Okay, so these are implants, as you can see through the transparent model. An implant is just replicating the root portion of a tooth and this is the crown part of the implant that we would place on top. Feels like your natural tooth. The only difference is that it would never need a root canal and it would never decay. The best candidates are those with multiple missing teeth, it just gives them a great opportunity to eat and smile and restore normal function that they didn’t have before. I enjoy so much having my clients come in with partial dentures, they talk about food getting stuck on there and the smell of it. They talk about the wires, the ugly wires that people see when they smile and the ability to place implants and to throw that away. Unreal but for those folks who have had implants placed, it’s been life changing.
