If you are missing one or more teeth, you may know how difficult it can be to chew, speak and even smile. When teeth are missing, they may cause your mouth to shift and your face to look older. Fortunately, missing teeth can be replaced, and dental implants are an excellent option. A dental implant is much like a natural tooth, which has a root in your jawbone, topped by a crown that you can see. The implant itself acts like the root of a tooth, with your bone fusing to it to make it permanent. Then, the dentist designs a crown that fits to the implant.
Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, and are especially effective for lower dentures that tend to move when you eat and speak. Our patients have been amazed at the results of this incredible technology that gives them back what has been lost. And if you wear removable partial dentures, we can replace them with permanent implant teeth so that you’ll be able to eat all your favorite foods and have a more natural-looking smile.
