Dental Implants at Lawrence Park Dental
Current dental implant treatments can change your life. From a single missing tooth to an entire set of teeth, dental implants restore your appearance, speech, nutrition, oral health, comfort, and self-esteem.
Missing teeth can result in changes to the shape of your mouth and the look of your facial symmetry. Gaps in your teeth can impair your ability to eat certain foods and contribute the further loss and degeneration of remaining teeth in your mouth.
A dental implant is made from titanium, an inert metal. Therefore it cannot cause a body rejection. It can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Denture patients can also benefit from this service as implants are a great alternative to loose poor fitting dentures that can result in embarrassing situations.
Implants bond to the jaw, much like the root of a natural tooth and permanently replace a lost tooth. They are gently placed during a simple, short surgical procedure done under local anesthetic. After a healing period of generally 3-6 months, a permanent restoration is crafted to fit on top of the implant, creating a tooth that compliments your smile and restores function and stability.
