- What to Expect After Receiving a Dental ImplantAs you know, your own teeth require conscientious, meticulous home care and regular dental visits.

Oral Consequences of Avoiding Implant Placement
Unlike other tooth replacement methods, implants integrate with the jaw and provide the necessary stimulation for healthy bone tissue, much like your natural teeth. Without this action, areas of tooth loss inevitably succumb to bone loss, a situation incurring a cascading effect of additional oral complications. Choosing implants to replace your teeth now saves you a great deal of time, money and stress over your oral health in the future.
