Dental implants are tiny metal posts that are surgically positioned beneath your gums, providing a permanent base for replacement teeth. These implants provide a long-term solution for missing teeth, and fit, feel and function like a natural tooth. For most patients, two separate surgical procedures are required to place the implants.
Dentures are a removable appliance that are used to replace missing teeth. Not only do dentures help restore your smile and ability to eat comfortably, but they also help maintain the structure of your facial muscles by supporting your cheeks and lips. Different types of dentures are available, your dentist will help determine the right denture for you.
