If you have missing teeth (a few or a lot), dental implant surgery can correct your smile. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants are permanently fused to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. Some people find the secure fit of implants more comfortable than conventional substitutes like dentures.
Because implants require surgery, they are not an option for everyone. Patients must be in good health, have adequate bone to support the implant, have healthy gums, and be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Dr. Adams can determine if implants are right for you. Call (619) 425-7700 to schedule a free consultation.
