Dental implants hold an artificial tooth in place.

Some people find ordinary dentures uncomfortable because they would constantly shift inside the mouth when they talk or eat. However, there is a better solution to this dental problem—dental implants.

Dental implants secure and support the dentures and bridges in place. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is anchored to the bone beneath the gums and it functions like a natural tooth. Patients who get dental implants need to have good dental care habits in order to keep them healthy.
