What are Dental Implants?

Many people have questions about dental implants, and the difference between implants and other tooth replacement solutions. Dental implants replace a tooth’s roots with artificial posts, providing a base for artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or full upper and lower sets. They are very much like real teeth in appearance, function, and feel, making them a welcome alternative to dentures, bridges, and crowns. Unlike these alternative options, there is no need to worry about dental implants slipping or moving, and or problems with eating or repair. Much like natural teeth, dental implants last for as long as they are taken care of.

All-on-four implants are for those who require full upper or lower tooth replacement. This means that surgeons place just four implants, which are then used as an anchor for a full upper and/or lower arch of teeth to attach to. One the implant is placed, a crown is attached, resembling a natural tooth and providing a glowing smile!

The dentists at ProHEALTH believe dental implants are a safe and effective method of tooth replacement. For more information on dental implants, visit ProHEALTH’s implant education center!
