If you are missing all your teeth, it is likely that you are wearing a denture. For denture wearers, chewing and biting food may not be an easy or comfortable experience. Many also suffer the embarrassment of having their dentures fall or slip out when laughing or speaking which has a negative effect on their confidence. You don't have to eat soft foods or wear removable dentures for the rest of your life.
Implant dentistry offers a long-term solution to patients with multiple missing teeth that will allow you to smile, speak and eat with confidence again. Implants are small, screw-shaped rods that are inserted into the jaw with a full-arch denture fixed permanently on top.
When you lose your natural teeth, the jawbone and surrounding tissues start to retreat or disappear over time, altering the structure of your face and giving your cheeks a sunken appearance. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone, causing it to grow and mesh around the titanium. Ultimately, this prevents bone loss from taking place and gives you a more youthful appearance in addition to a bright smile.
