Complete Your Smile Securely, Beautifully
Dental implants are a unique form of prostheses, because they help to complete the smile by replacing both the missing tooth and its corresponding tooth root. No other prostheses is able to replace both.
Many people don’t realize the many roles healthy teeth roots play, but they actually serve to both stabilize teeth, and to supply the jaw with the nutrients it needs to maintain its structure over time. Without healthy teeth roots, the jaw can begin to shrink, causing changes to the facial structure and misalignment of remaining teeth. It can also cause once well-fitting dentures to become uncomfortable, due to the overall changes in the smile’s structure.
