DENTAL IMPLANTS - Do you want to smile again? Have a safe and quiet chew? Can not take your dentures or the nuisance generated by your maintenance? Dental implants are a safe and highly natural solution for those who have lost one or more teeth and wish to have the smile aesthetics and masticatory function again.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS? - Dental implants are brackets or metal structures (usually titanium) surgically positioned in the maxillary bone below the gingiva to replace the dental roots. Once placed, they allow the dentist to mount replacement teeth on them.
HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK? - By being integrated into the bone, the implants provide a stable support for the artificial teeth. Partial and full dentures mounted on implants will not slip or change position in the mouth, a great benefit during feeding and speech. This type of prosthesis is called "implant prosthesis" and gives the patient more safety in all mouth functions providing a more natural situation than conventional bridges or dentures. To receive a dental implant, you must have healthy gums and adequate bones to support it. You should also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are essential to the long-term success of your implants.
