A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The benefit of using implants is that they don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable. Implants are a good solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth.

Implant material is made from different types of metallic and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with body tissue. There are different types of dental implants: the first is placed directly into the jaw bone, like natural tooth roots; the second is used when the jaw structure is limited, therefore, a custom-made metal framework fits directly on the existing bone.


Denture Over Implants

After the loss of several teeth, many patients require upper and/or lower dentures to restore the dentition. One of the biggest complaints for these patients is the movement or instability of the denture, especially the lower one. New technology offers a solution to this problem. By placing several dental implants in the jaw, the denture may be conveniently snap it into place providing a secure, sound restorative option for denture wearers. Depending on the case, the denture might be screw retained to the implants, providing a more secure and comfortable solution.

How do they work?

Strategically placed, implants can now be used to support permanently cemented bridges, eliminating the need for a denture.

Can anyone receive dental implants?

Talk with our experienced dentist, Paola Wainberg D.D.S. about whether you are an implant candidate. You must be in good health and have the proper bone structure and healthy gums for the implant to stay in place. People who are unable to wear dentures may also be good candidates.
