Dental implants are prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. They are designed to mimic the structure and function of natural teeth, providing a long-term solution for individuals with one or more missing teeth.
Dental implants are used when you have lost a tooth or multiple teeth due to injury, decay, or other oral health issues. They offer a durable and reliable alternative to traditional tooth replacement options such as dentures or bridges. Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth, or even support a full arch of teeth. They provide stability and functionality, allowing individuals to chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
Unlike removable dentures or bridges, implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, providing stability and preventing bone loss. This not only improves oral function but also helps maintain the integrity and structure of the jawbone. Additionally, dental implants offer aesthetic benefits, as they closely resemble natural teeth in appearance, ensuring a seamless and attractive smile. Dr. Chiu can speak with you during a consultation to see if implants are the right option for you.
