If you have loose teeth you are most likely looking for a way to recover the ability to do simple things like eat anything you want or smile with confidence. Dental implants can change your life for the better and give you back the life you had when your teeth were healthy.
Whether you smoke, have gum disease, have dentures, or even have missing teeth you can still have dental implants safely placed in your mouth. In fact, dental implants can replace your missing teeth and they can even support the dentures in your mouth and give them stability.
People often ask, “what are dental implants?” Quite simply they are titanium posts that are inserted or placed into the jaw bone. What happens next is that the implant bonds to the existing bone and this is what gives it a solid foundation.
The fact is that with dental implants you will never be without teeth. furthermore, if you have dentures they will be adjusted the SAME day to fit over the area. Then after you have healed which typically takes about 3-4 months, you will receive a replacement tooth.
The procedure can be done with local anesthetics, nitrous oxide (laughing gas), or even sedation for those patients who experience anxiety.
