Dental implant procedures have been found safe even for seniors and Type 2 diabetics. Moreover, there are also few treatment restrictions associated with dental implants.

When the implant device is surgically placed into the jaw, a chemical and mechanical bond is formed.

After the healing is done, the implants are used to anchor tooth crowns, a dental bridge or removable dentures. Eventually, the implanted teeth will look and feel just like your original teeth.
