Dental implants rely on a process called osseointegration. In this process, the bone fuses to the implants, turning them into stable roots for your replacement crowns. However, for fusion to be successful, you first need to have sufficient bone mass. However, when you lose your teeth, the bone begins to weaken. The longer you wait for dental implants, the more bone mass is lost. Too little bone loss increases the risk of implant failure. However, just because your jawbone is too weak, that does not automatically mean implants are impossible. There are options such as the All on 4 treatment concept or a bone graft.
Dental implants provide a strong, stable, replacement for missing teeth, giving you back the functions of your mouth, your smile, and your quality of life.
