Dental & Restorative Implants
Dental implants are essentially permanent, attached teeth that replace, partials, bridges or dentures. A titanium implant is permanently attached to your bone and a prosthetic tooth (crown) is attached to the implant. Implants are preferred to bridges because they can improve your bite without damaging neighboring teeth (like a bridge). Treatment can be finished in 3 to 5 visits over the space of about 4 to 12 months.
If you’ve lost teeth from decay, injury or periodontal (gum) disease, dentures are the solution. Whether partial or full dentures, they’re essential not only to your aesthetics, but also your oral health. In addition to allowing you to eat as if you never lost your teeth, dentures protect against facial sagging that would otherwise occur and give you a more aged appearance, as well as promote your natural speech. Denture maintenance, combined with a regular regiment of proper brushing, can guarantee you a comfortable, healthy mouth for the rest of your life. Please call us today to discuss the numerous available options in more detail.
Crowns, also called caps, are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns minimize physical discomfort and provide support for damaged teeth. Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury.

Continued research has linked gum disease to diabetes, heart disease and low birth weight. In an effort to rid your teeth of the plaque and tartar that causes gum disease (gingivitis) and tooth decay, your dental care hygienist may suggest a regimen of care that requires more frequent visits.
