Did you know, dental implants can do more than restoring one lost tooth? Well, it’s true! Dental implants have a variety of uses thanks to the advances in modern dentistry. That is why our team here at Dr. Dennis Burrell and Associates, PC in University Place, Washington, is happy to talk to you about the different ways dental implants can work.

Dental implants have been known for years to restore a single lost tooth. And while that is still true, a dental implant can be used to restore one lost tooth, now they have multiple uses. Dentures have also been used over the years to restore a full set of missing teeth. However, dentures can slip and slide at times, making life difficult. Now, dental implants can be used to lock dentures in place, so there is no more slipping or sliding from your dentures.

Dental bridges can also be helpful when it comes to restoring more than one tooth. If you struggle with your dental bridge, a dental implant can also hold them in place, giving your jaw full function again. Dental implants are deep and fuse with your bone, which makes them very strong and ideal to lock things in place. They are healthy for your body and can last for years to come.
