Makeover Your Smile with Dental Implants
We specialize in dental implants, the state of the art substitute for healthy and natural teeth. Dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, and even helps to stimulate bone growth. Over three million people in the United States now have dental implants, and that number is growing annually by 500,000.
How Dental Implants Work
In a dental implant procedure, the dentist anchors a titanium screw into the jaw bone without having to alter adjacent teeth in any way. This provides a sturdy base for supporting an artificial tooth. If multiple teeth are missing, two or more implants may be used to secure a bridge. A connecter, known as an abutment, is then placed on top of the implant in order to further support the crown. Then the crown, which is custom made to perfectly match the patient’s other teeth and best fit in their mouth, is secured in place permanently. This procedure may even be used to provide a solid base upon which to anchor custom fitted dentures, which snap securely onto their abutments.
The Look & Function of Real Teeth
Dental implants owe their popularity to how convincingly they match the form and function of their recipients’ original teeth. We have performed this safe, predictable and relatively painless procedure many times.
