We know that for many people losing a tooth can cause problems socially and be a source of personal physical discomfort. Losing a tooth because of an accident or other mishap can be discouraging and leave many of us unsure of what to do next. Thankfully because of modern dental technology, we can now offer dental implants as a fantastic treatment option for those who have lost teeth.
Tooth implants are a wonderful way to restore functionality and the appearance of your smile. Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots that are typically made of a special alloy. The implant is inserted into your upper or lower jawbone, and then after the healing process is complete the root is combined with a beautiful porcelain crown creating an excellent replacement tooth. This “new” tooth functions just like your natural ones, and looks like a natural tooth too.
When a tooth is extracted it can cause your jawbone to deteriorate. A dental implant restores support in your jawbone, helping your jaw to stay strong and healthy.
Tooth implants can also be used to provide stability for dentures. Creating a solid anchor point for your dentures greatly reduces the chance of denture slippage. With implant supported dentures you will no longer have to worry about your dentures coming out when you don’t want them to!
We are proud to be able to offer this great technology as a treatment for tooth loss in our patients. Dental implants have improved the lives of countless people, and have been a wonderful advancement in cosmetic dentistry.
