Q.

IS IT SAFE TO IMPLANT ARTIFICIAL TEETH

I' m 41 years old and have removed my two front teeth when I was still a teenager and bought dentures later in the early 90' s. i do not want these dentures anymore I would like to have implanted artificial teeth to fill in the gap. Now, I don' t have an idea of how this is done and what complications might result thereof. Please advise.

Hi, I am 55 years old, had my first implants done on 51. Planning to do another 5 next month. You can really go for this, it is grate technology. You can have the two greatest front teeth in 6 months time.
