Your smile deserves a second chance! Whether it be from age, injury, or poor oral hygiene, tooth loss is something millions of adults experience in their lifetime. However, with dental implants, you can restore the look and function of your bite with natural, lasting results.
Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots that support a crown. They’re used to permanently replaced one or more missing teeth. After determining if a patient is a candidate, we surgically place a titanium post into the jawbone to acts as a tooth root. From there, the post will integrate with the jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation for an abutment and custom-made crown to sit on top.
Beyond recreating your beautiful smile, placing dental implants comes with an array of benefits, including:
Before we can determine if dental implants are the best form of restoration for your smile, we’ll need to assess your current oral health. This starts with checking for any sort of decay or build ups that needs that need to be address prior to taking any action.
We’ll also take a look at your bone density to ensure that your jawbone is strong enough to support implants. Lastly, we’ll chat about your lifestyle, medical history, and other options to make sure you make an educated decision. All of this requires an appointment with our experienced dentist.
