting dentures or wire-clasp partials the only recourse to replace missing teeth.
Implants are clinically-pure titanium “artificial roots”, implanted directly into the jaw just like natural teeth are positioned in the jaw. Then, a wonderful thing happens: the bone will actually “grow to” the titanium, attaching itself in a process called osseointegration. Once osseointegration is complete, the implant is ready for it’s new crown, bridge, or overdenture. It is the closest to “original equipment” that has ever been achieved in dentistry. And current dental research indicates that implants are the longest lasting restoration in dentistry!
Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or totally missing teeth! They can keep you from having to alter adjacent teeth with crowns or bridges just to replace your missing tooth. Think “strong” and “long lasting” with dental implants.
