Dental implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically placed into the jawbone, beneath the gums, providing support for an artificial tooth, or artificial teeth. With dental implants, dentures and bridges won’t shift around or slip out of your mouth, making it highly beneficial when talking and eating. This secure fit helps dentures, bridges and individual crowns feel more natural and comfortable, as opposed to conventional dentures and bridges.
For some people, conventional bridges and dentures are an inconvenience to their lifestyle, as they have to interact with people all the time, and might be embarrassed by dentures or bridges that shift around whenever they speak.
To receive dental implants, you will need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You should also be committed to maintaining meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits, in order to ensure the long-term success of dental implants.
