If you are missing teeth and want a dental restoration that looks and feels as though it’s really part of your mouth, dental implants are right for you. Dr. Smith understands that you are making a very important decision about your smile and your oral health that will be with you the rest of your life. His goal is to provide you with detailed, individualized information to help you make an informed, decision.
After teeth have been removed, either from trauma or extractions, bone is continuously lost, particularly in the first years. Dental implants help to maintain the bone quality and volume, and minimize that bone loss.
Dental implants are the closest possible replacement of your natural teeth. They LOOK, FEEL AND FUNCTION like your own, allowing you to comfortably eat your favorite foods. They are strong, stable, and durable and will last many years.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and they provide a solution to loose dentures. Are you experiencing problems with your dentures such as slipping and clicking while you talk, or pain and irritation from an ill fitting appliance?
Implants can provide excellent support and stability for dental appliances.
