Dental implants are recommended to replace missing teeth without compromising the adjacent teeth. An implant is placed in the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. A porcelain tooth will then be attached to the implant and will look and feel like your natural tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to attach a "floating" denture which moves due to excessive bone shrinkage over time. Over time, if teeth are missing, the jawbone shrinks and partial or full dentures become loose or unstable. Dental implants can be used to secure your existing or new denture for confidence and improved function.
