What Are Dental Enhancements?
Dental enhancements are custom-fabricated devices that improve the function of your smile. Some enhancements can also help protect your smile.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implant restorations are artificial teeth that are attached to artificial tooth roots that act as a replacement for your natural tooth roots. The implant itself is a small metal post that's surgically placed into the gum and acts as an anchor to hold the artificial tooth in place.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Implants preserve bone, protect your healthy teeth, and allow you to speak and eat normally. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Implants can also be used to support bridges and dentures.
What Are the Main Benefits of Dental Implants Over Dentures?
The main benefit that dental implants provide over dentures is that they do not slip or shift. This makes it easier to eat and speak, and to care for your implants.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that 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, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
