tooth replacement is achieved with implants. Implants are root replacements.
Once implanted into your jaw, the bone and the implant body integrate into
one cohesive member and provide a stable and reliable anchor on which a tooth
may be fabricated. Implant bodies are also employed as retention abutments
used in retaining full or partial dentures. In studies, dental implants are
shown to preserve bone and reduce gum tissue loss. Eating, speech and laughter
can now be performed with confidence. Patients feel better and gain a new
found zest for life, as implants are the closest thing to natural teeth. Historically,
dental implants have a high clinical success rate. Patients who have opted
for dental implants often remark how similar the implant feels to their own
natural teeth. The patient can enjoy new found confidence.
