Optimum tooth replacement is achieved with implants. Implants are root replacements. Once implanted into your jaw, the bone and the implant body integrate into one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor on which a tooth may be fabricated. Implant bodies are also employed as retention abutments used in retaining full or partial dentures.
In studies, dental implants are shown to preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss. Eating, speech and laughter can now be performed with confidence. Patients feel better and gain a new found zest for life, as implants are the closest thing to natural teeth. Historically, dental implants have a high clinical success rate. Patients who have opted for dental implants often remark how similar the implant feels to their own natural teeth. The patient can enjoy new found confidence.
