Did you know there are alternative options to dentures for your incomplete smile? If you have lost or missing teeth, more permanent options such as dental implants can be used to complete your smile and restore its full functionality. However, unlike dentures, dental implants are not removable and will not run the risk of falling out during mealtime.

Dental implants require a strong jawbone to be implemented. If your jaw is strong enough, dental implants are directly installed in your jawbone for a durable hold that can last a lifetime. Fortunately, due to their design, if a dental implant should be knocked out, in many cases it can be very easily replaced.

Dental implants are fully customizable and can be crafted to suit a variety of needs. Implants can be shaped and adjusted based on your needs, even if you have abnormal spacing issues that stand to be corrected. Implants can also be naturally shaded to match the color of your remaining teeth. In addition, implants can strengthen and repair any weakness or deterioration that may have been lost by your jaw due to tooth loss.
