New Teeth For A New Smile
Do you avoid laughing out loud, smiling or eating in public because a space left by your missing teeth may show?
Or are you concerned that your denture may slip at an inconvenient moment?
If so, dental implants may improve the way you feel about your teeth. No matter how many teeth you are missing, dental implants may make it possible for you to eat and speak with comfort and confidence again.
When Teeth are Missing
You may have spaces in your mouth where teeth were lost or removed or never grew in. Although these spaces may be embarrassing, traditional dental bridgework isn’t always the best solution. You may not want to sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge a space. Or, removing a complete or partial denture at night may be inconvenient.
Consider Dental Implants
If you want a dental restoration that looks and feels as though it is really part of your mouth, dental implants may be right for you. Used successfully for many years, dental implants anchor artificial teeth into your jawbone to provide a secure, stable fit. Implants can meet your individual needs whether you are missing all, a few or only one of your teeth.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant replaces only the tooth root. Simply put, it is a man-made tooth root, formed from a biologically safe metal designed in a variety of shapes and size to fit patient’s individual needs. The implant allows direct bone attachment, thus providing stability similar to a healthy tooth root. Dental implants are just as effective for replacing one tooth as they are for replacing many teeth. They can be used to: eliminate or stabilize a partial denture; retain and support a denture; or eliminate dentures entirely by supporting a complete fixed bridge or replacing individually all missing teeth.
