While we do everything possible to help you retain your natural teeth, sometimes the best option is to replace a missing or damaged tooth. Dental implants recreate individual or multiple teeth, using artificial anchors in the jawbone. When it’s time to truly heal your smile and restore complete function, talk to our doctors about dental implants.
Dental implants function like natural teeth, so they can prevent a number of problems including loss of bone in the jaw, shifting teeth, grinding and clenching and pain in the jaw joints that might occur with a missing tooth. Implants also give your tooth a completely natural appearance and because they offer a success rate higher than 97%, implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth.
There are a few options when considering dental implants such as permanent bridges, dentures or single implants. These options can be discussed with your doctor to see which is best for your situation.
