If your dentures hurt, slip out of place or gag you when you chew or talk, you may want to consider dental implants.
Dental implants are small titanium cylinders surgically inserted into the bone of your jaw, creating the foundation for new teeth.
By replacing the roots of missing teeth, they also stabilize bone, which is otherwise lost once teeth are missing.
For people for whom the transition to dentures has never been optimal, dental implants can provide an invaluable sense of confidence. If you are only missing one tooth or several teeth, you can similarly replace just those missing teeth.
