What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. They’re made of titanium and are surgically placed into the jawbone, where they bond with the natural bone over time. Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, several teeth, or even an entire set of replacement teeth.
How Can Implants Help Restore My Smile?
Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. They’re designed to match the shape and color of your existing teeth, and they function just like real teeth — eating, speaking, and smiling with ease. Implants also help maintain the shape of your face, preventing sagging and wrinkles caused by missing teeth.
Here are some additional benefits:
- Improved oral health: Since implants don’t require adjacent teeth to be altered, more of your natural teeth can remain intact.
- Durability: Implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
- Comfort: Because they become part of you, dental implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
- Convenience: Unlike dentures, implants don’t need to be removed for cleaning.
- Improved self-esteem: Implants look and feel just like your natural teeth, helping you to smile with confidence.
Single Tooth Implant
At our practice, replacing a single missing tooth with a dental implant is routine and simple. We start by inserting a titanium implant into your jawbone that’ll become fully integrated over the course of several months. From there, we craft an individualized crown to ensure proper bite function and give you back an aesthetically pleasing smile. Our team carefully designs each crown for optimal integration with your existing teeth so it blends in seamlessly!
An implant-supported bridge offers a reliable and permanent solution for replacing several consecutive teeth. We begin by placing an implant into the jawbone at each end of your gap, forming a secure base to support the bridge. The bridge itself consists of crowns connected to implants on either side with replacement teeth in between them — giving it its name as it “bridges” those missing sections! With these strong and stable foundations, you can be sure that this is not only an effective but also a long-lasting tooth replacement option.
Dentures & Partial Dentures
If you are struggling with the lack of your natural teeth, dentures will help restore your confidence and enable you to do everything that brings joy into your life. If you are missing certain teeth but still have remaining healthy ones, partial dentures might be the ideal solution for you. With this option, your dentist can fill in gaps and keep intact any of your existing teeth.
Our full dentures are crafted to restore the entire upper or lower arch of your teeth, allowing you to eat and speak with ease. Both options come in removable forms, requiring a few visits for proper fitting from our team. With their ideal fit and feel, you can start showing off your beautiful
