As is the case with most things in life, when it comes to choosing a dental implant there is no “one size fits all” solution. After a complete examination, your dentist will advise you which kind of dental implant is best for you.
Which dental implant system is used will depend on factors such as:
– The quality and density of bone in the jaw
– The state of your oral health
– The positioning of the implant
Dental implants are “sturdy, functional, and look like real teeth.” Dental implants will last a very long time if you practice good oral hygiene.
