Dental implants, also known as implant retained dentures, are artificial tooth roots that are embedded on each side of the jaw. If you need dentures, but are concerned that they will move around when eating or make it difficult to speak, then dental implants may just be the right choice for you. Since the roots of the implant eventually become fused to the jaw bone, they create a stable foundation for a denture to sit on top of.
Dental implants are definitely worth it and 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. If you need a single tooth, just few, or multiple teeth replaced, this type of denture might be the one to work best for you. After you have the implants embedded in your jaw, it’s very important to maintain good oral hygiene and take care of your new teeth. This will help the dentures to last a lifetime, or decades at the least. They also help keep your mouth healthy and minimize the risk of oral health problems down the road.
