Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. They can also be used to make dentures fit more securely. Dental implants essentially serve as artificial replacements for the root portion of natural teeth. They preserve bone which is normally lost when teeth are removed. Unlike dentures they give teeth that are fixed in place (although they can be used to support and retain dentures). They can also provide a means of replacing teeth that does not involve “damaging” neighbouring teeth. They are often the best treatment option currently available for the replacement of missing teeth. For more information click here to go to the BioHorizons website.
