Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implants can also be used to stabilize existing loose dentures to restore full retention in as little as one day! The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that their facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
