Are you tired of living with missing teeth? Dental implants are your permanent solution! Implants are a great way to restore a beautiful smile along with its functionality. At Douglas & Wolfenden Dentistry, we strive to provide you with a beautiful smile for many years!
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth. There are two types of dental implants: fixed and removable. They resemble your natural teeth and restores normal bite pressure so you can eat your favorite foods! Dental implants boast a 98% success rate. With proper care, your dental implant can last a lifetime!
Dentures vs. Dental Implants
Dental implants are anchored directly to your jawbone. In fact, the implants offer support for the surrounding teeth and prevents premature aging. On the other hand, dentures need to be removed regularly and separated from your natural teeth.
Implants are beneficial because they don’t affect speech, unlike dentures. Of course, dental implants feel just like your natural teeth. Dentures must be glued to your mouth and can be troublesome for individuals.
Am I a Candidate?
