The most advanced way to regain and maintain a healthy smile.
Dental implants are the modern, conservative solution for the age-old problems of missing teeth and loose, unstable dentures.
Replacing missing teeth is very important for protecting the health of your teeth, gums, and jaw. If missing teeth are not replaced, it can cause surrounding teeth to drift out of place and deterioration of the underlying bone.
Unstable dentures are uncomfortable to wear and make it hard to eat or speak - sometimes resulting in embarrassing slippage. Dental implants are the perfect solution.
Here's how they work:
And why we know you will too!
Dental implants keep a one tooth problem - a one tooth problem! There's no need to modify surrounding healthy teeth to place it, which a dental bridge would require.
Placing dental implants takes only a few visits to our office and prevents the need for further procedures. We do the entire procedure right here, so need to bounce around to other offices.
Dental implants restore your teeth to full function again. The crown restoration is custom designed to match the shape and color of your natural teeth. Your implant will look and feel very natural.
Titanium is extremely durable, and dental crowns are not subject to decay, unlike natural teeth. With a good oral hygiene routine, you will be able to enjoy your implants for decades.
When you lose a tooth, it is also common to lose bone density. Implants replace the missing tooth root and protect the bone from further deterioration and additional tooth loss down the road.
Missing teeth and eventual bone loss affect the support of facial muscles, causing a "sunk-in" look and wrinkles. Implants ensure continued facial support and a more youthful appearance.
