Replacing Teeth With Dental Implants
Dental implants are titanium screws that replace the root of the tooth by surgical implantation in the jaw. They provide a strong, permanent support for a porcelain crown that’s cemented to the implant. Implants have the advantage of:
- Improved appearance
- Improved speech and eating
- Improved self-esteem
If dentures are a better option for you, Dr. DeMars will recommend All on 4 implant-retained dentures, where just 4 specially designed implants are strategically positioned on one arch. Your denture is made with 4 tiny holes that snap onto the implants. They’re an amazing improvement over dentures that are held on with adhesive. With All on 4 dentures, there’s no worry about embarrassing slippage or not being able to eat certain foods.
