Replacing your smile

replace your Missing teeth and smile again

With dental implants, you can eat all of your favorite foods again, and speak and smile with more confidence. Because dental implants act a lot like the roots of natural teeth, they provide unbeatable stability for a wide range of dental prostheses, from crowns and bridges to a full set of teeth. For people who wear full dentures, dental implants give them the extra stability and hold they need to make them more comfortable and fit better, and to keep them from embarrassingly slipping out of place.

Missing teeth do more than just leave gaps in your smile that make you look bad. For one thing, they can make it hard to talk or chew food that is good for you. If you don’t replace missing teeth, the ones next to them can move into the space over time. This can change your bite and damage your smile in many ways.

With all the improvements in dental materials, technology, and treatment methods, it is now easier than ever to replace missing teeth in a way that looks natural and is good for your appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

In addition to representing the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth, dental implants are also the most versatile. While an individual implant supports a crown to replace a single tooth, additional implants can also be placed to replace multiple teeth. Even if you’re missing all your upper or lower teeth, dental implants can be used to reestablish a complete and beautiful smile.

People who wear full dentures can benefit in more than one way from getting dental implants. One good thing about dental implants is that they can be used instead of full dentures. Because strategically placed dental implants can support a full arch dental bridge, you can get a solution for your smile that is fixed, can’t be taken out, is stable, and looks natural.

A person with full dentures can also benefit from dental implants because they make the dentures more stable and secure. Specialized dental implants give you a place to attach a full denture. This means you no longer need denture adhesives to keep your dentures from slipping, which can be painful and embarrassing.
