Are you interested in replacing your missing teeth? Summit Family Dentistry can help restore your smile. Dental implants are among one of the most popular procedures patients can choose to transform the way their teeth look. Whether your teeth have fallen out or you have had a recent extraction, dental implants offer a chance to regain an outstanding smile.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial root upon which a manufactured tooth can be placed. Implants are used to support the replacement of a single tooth, multiple teeth, or larger prostheses such as dentures, depending on the individual’s requirements and condition. Placement of the implant stabilizes bone levels and may prevent bone loss, resulting in greater long-term support, function, and esthetics. Implants are a superior way to replace missing teeth, as they do not require alteration of adjacent teeth. They are also an excellent way to stabilize a denture.
At Summit Family Dentistry, we can help with implant placement, implant restoration, and implant overdentures. If dental implants are an option for you, we will discuss the process in depth during your initial consultation. To schedule your consultation, get in touch with us today.
Our top priority is to restore, save and repair your natural teeth as they are the best means of a healthy, functional, and beautiful mouth. However, there are some situations in which the need to remove a tooth is unavoidable.
Dental extractions are a common procedure.
Here are a few reasons why we may recommend an extraction:
- A permanent tooth that is unrestorable due to dental disease.
- Impacted wisdom teeth or wisdom teeth that result in hygiene issues.
- A baby tooth that does not naturally fall out that could negatively impact the growth of permanent tooth.
If extraction is recommended, we will make sure you are comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. We offer medication and nitrous oxide to help reduce anxiety. If you are concerned about replacing the tooth, we can explain the options available to you and may suggest additional procedures such as grafting to plan appropriately. It is our main concern, aside from doing an exceptional job, to ensure you are comfortable, happy, and safe. We want to make your experience as painless as possible!
