Are you too embarrassed to smile because you’re missing some teeth? Do you struggle to eat the foods you enjoy most because of tooth loss? Have you grown tired of wearing traditional dentures, and would like to know more about dental implants as an alternative tooth replacement therapy?
Total Tooth Replacement Therapy
The key to a beautiful new smile after losing your teeth may be dental implants. Not only will you feel more confident and attractive, but placing of dental implants can actually stimulate bone growth, making your jaw stronger and more resilient. This can help to reduce further oral health problems in the future.
Types of Tooth Replacement
Whether you’re looking for a total tooth replacement or partial tooth replacement solution, dental implants offer a strong foundation for the placement of your oral prosthesis – otherwise known as your “New teeth.”
Dental implants are comprised of three components: a titanium post to act as a tooth root; a titanium or ceramic abutment that sits just below the gum line and acts as an anchor or connector to an artificial tooth; and a crown, bridge or denture, crafted of durable ceramic materials that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Once your new teeth have been fabricated and placed on your implants, and once your gums have healed, you will have a beautiful smile, and will once again enjoy the ability to eat virtually any food you choose, including steak and corn-on-the-cob at your next backyard cookout!
Dental implants are the most natural form of tooth replacement therapy we have ever been able to provide. When properly placed, the implant will fuse to the bone and become a functional part of your jaw. It’s a fixed solution, allowing you to eat, speak, smile, and care for your teeth as if they were the ones you were born with.
Many of our patients have been amazed by the way dental implants have allowed them to enjoy socializing with friends and family again, enabling them to feel comfortable and confident in what used to be awkward situations.
