Dental implants offer an alternative to dentures
Updated: 1/6/2009 8:00:19 PM

Dental implants offer an alternative to dentures For years, dentures and fixed bridges were the only options for people who were missing permanent teeth and wanted to improve their smile and dental health.

Now, people have an alternative - dental implants. This surgery is used to replace damaged or missing teeth with false ones that have a natural look.

According to the Mayo Clinic, dental implants may be preferable to other dental care options because they do not carry a risk of damaging healthy teeth, they have a realistic appearance and they do not slip like dentures can.

They are also seen as being stronger and longer-lasting than dentures and bridges.

The process of having dental implants takes several stages, which means it can take several months for your mouth to look its best.

During the surgery, dental implants are placed in the jawbone to take the place of missing teeth. The metal fuses with the jawbone, then an extension (abutment) is fitted on top. Finally, a crown is fitted to the extension.
