- Replace missing teeth

Growing in popularity, implants have become increasingly popular among adults aged 55-64. Capped with crowns, implants require bone in order to place the screwlike implants. Firstly, the damaged root is extracted and a hole is made in the jawbone. A post, also known as a metal prosthetic root, is implanted into the bone. When the bone starts to grow around the post, a crown is fitted.
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are not only removeable but fitted custom to your mouth. Dentures can either be fitted as a complete set to replace ALL missing teeth or made to replace a few missing teeth, known as partial dentures. Dentures are made to look like natural teeth and gums and held in place with a special form of adhesive that bonds them to your gum.
The cost associated with dentures and implants depends on the type of treatment you require related to each option. For more information relating to Dentures vs. Implants, please speak without team here at Dentistry on 88!
