We Revitalize Incomplete Smiles
Dental implants are an extremely popular and long-lasting option to replace missing teeth. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. The dentists at Holly Dental Associates not only restore dental implants, but also place the implants to give patients with missing teeth an improved smile and a new lease on life!
Do dental implants look natural?
Yes! Implants look and feel completely natural. A titanium post inserted in the jawbone functions as a tooth root, securing a custom crown or prosthetic. The dentists often recommend dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth and to secure dentures, partials, and bridges.
Why should I consider dental implants?
In addition to providing a long-lasting and natural-looking replacement tooth option, dental implants deliver the following benefits:
- A more youthful appearance
- Existing teeth stay where they belong – no drifting
- No need for messy adhesives to hold teeth in place
- No loss of bone mass – implants encourage jawbone retention
- Renewed self-esteem
- No diet restrictions based on limited function
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
A comprehensive exam will determine your candidacy. Most patients with missing teeth qualify for dental implants. Ideal candidates have good oral health and sufficient jawbone mass to anchor the small implant posts. An oral surgeon can perform procedures to shore up the bone mass of patients with insufficient structure.
The implant process – what happens?
