What makes dental implants a good solution for replacing lost teeth? What are they, anyway? The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) answers basic questions about dental implants. Take a look below.
What are dental implants?
They are basically substitute roots to address missing teeth. They act as anchors for replacements.
Can I be a candidate?
Anyone can get implants, from children to adults. Have you lost teeth from decay, disease, or injury? Dental implants may be the right solution for you, especially if it’s not practical for you to wear removable dentures. A good San Diego dentist will refer to your dental and medical history for evaluation.
