Accepting New Patients
Losing teeth is not uncommon, but no matter what the cause, it is important that missing teeth are replaced as soon as possible. Stress and strain can do much more damage to a patient’s bite over time, which is why dental restoration should be considered as soon as possible. Different options may be considered depending on dental health and budget, but dental implants are among the most reliable and secure methods of restoring teeth. Full arch dental implants are used to replace the entire upper section of a person’s mouth. Implants can be provided for each individual tooth, or fewer implants can be set into place for a full arch upper denture instead. Implant dentures can help further secure dentures but require less invasive surgery. On the other hand, replacing and restoring individual teeth can be more secure overall. The choice is ultimately up to the patient so it depends on your preferences or your budget overall. Artificial tooth roots or anchors are set into the jawbone and allowed to heal over time. During this period, the gums will heal and the implant roots will meld with your jawbone to create a firm foundation for your artificial teeth. From there, your artificial implants can be set in place and perfected to create a completely seamless and natural-looking smile.
