If you’re missing some or all of your natural teeth, dental implants are an ideal way to replace them. Dr. Prasad Gonavarum can closely match your new permanent dentures with the color and shape of your remaining teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. The majority of patients with missing teeth prefer dental implants to removable dentures because they remain firmly in place. You don’t have to give up your favorite foods or worry about your new teeth slipping out of place. Dental implants are also more comfortable because there is no hard plastic appliance covering the roof of your mouth.
