Dental Implants at Mountain View, CA
Dental implants are metal posts, frames or structures which are surgically planted into your gums above your jawbone. They are essentially foundations that dentists and oral surgeons use to mount replacement teeth. Unlike most other cosmetic treatments, dental implants are long-term investments, meaning that they will last for several years without the need to be redone. In fact, if they are maintained well, they can theoretically last for a lifetime.
These structures basically fuse to your jawbone and provide stable support for artificial teeth. The biggest advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth are required to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place unlike most other denture procedures
