Dental implants are a permanent replacement for missing teeth, and they look, feel, and function just like your real teeth. Even though dental care has seen vast improvements, tooth loss is still a problem. Teeth can be lost due to decay, trauma or gum disease. Implants replace just the root, not the entire tooth. This gives patients a solid foundation for replacement teeth that can be either permanent or removable. Abutments and crowns attach to the implant and replace the tooth to its normal shape, color, and function. The biggest appeal for implants is that they do not attach to other exiting teeth and are not tied to the fate of these teeth.
We offer excellent conventional denture work, and we work with talented surgeons to offer implant-retained denture options. Implant procedures and technologies change and improve constantly. Our doctors stay up with these advances. When implants and dentures are combined, they can offer our patients up to 90% of their chewing forces back.
In some cases, teeth are not able to be saved and are best removed to keep your body healthy. We offer consultations to help you decide which option best meets your budget and needs. We work with excellent quality labs and offer exceptional conventional denture work to give patients without implants highly beautiful smiles.
Implant dentures are an incredible option to help you replace several missing teeth. Dental implants are an anchor for dentures and help give you better chewing force, prevent the denture from moving, and allow us to shorten the plastic edges of the denture. When implants and dentures are combined, they can offer our patients up to 90% of their chewing forces back. Should this be the best option for you, we will work with talented surgeons to remove teeth and place dental implants. We will also fabricate an interim denture that will function until the implants are healed and ready for your permanent implant denture.
