Full Smile Restoration with Dental Implants
Your teeth consist of more than what you see when you smile. For example, underneath your gums, the roots of your teeth rest within sockets in your jawbone. When you lose one or more teeth, you also lose their roots, though conventional dental bridges and dentures aren’t able to address that loss. Dental implants are small, root-like posts, often made from biocompatible titanium, that can be inserted into your jawbone to replace your lost teeth roots. The posts can be used to secure a custom-designed restoration with the same comfort and stability as healthy, natural teeth roots.
Why choose dental implants?
- They’re the only way to replace lost teeth roots – Dental implants are the only option for replacing the roots of the teeth you’ve lost. This means they can offer unmatched support for your replacement teeth, as well as reestablish the stimulation that your teeth roots are meant to provide your jawbone.
- They can support any size dental prosthesis – Each dental implant post is placed separately, and the number of posts you receive depends on the number of teeth you’ve lost. Using one or several implant posts, you can enjoy more lifelike support regardless of whether you need a dental crown, bridge, or denture to rebuild your smile.
- They can last for life, with proper care – Once dental implant posts are placed within your jawbone, the bone around them fuses to their surfaces. This makes them permanent parts of your jawbone, and with proper care and maintenance, the posts can remain in place for life.
- They’re placed by a highly trusted specialist – While we don’t place dental implants in our office, we work closely with a number of trusted oral health specialists who we can refer you to for your implant placement procedure. Once your jawbone has healed, we can restore your implant posts with the appropriate, custom-made restoration.
