A permanent solution to restore missing teeth.
About Dental Implants
When you have a missing tooth, a dental implant is the closest replacement you can get to a healthy, natural tooth. Dental implants allow you to live the way you want—confidently eating, smiling, laughing, and even sneezing without worrying about your teeth.
Dentures or partials often make it hard for people to cough, chew, laugh, sneeze, talk or even smile without worrying if their partials or dentures will slip. Denture wearers often experience soreness from lose dentures or notice a shrunken appearance in their face as the gums and bones in their jaws recede. Fortunately, dental implants can offer a permanent solution to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants are indistinguishable from your natural teeth, using a titanium screw and natural-looking crown. Utilizing digital panoramic x-rays and Sirona CBCT 3D imaging, we get a clear picture of the state of your bone at the site of the implant, as well as a wealth of other vital information. Then, we place titanium screws. Once placed in your gums, the implant can anchor a bridge, denture, or even a single crown in your mouth. Implants are long-lasting and they won’t slip or move in your mouth or cause injury or irritation.
Dental Implant Overdentures
One of the complaints we often get from denture wearers is that they are uncomfortable and not stable. Dental Implant supported dentures can help. Dental implants can securely hold dentures in place. Carefully placed with guided surgery, dental implants act as the roots of your teeth and your dentures are supported by, and attached to, these implants—improving your chewing ability and confidence in your dentures.
