Why might dental implants be important for you? Tooth loss is an issue facing many people, especially as they age. More than 35 million people in America are missing all of their upper and/or lower teeth.
Dental implants are changing the way people live!
With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants are tiny titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Evaluation for Dental Implants
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the right choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Drs. Hanneman or Leeman or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
In some cases, dental implants can be restored the same day that they are placed. This is a very exciting new option that we can now offer to qualified patients. Ask us if you might be a candidate for our All on Four procedure!
