A dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace missing teeth. The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution.
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Implants are surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, and fuse to the jawbone. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone, a process called osseointegration. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural, and some people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes. Candidates for dental implants must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant.
Dental implants have the advantage of appearing far more natural when compared to dentures. They are also more secure in comparison as the false teeth will clamp down onto the implants that are attached to the jawbone.

Implant Supported Dentures
Implant anchored dentures provide you with a unique alternative to traditional dentures. With this treatment your replacement teeth, ceramic crowns, rely on titanium posts for support rather than your gums.
