Implant Retained Dentures. What Can a Denturist Do?
When a tooth has been extracted, the ideal replacement is a dental implant. This is because dental implants act just like natural teeth. They are surgically implanted into the jaw bone and offer the necessary support for adequate chewing and biting. Dental implants are a substitute for tooth roots and can also act as an anchor to support full and partial dentures.
Another way dental implants are beneficial, is they help to prevent bone loss by stimulating the bone in a manner similar to that which was previously provided by the natural tooth root system.
