According to scientific literature, dental implants have a success rate of 98%, but 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth in one or both jaws. Whatever the reason, people often put dental work on hold. Now is the best time to get dental work done. Today an experienced oral surgeon can handle dental implant surgery in record time and safety.
Dental implant surgery is the procedure to replace missing teeth. It uses a titanium screw or rod to replace the “root” of your missing tooth. That rod infuses with your jawline. The root is then topped with a realistic-looking “crown” that becomes your new tooth.
Surgery can replace more than one missing tooth. Full denture implants can replace all teeth in your mouth. Also called over-dentures, full denture implants are when more than two implants are placed. This procedure is common for those who need a full mouth or jawline full of teeth replaced.
If you are unsure whether you qualify for dental implants call your doctor. A dental surgeon can look at your missing teeth and decide whether you are able to get dental implants. To help you decide let’s look at some improvements and advantages that come with full denture implants.
