conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing
For some people,
dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically
placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the
jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a
stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your
jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also
find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental
implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A
thorough evaluation by the dentist will help determine whether you are a good
candidate for dental implants.
