Fill in the Gaps in Your Smile
If you’re struggling with missing or broken teeth, you aren’t alone. Did you know there are as many as 100 million adults in America that are experiencing the same thing? The good news is, you don’t have to struggle forever. Dental implants may be the perfect solution to your problems.
Dental implants are small posts that are secured into your jaw bone. Over time as the bone grows around them, they become a permanent part of your mouth that can support a crown, bridge, or denture. If you care for them properly, they can last a lifetime. Luckily, caring for them doesn’t require special treatment so you can continue to brush, floss, and visit the dentist as usual.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
We understand that dental implants can sound scary, but they are actually the most natural solution we have to replace missing teeth. As your bone grows around them, you won’t even be able to tell that they’re there. Dental implants offer many other benefits including:
- Allow you to easily chew, eat, talk, and smile
- Eliminate the need for partial dentures
- Lessen bone loss and gum recession
- Support a dental bridge
- Anchor dentures for a comfy, secure fit
- Prevent your face from caving
- Offer a permanent, lifelong solution
Dental implants are available in several different options. Our dentists can discuss those options with you to find the one that suits your situation the best. We are partnered with local oral surgeons so you may also be referred to them if needed.
In certain cases, your dentist may first recommend a tooth extraction, especially if you have a decaying tooth.
