Implants

Imagine being able to replace your lost tooth, not with removable dentures, but with an implant that looks and feels just like a normal, secure tooth. With dental implants from your Mt. Sterling dentist, you can accomplish this. This procedure has become a popular option in dental reconstruction, with over half a million implants placed every year in the U.S. With their natural appearance and strong fit, dental implants can be your answer to repairing your smile.

Advantages of dental implants include:

  • A secure, comfortable fit that looks and feels natural, without the slipping of normal dentures
  • No other adjacent teeth have to be ground down or disturbed to hold an implant in place
  • You can talk and eat normally without the inconvenience
  • You will no longer feel self-conscious about missing teeth

During the implant process:

  • Your jaw bone area just below your gums is fitted with metal posts.
  • Once in position, the dental implants are mounted securely on these posts, giving you the look and feel of a brand new tooth!
  • Not only will your self-esteem improve, but your oral health will as well.

Implant-Supported Dentures

An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture (a removable partial denture or a complete denture that covers and rests on one or more remaining natural teeth, the roots of natural teeth, and/or dental implants) that is supported by, and attached to, implants. A regular denture rests on the gums and is not supported by implants.
