Repairing Your Smile
If you have missing or severely damaged teeth, a dental implant can be one of the most effective ways to achieve the smile of your dreams – and luckily, this procedure also provides one of the most long-lasting dental care solutions available. Implants serve as a long-term, durable method of tooth replacement. By replacing one or more of your weak, decayed or broken teeth with an implant, your dentist can save your mouth from further damage and lost functionality. Keeping you healthy is our top priority.
Dental implants are made of titanium, and are surgically-placed in the jaw bone for ultimate sturdiness.
A crown or bridge is then placed on the implant, completing your new smile. In addition to single tooth replacement, implants can also be used to hold a full set of dentures in place, without the irritation associated with typical false teeth. While traditional dentures allow the jaw bone below to continue weakening after tooth loss, dental implants mimic the stimulating effect of natural teeth while chewing, keeping the bone strong and healthy. Best of all, you can eat and brush with your implant-retained dentures or crowns just like you would with natural teeth.
