Top of the line in restorative dentistry, dental implants offer extensive oral health benefits that other forms of tooth replacement cannot. With implants, a rod of metal is permanently fixed in the bone to serve as a new tooth root, and the porcelain teeth on top of the implants can easily be replaced when needed. Implants can also hold down partial dentures, with only one implant needed for as many as four teeth. By giving your bone and gum tissue something to cling to and grow around, implants can help prevent the bone loss that is commonly associated with missing teeth.
