What Are Dental Implants?
With dental implants, you will find you can eat all the food you desire. There is no type of food that is off-limits. This means if you want a crunchy apple for a snack you can have one. You may notice the ability to eat hot or cold foods again without dealing with sensitivity issues. Foods you weren’t able to eat before such as popcorn, nuts, seeds, and candy you may notice are easier for you to chew and enjoy again.

During the exam, x-rays are done of your current oral bone structure along with cleaning and examination of existing teeth and gums. If an infection is found within the mouth that will have to be treated before any implantation of dental implants can be surgically placed to create a beautiful healthy smile.
