Are you living with a damaged smile? Perhaps injury, disease, or decay causes you daily pain or discomfort. Or, maybe the years have simply been unkind to your smile. You need healing and rejuvenation with advanced restorative dentistry from Dental Designs. With implants, dentures, crowns, bridges, and more available to you, you can get back to your normal life. Imagine pain-free function and a beautiful, complete smile!
A dental implant is actually a small, surgical-grade titanium post inserted directly into your jawbone to provide the supportive structure for a porcelain restoration. Implants feel as secure as your natural teeth, and you’ll care for your restorations just like natural teeth, with brushing and flossing.
Q: WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS TO REPLACE A MISSING TOOTH?
A: By replacing missing teeth either with a bridge or implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and will give your smile back its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, your dentist at Dental Designs places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth, or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
Implant-supported dentures utilize two or more dental implants as the supportive structure to hold them permanently in place. If you have poorly fitting dentures, you know how they can shift and move about when you speak or chew. Implant-supported dentures do not move at all. You may not even have to remove them to clean! Instead, you care for them just like natural teeth, with brushing and flossing.
When you are missing teeth, it makes normal life difficult. You cannot speak or eat as you normally would. More importantly, the supportive structures of your mouth can shrink away, which dramatically alters your appearance. Dentures allow you to speak and eat normally, while keeping the supportive structures of your mouth engaged and active. Dental Designs specializes in perfectly fitting, natural looking dentures and partial dentures, so you can smile freely, eat the foods you love, and continue a healthy lifestyle.
