Implants – Port City Family Dentistry

When tooth decay or disease is so drastic that the root of a tooth is destroyed, dental implants may be the best course of action. These implants are made to act like prosthetic roots, holding a subsequently placed synthetic tooth in place. Sometimes they are desired purely for aesthetic reason but they nonetheless provide the owner with more comfortable eating, better clarity in speech, and the confidence that a smile won’t reveal a gaping hole in one’s teeth.
