Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth
Missing Teeth? Why Not 'Grow' New Ones?
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most
visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you
recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums,
are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it
comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to
replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can
replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at
night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there’s no need to
be referred to another office.
We are proud to be one of the first practices in our area to use the Sirona ORTHOPHOS™ SL 3D cone beam CT
digital imaging technology. Think of this as a three dimensional X-ray
that is FAR more accurate than traditional
X-rays, takes much less time and does all this with much less radiation exposure. A great advantage of using
ultra cone beam images when diagnosing patients and evaluating treatment options is the dentist’s ability to
clearly see the patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This leads to much greater
accuracy for all dental treatment, especially implant placement and any oral surgeries.
