Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

With modern advancements in the field of restorative dentistry, it is now possible to completely replace missing teeth in a way that mimics the smile Mother Nature gave you. Dental implants effectively replace the entire tooth, including the root that supports healthy bone tissue within the jaw. These biocompatible posts are surgically placed within the jaw to serve as sturdy anchors for custom restorations. They are commonly used to support single crowns, bridges, partials, and even full dentures.

A one-on-one consultation with our doctors will aid in determining which restorative dentistry solution best fulfills your needs. Most patients who are missing one or more teeth are good candidates for dental implant placement. Even if the bone density in your jaw isn’t sufficient to support implants, we may be able to recommend a procedure called bone grafting that allows you to continue with your tooth replacement treatment. Our team is always here to answer your questions and to address your concerns, whether you are interested in a simple cosmetic dentistry procedure or a more comprehensive solution like dental implants.
