Important Things to Know
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
There are many advantages to dental implants, including:
1 Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
2 Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
3 Improved comfort. Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
