Dental implants can be used to restore one tooth, several missing teeth, or all of your teeth. One implant can support one crown, or several implants can anchor a complete or partial upper or lower denture.
In addition to tooth replacement, dental implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so you have a more natural-looking smile. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and, if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!
