Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Implants and their attached crowns closely mimic the look and function of real teeth. They can make an attractive alternative to dentures and bridges.
Dental implants can replace one or several missing teeth, in some cases, an entire set of artificial teeth can be carried on dental implants.
In some cases, instead of an artificial tooth, an implant can be fitted with special clips or attachment to hold a denture. This will minimize movement of dentures, making it easier to speak and chew foods you couldn’t eat before, without worrying about the denture becoming loose or falling out of your mouth.
