Sometimes, even when you try your hardest to keep up with a great dental hygiene routine and go to the dentist regularly, teeth need to be replaced. It is natural as we age and can be due to injuries or hereditary reasons. Dental implants are a great alternative to partial dentures and look completely natural. They even require brushing and flossing just like normal teeth!

What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants use titanium anchors placed into the jaw bone to hold one or more teeth. This keeps the implant in place and looking natural. For a single tooth, the anchor works as a root, and for multiple teeth the implant can be fixed, or removable. Some implants are even used to hold dentures in place for people without enough jaw bone remaining for dentures to stay in place well, and also reduce the need for dental adhesives.
