Our skilled periodontist, Dr. Anne Nicholas, is proud to offer dental implants to help you have the top-notch oral health and smile you have always wanted. Dental implants are top-of-the-line dental restorations that can replace your missing teeth and their roots, fill the gap in your smile, and improve your overall oral health. The best way to find out if dental implants are for you is to call our office and schedule an appointment.
A dental implant is a strong post that replaces the root of a tooth and is made either of titanium or zirconia. After a few months of healing, an abutment is attached to the implant and a dental crown is placed on top of the abutment. Dr. Nicholas will replace your missing teeth and improve the appearance of your smile by placing the titanium or zirconia post into the bone socket of the missing tooth. Dental implants can also attach and support a denture. You need four to seven implants to support the denture
Dental implants can provide many benefits for you: They can help to prevent shifting of teeth and bone loss. They can provide a replacement tooth that looks and feels just like a natural tooth. They can improve your appearance by filling the gap in your smile. They can improve your speech and comfort. They can make eating easier. They can improve your self-esteem, as well as your oral health. They can also provide durability and convenience.
