Dental Implants are permanent and effective ways to fill gaps in your smile caused by missing teeth. Implants preserve your existing unaffected teeth, while filling in the gaps left by the missing teeth due to disease or accident. If you hide your smile because of missing teeth, are dissatisfied with your current removable or partial dentures, or want to keep your other teeth intact, then dental implants are the best option for you.
Many people get dental implants to replace single teeth or a few teeth that are missing, or to support a full set of dentures. The implants themselves are posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, they replace the root of the missing tooth/teeth. More than 5 million implants are placed by dentists each year in the United States. Dental implants offer secure bridges or single teeth that wont slip or shift while eating or talking, the fit is secure so your other teeth will be supported, they keep the jawbone from shrinking and can last a lifetime with good care.
