October 21, 2013

If you’re missing many or all of your teeth from damage or decay, you know how important it is to have them replaced. A full, healthy set of teeth is essential. Maybe you have dentures and aren’t satisfied with the fit, or know you need dentures and aren’t excited about the prospect.

Implant- secured dentures are another great way we can use dental implants to help restore even more smiles. Since your dentures will be anchored to your smile, they’ll fit securely, leaving you free from the risk of slippage or embarrassing incidents.

If your smile is impacted by a lack of teeth, it’s important to replace them as soon as possible. We can help with dental implants and implant-secured dentures for a secure smile replacement solution. Give us a call to learn more and see if this is the right choice for your smile.

Dental implants are the most stable and sturdy way to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. If you have missing teeth, implant dentistry is a great way to repair and restore your smile. It is important for your overall dental health that you have a full set of teeth. Dr. King Scott’s dental office is here to help by restoring and repairing your smile.

It is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible, because missing a tooth puts you at risk for losing more teeth or even bones.  If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you’ll start by coming in for a consultation. Dr. Scott will assess the state of your smile and ensure that you have adequate bone density to support dental implants.

Titanium posts will be inserted into your jawbone where the replacement teeth will go. They will be allowed to heal as they bond with your jaw over time, creating a strong base for your dental implant that mimics the root of a natural tooth. Once healed, your dental implant will be attached to the post, giving you a complete smile once again. Your replacement tooth will be carefully designed to match your natural teeth, giving you confidence in your smile once again.

Dental implants are a great way to improve the function and appearance of your smile. If you think this could be the right solution or want to know more, give us a call. We’d love to schedule a consultation to see if dental implants can help restore your smile.
