So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and regain that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants, you can!
For most patients, a tooth implant is the ideal replacement for both the root and crown of a tooth. They feel so genuine that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.
A tooth implant is anchored into the jawbone with a sturdy metal post. It doesn’t wiggle around like dentures, and unlike a dental bridge, it guards healthy jawbone and impedes bone recession. After the post is completely enmeshed with the jawbone, the supporting device (called an abutment) and beautiful crown are securely attached to the post. Some patients are able to undergo all three parts of the process at once.
If you’ve lost numerous teeth, you may be a good candidate for implant-anchored dentures. Talk to Dr. King to learn more.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the bright color they were when you were a teenager. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day procedures to at-home treatments. Again, communicate with Dr. King about your goals and budget.
