Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in the jawbone, they can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth. When a patient is missing all or most of their teeth, implants can be used as anchors to help improve the stability of dentures or partial dentures.
Dentures and partial dentures are false teeth that sit on your gums and they help replace missing teeth. Unfortunately even the best dentures in the world will move while you eat since they float on your gums and don’t have much anchorage. This is why more and more patients that wear dentures are getting implants to help improve the stability of their dentures. While both offer a solution to tooth loss, you should discuss your options with your dentist to better understand which option is right for you.
