girl-eating-apple-682x1024Dental Implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once there are secured in place, they allow dentists to mount replacement teeth on top of them. This procedures offers a more secure form and alternative to dentures.

How do Dental Implants work?

Due to the fact that they are fused to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.  This prevents the movement of the implants. Unlike removable dentures, they help to make sure your teeth are securely on. One great advantage to implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement teeth in place.

In order to receive implants, you must go through a thorough exam so that your dentist may be able to evaluate the health and structure of your teeth. This exam determines whether or not you are suited for dental implants.
