Dental implants have gained a lot of popularity in recent years as more and more patients appreciate the benefits they offer. The remarkable thing about dental implants is that they are not just an aesthetic solution – they really do look and function like a real tooth.
Many people think of dental implants as being a recent innovation, but the truth is that they have been in use for over 40 years! They have proven to be a long-lasting and reliable tooth replacement that has helped many patients improve their appearance and their oral health.
A dental implant is surgically placed in your jaw and eventually integrates with surrounding bone tissue. The presence of this replacement root prevents bone deterioration, which is a common problem associated with tooth loss.
The implant also forms a stable base so that we can attach a dental crown that is fully functional and long-lasting. Dr. Pruce has been placing these dental implant restorations for many years with beautiful results.
