When it comes to replacing damaged and missing teeth, we have found that dental implants consistently give the best results. Not only do they look and feel more like natural teeth, they also help improve your overall oral health.
Dental implants use a biocompatible metal post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. As time passes, the body actually bonds to the implant. This process is known as osseointegration and it helps to increase the security and permanency of the implant.
We can restore dental implants in a number of ways, depending on your individual needs and preferences. A single tooth can be replaced with a single dental implant topped with a porcelain crowns. If you are missing a couple teeth in a row, implants can be used to support a bridge. This option can be a more affordable way to replace multiple teeth and, unlike a traditional bridge, doesn’t require any alteration to existing healthy teeth.
If you are missing all the teeth on either your upper or your lower arch, we can discuss implant dentures. This option allows us to use just a few implants to secure your dentures – your dentures will be made to literally lock into place. Denture wearers love this option because it prevents some of the most common problems with dentures, namely the shifting and slipping that can occur.
