In short, dental implants are the “artificial roots” we use to replace missing teeth. Some of the advantages of dental implants over traditional methods of tooth replacement reported by our patients are that they can “bite harder” and “chew better”. Our patients who wear dentures state that they “worry less about dentures coming loose when they are eating and talking”. We feel that implant-supported crowns are easier to maintain and much better for the long-term prognosis of surrounding teeth and tissues. Call for an implant evaluation today.
