Dental implants are estimated to be seven times stronger than natural teeth. They can also withstand biting, chewing, speech, and pressure forces that cannot be supported by any other tooth-replacement implant. However, the jawbone may eventually wear out over time. If this occurs, it is possible to replace the implant later.
The use of dental implants has increased significantly in recent years as their benefits have become better known. If you are missing one or more teeth, talk to your dentist about the possibility of dental implants as a possible treatment option.
Depending on the need and type of teeth replacement, Dr. Sonneveld performs various dental implant procedures.
