Do you know someone with missing teeth? Perhaps loose fitting dentures? For many of those friend, family members, or neighbors it can be uncomfortable going out in public places. Often times they do not want to smile because they do not like the way it looks when they are missing teeth. Chewing function can be compromised, so going out to eat is often difficult or embarrassing. Luckily there are options to replace those teeth with natural looking replacements, or help secure and stabilize your denture.
Dental implants have come a long way in the last 10 years. In fact, they have become the gold standard to replace missing teeth. They do not decay like natural teeth, and once they are put in they should last a lifetime. The titanium alloy used in implants actually induces your body to grow bone and attach to the implant. Implants stop further bone loss and prevents the appearance of the face collapsing in. For partials and dentures, they can provide extra retention and support without showing metal clasps.
