If you are missing one or more teeth, you’ll want replacements that are as natural as possible. If partial dentures don’t work for you, Dr. Kesteven may consider dental implants. Unlike partial dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself.
Generally, Dr. Kesteven feels you are a good candidate for implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and healthy oral tissues. When the implant device is inserted into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed. The jawbone actually grows into the implant.
With implants, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as (or better than!) your original teeth.
