A security system for your smile
You wouldn’t buy a million dollar home and then leave the doors unlocked, would you? We didn’t think so. We know our patients are smarter than that. The same goes for replacing missing teeth. We can, of course, fit you with beautiful restorations to fill the gaps, but without the support of the tooth root, a crucial component of a healthy smile, you are putting your oral and jawbone health, and your facial aesthetics at risk. Our advice? Invest in a quality security system with dental implants.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are the #1 recommended tooth replacement solution, by doctors and patients alike. Rather than just replacing the crown or the visible part of the tooth, implants actually replace the root of the tooth, which is essential if you wish to prevent jawbone deterioration (like you may have seen in some patients who’ve allowed missing teeth to remain missing).
Implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone. They become an integrated, highly functioning part of the complex system that is your oral health. Once fused, your implants can serve as anchors for life-like restorations like crowns for a single tooth, bridges for multiple teeth, or dentures for a full arch.
If you are a good candidate for dental implants – you still have a healthy and dense enough jawbone to support them – we have a revolutionary implant-supported denture system available for you. We use the minimum number of implants (four) to support the maximum number of teeth (a full arch). This is the most secure, most life-like way to replace a full arch of teeth. The implants will help protect your facial aesthetics and prevent jawbone deterioration, while serving as anchors for your new teeth. Your arch will be secured to the implants so that they look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again!
