Do you know the differences between Dental Implants, Porcelain Veneers and Dentures? Here is an overview on how to choose what is right for you to get that designer smile!
What is a Dental implant?
A dental implant is commonly known as a titanium post (similar to a tooth root), which is surgically placed underneath the gum line (into the jawbone) to allow your dentist to mount a bridge or replacement teeth into that area. An implant does not come loose while a denture can. In many cases, dental implants can benefit general oral health since they don’t have to be attached to other teeth, compared to bridges.
How do Dental Implants Work?
Because their implants are fused to your jawbone, they often provide stable and firm support to your artificial teeth. Bridges and dentures that are mounted to implants rarely shift or slip in your mouth especially when speaking or even eating. This secure fit will helps the bridges and dentures to help you feel more natural as opposed to conventional dentures or bridges.
