At Groveport Dental Group, another option for replacing damaged or missing teeth is dental implants. Implants offer another alternative to dentures and crowns when patients want a replacement tooth that looks, feels and performs like their natural teeth. Implants are attached directly to the jawbone with a titanium post and serve as a base for replacement teeth, bridges or dentures. They help prevent bone deterioration that sometimes happens when teeth are missing. Dental Implants require multiple appointments to complete and not all patients are candidates for implants. Candidates must have healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant. If you have questions about dental implants or you want to see if you are a candidate for dental implants please give us a call at 614-492-1471.
