If you are missing one or more teeth for any reason, you’ll want tooth replacements that look, feel, and function like real teeth. While dentures and bridges may work for some, you may want to consider dental implants as a better alternative. Unlike dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently fixed in your mouth.
You are a good candidate for implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues. When the dental implant is inserted into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.
With dental implants, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as your original teeth.
