If you are missing one or more teeth, you may be missing out on a lot of things. A missing tooth is more than just an aesthetic concern. All too often, an individual missing a tooth in the back of their mouth will have an "out of sight, out of mind" mentality. You may miss the comfort and beauty that full dentition offers. You may miss laughter, smiling and even kissing. In short, you may miss living as you want to live.
dental implants can help restore your smile to the way it once was. A dental implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. The post functions as the root portion of the lost natural tooth and serves as an anchor for a replacement tooth. Once the post has settled, an artificial tooth is attached to fill the space that was once your missing tooth.
Whether you need a single tooth or a whole mouthful, dental implants offer a second chance at having the appearance and functionality of natural teeth. They look, feel and function just like a natural tooth, and can last even longer. Implants can even anchor custom-fitted partials or full dentures for unsurpassed comfort and stability.
A dental implant often gives back a patient's confidence in their smile, the ability to eat comfortably and a clean, healthy oral environment. Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth. No one other than you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference. Dental implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
