Dental implants, also known as implant retained dentures, are artificial tooth roots that are embedded on each side of the jaw. These implanted “roots” become fused to the jaw bone which creates a stable foundation for a denture to sit on top of. Traditional dentures can make it difficult to speak or move around while eating, implants can stop these disturbances. Dental implants are a great option as long as you have good oral hygiene and enough jaw bone left for the roots to sit on top of and fuse with.
There are many benefits to having dental implants, as listed above these implants can secure a denture better than anything else. They can also help you maintain your jaw bone, the bone deteriorates when teeth are missing so getting an implant will ensure the bone does not start to deteriorate. Implants also help give structure to the face since the face can droop when teeth are missing. If you want to maintain good oral health even though you have missing teeth implants might be the solution for you.
