Dental Implants

Don’t Live with Damaged Teeth Any Longer!

Are you embarrassed about missing or damaged teeth? You are not alone. Over 100 million adults have missing teeth.

EmbarrassedFor many patients that have missing teeth or patients that recently had a tooth extraction, dental implants can be a great solution. These small, solid, titanium posts are inserted into your jaw bone where your tooth’s natural root would be. Once your bone grows back in around the implant, your dentist can affix a crown, bridge, or overdenture to the post. Unlike dentures, implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth.

In order to keep your implants healthy, you will need to maintain them, as you do natural teeth, with brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups.

Benefits of Implants

Dental ImplantsIf you are considering solutions for your missing teeth, consider the benefits that come along with dental implants. They are great for:

  • Helping prevent bone loss and gum recession.
  • Making it easier to chew, eat, talk and smile.
  • Supporting a single or full bridge.
  • Reducing wrinkles on your face, giving you a younger appearance.
  • Securing dentures for a more comfortable fit.
  • Providing a reliable, long-term dental solution that can last a lifetime!
