Dental implants closely resemble your natural tooth structure, which makes them perfect for replacing missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options that sit above the gum line, dental implants are supported by prosthetic roots in the jaw. This gives you the ultimate stability as you eat, talk, smile, and laugh.
Another advantage of dental implant surgery is that it helps prevent bone loss. Once you lose a tooth, your body will start to absorb the minerals in the bone surrounding the empty socket. A dental implant tells the body that the bone is still being used and should be left intact. Not only will dental implants help you preserve bone density in the jaw, but they’ll maintain your natural face shape.
Do you still have healthy natural teeth? If so, Dr. West may recommend an implant-supported crown or bridge. Dental implants can be used to replace any number of teeth.
Are your dentures uncomfortable? While we can refit your dentures, there’s only so much we can do if your jaw shrinks from bone loss. For this reason, Dr. West may recommend implant-supported dentures to restore your smile. An has a stable foundation, which means you’ll never have to worry about your prosthetic teeth slipping again.
