Advantages of Dental Implants at Gillooly Denture Clinics

Denture technology has come a long way and offers patients a suitable alternative to missing teeth. However, dentures can still be uncomfortable and interfere with eating and tasting your food and your ability to speak clearly, which can lead to a lack of confidence.

A dental implant is a biocompatible, artificial tooth root made of titanium to which your bone will attach itself, providing a natural-looking crown for the support you had with your natural teeth. Dental implants increase stability, function, and aesthetics and preserve the integrity of bone.

Implants are permanent and easy to maintain and eliminate unnecessary movement and pain associated with dentures. At Gillooly Denture Clinics we are denturists specializing in implants, making every effort to stay current with the types of implants available.

Implants Are an Investment in Your Health

When teeth are missing, the surrounding bone begins to shrink. This unhealthy bone loss can make denture stability difficult and your face shape can begin to alter. Dental implants can help prevent deterioration of the jawbone.
