Is a gap or missing tooth in your smile causing you to feel self-conscious? With a dental implant procedure, a skilled dentist can give you back a smile that is beautiful and functional. Read on to learn more about this amazing restorative treatment–it may be the solution you’ve been waiting for!

How We Craft Dental Implants

Your dental implant will be specially crafted to fit your smile perfectly. We begin the process by evaluating the health of your gums and jawbone density to determine if you are a good candidate for a dental implant. If things look good, we surgically implant a biocompatible titanium post into your jawbone. This fills the empty space left by your missing tooth. We will place a structure on top of the post that looks and feels exactly like natural teeth. This will be either a crown for a single missing tooth, or a bridge or denture for multiple missing teeth. The result is a mouth full of strong, beautiful teeth that allow you to eat, chew, smile, and speak naturally and with confidence.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

If you have a gap or sunken space in your mouth due to a missing teeth, it’s not just an aesthetic condition. Food traps caused by missing teeth can lead to inflammation, infection, abscesses, and gum disease. Getting dental implants makes this much less likely. Moreover, dental implants act and feel like natural teeth. And unlike typical dentures, a dental implant is fixed and can’t slip around in your mouth.

A Long-Term Solution for a Lasting Smile

Another great advantage to dental implants is how long they last. With proper care, dental implants can last upwards of 10-15 years. In some cases, they might even last for the rest of your lifetime! So if you’re tired of hiding your smile because of missing teeth or having to plan your life around dentures, dental implants may be the solution for you. A member of our team can walk you through the process and discuss if this option is best for you. We love seeing our patients experience a new lease on life because of a beautiful smile.
