We are all aware that tooth loss can detract from one’s appearance, but it also makes it difficult to chew and speak. Additionally, if left untreated, tooth loss will usually lead to other serious issues such as a loss of facial structure, deterioration of the jawbone, undesired tooth shifts and bite imbalances.
At Dental Arts Associates, we specialize in providing our patients with top-quality restorations and replacements that leave you with a smile to be proud of. In the case of tooth loss, dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. They are designed to restore the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Dental implants use a titanium metal structure that is surgically implanted into the jawbone and supports a crown, bridge or dentures. The implants will actually fuse to your jawbone, providing stable support for artificial teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, you will never have to worry about your teeth slipping. To receive implants, healthy gums and a strong jawbone are required to support the implant. If you have suffered from bone deterioration, a bone graft procedure may be necessary.
Dental implants can be used for a variety of tooth replacement needs from an entire arch of teeth to single tooth replacement. At Dental Arts Associates, our extensive experience combined with the highest quality implants can provide you with a healthy, beautiful smile once again.
