Implants and Dentures
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed beneath the gums, into the bone. After the post is placed, the implant fuses to the bone of your jaw and acts as an artificial tooth root. A dental implant is a great solution for missing teeth. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, dental implants can be used create a beautiful, natural looking smile.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore a beautiful smile. They are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. If you have lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, injury tooth or tooth decay, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth, which people often take for granted.
If you have been struggling with uncomforatble dentures, come in for a consultation.
