Replace missing teeth with a lasting dental restoration service such as dental implants. Dental implants are built to replace missing teeth with lifelike artificial teeth that look and function just as normal teeth would. With the proper location, a dental implant can be nearly impossible to notice amongst your other teeth.

Dental implants are customized to fit in spaces where missing teeth have left gaps. Unfortunately, if the gaps left by missing teeth are not filled in, they can become home to plaque, food residue, and other hazardous materials to your teeth and gums. Not only that but teeth help to keep your gums in place. Missing teeth can destabilize the gums and possibly cause other nearby teeth to shift or move around.

Furthermore, your jawbone can deteriorate and decay over time if it does not have the support of teeth. Dental implants can repair the disorder by directly installing into the jawbone for a durable hold that strengthens both the bone and the implant’s hold with a process known as osseointegration. With the proper care and avoidance of many of the same common risks and hazards associated with regular teeth, dental implants can last a lifetime.

With dental implants, your smile will not only look better, but it can be healthier too. If you would like to meet with Dr. Kenneth M.
