A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Unlike dentures, implants do not come loose and are not removable. This treatment may be an option for those who have missing teeth.
There are two types of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. Endosteal implants are directly implanted into the jawbone; subperiosteal implants, on the other hand, are placed through a metal framework post placed on the gums. People who have minimal bone height most commonly use this type of implant. Whatever type of dental implants you may need, we at Forever Smiles Turlock will be glad to help you.
The entire process will usually require several visits to our office here in Turlock, CA.
