New Teeth for a New Smile
Do you avoid laughing aloud, smiling, or eating in public because your denture may slip or a space left by missing teeth may show? If so, dental implants may improve the way you feel about your teeth. No matter how many teeth you’re missing, dental implants may make it possible for you eat and speak with comfort and confidence again.

When Teeth Are Missing
You may have spaces in your mouth where teeth were lost or removed or never grew in. Although these spaces may be embarrassing, traditional dental restorations aren’t always the best solution. You may not want to sacrifice the structure of surrounding good teeth to bridge a space. Or, removing a complete or partial denture at night may be inconvenient. Added to this is the discomfort and possible embarrassment caused by a denture that slips. For information on dentures vs. implants, click here. Dental implants to support dentures are also an option for individuals who want the stability of implants created by the tight fitting dentures that are supported by dental implants, while keeping the flexibility of a removable denture.

Consider Dental Implants
If you want a dental restoration that looks and feels as though it’s really part of your mouth, dental implants may be right for you. Used successfully for many years, dental implants anchor prosthetic (artificial) teeth into your jawbone to provide a secure, stable fit. Implants can meet your individual needs can meet your individual needs whether you’re missing all, a few, or only one of your teeth.
