In our opinion the dental implant is the best thing that has happened to dentistry. Dental implants have given us the ability to reconnect people with something they have lost. Simply put, a dental implant is a way in which we can replace a lost tooth; from the root all the way to what you see in the mouth. This replacement root may be used for a number of applications. If it is a single tooth that has been lost we can use an implant as a fixture for a new tooth by way of a single crown. For someone who has had to resort to the use of complete or partial dentures, dental implants can be used to fasten down the denture. This will eliminate a loose denture creating a more functional and comfortable fit. The loss of teeth can have a dramatic effect on your life both physically and mentally, and greatly affect your personal life and career. Let us help reconnect you with something that has been lost and replace it with a smile. Come visit us for your implant consult.
