If you're embarrassed by missing teeth, we offer several options for replacing teeth and helping you smile again. One type of replacement that’s very popular at our Lead dental office is stable, durable dental implants.
Dental implants are a replacement root to which new teeth are attached. An implant is usually made of titanium, a safe, strong material that bonds securely with your jawbone. A skilled oral surgeon places the implant in your jaw, the implant is allowed to heal, then Dr. Stone makes the tooth functional by pairing the implant with a crown, bridge, or dentures.
We'll Find the Implant Treatment That Fits Your Needs
Dental implants can be used to:
- Replace multiple individual teeth
- Replace a single tooth
- Replace multiple teeth by supporting dentures or a bridge
To use implants to secure a denture, we place the implants at certain points along the jaw, then attach them to your denture. No more annoying slips and no more messy adhesives! Your implant-supported denture will fit better than you ever thought possible.
Since the titanium roots of the implant are firmly secured in your jaw, they stay in place without having to be attached to other teeth and without the need for dental adhesives. We think you’ll be amazed at how natural your dental implants look and feel once the process is complete!
Dental Implants Support Good Oral Health
It’s true that dental implants will make your smile look amazing. But they also offer other benefits:
- Implants look natural and function like real teeth.
- They support natural bone tissue to prevent your jawbone from breaking down.
- Implants are very durable and can last for years.
- Dental implants support surrounding teeth and keep them in proper position.
Implants will also help you avoid many oral health problems that can occur when a tooth is not replaced. Implants protect your dental health, restore your smile, and hold up to the wear and tear of daily life.
