Apex Dental can bring back your fully working smile with dental implants!
Implants are used to replace missing roots and support replacement teeth which are fixed to the implant.
To be eligible for implants, you must be in good health, have healthy gums, and enough bone in the jaw to support the implants. The procedure typically spans over multiple appointments. Once implants are installed they must be taken care of very well. Implants can be quite costly; they are typically much more expensive than other types of replacement teeth.
That being said, there are many good reasons to get implants. Jaw bone is likely to shrink if it does not have teeth to support. Adding implants lessens the likelihood of bone deterioration. Sometimes, a bone graft will be necessary to successfully use implants.
In some cases, implants can be used to support dentures as well.
