Don’t be afraid to smile!
You now have an option to help with the below problems:
- A missing tooth or teeth
- Potential bite and jaw joint problems from teeth shifting to fill the space
- Desire to improve chewing ability
- Desire for a more permanent solution than dentures
A dental implant can change your life! They allow you to eat, laugh, speak and enjoy life as you did with their natural teeth. Dental implants are in most cases the best way to replace missing teeth. An implant consists of a titanium screw that is placed in the bone where there is a missing tooth or teeth. The bone bonds to the titanium to form a strong foundation for the crown. After the healing period, typically three months, the crown is placed on the titanium implant. Implants look, feel and function like your natural teeth. You regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence. Another important benefit of implants is that the underlying bone does not deteriorate as it does when teeth are missing.
