Dental implants are metal anchors, which act as tooth root substitutes. Dental implants help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing. With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

A denture, or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for cheeks and lips. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth, and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit.
