DENTAL IMPLANTS FOR YOUR MOST CONFIDENT SMILE
Are you missing one or more teeth? Has it been awhile since you’ve felt comfortable flashing a full smile? If so, dental implants might be the answer you’re looking for.
While keeping up with routine teeth cleanings and dental care can help preserve your natural teeth, missing teeth are more common than you might think. Fortunately, you can still have a beautiful, complete set of teeth. Dental implants offer a permanent solution for replacing teeth that are missing due to injury or disease.
Once in place, dental implants look and feel completely natural. You will be able to eat normally and you won’t be able to help but smile!
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are made of titanium or zirconium and constructed to mimic the look and function of the missing tooth (or teeth.)
- First, a synthetic root is surgically placed into the jawbone.
- An abutment is then placed above the surface of the gum.
- Finally, the abutment is covered with a porcelain crown that matches the natural color of your teeth.
Whether you want to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants are a popular solution with many benefits.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can go a long way in rejuvenating your smile. However, not everyone will be a good candidate for this procedure. Your jawbone must be able to withstand and support the placement of implants.
Your first visit will include a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jawbone along with X-rays and scans that will help us determine if dental implants are the best solution for you.
