A dental implant is a titanium post that serves like a tooth root, surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line to allow the dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge. Unlike dentures, implants don’t come loose and feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold a new replacement tooth in place.
The All-on-4 dental implant procedure is recommended for people with failing teeth, no teeth, those currently wearing dentures, and those in need of full upper and/or lower restorations.
Cosmetic dentistry has evolved from the simple replacement and restoration of damaged teeth.
