Losing teeth can be incredibly stressful and cause you to feel self-conscious. Gaps in your smile can do more than just making eating and chewing difficult; they can actually prevent you from smiling and laughing freely. In dentistry today, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth because we understand that the health of your entire smile can change with the loss of just one tooth.
Missing teeth puts your remaining teeth in danger because they can drift or throw off your bite, creating more problems.
Dr. Matt Bradshaw will carefully place and restore your dental implants. His gentle and accurate approach provides a great result for our patients and they rave about their outcomes.
Dental Implant Solutions
For many patients, dental implants provide the best solution for missing teeth. Dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth and provide the added benefit of having exceptional longevity. When you care for them properly, dental implants can last a long time – even decades.
Best of all, implants are convenient and easy to take care of. Since standalone implants resemble your natural teeth in every way, you care for them the same way – by brushing and flossing regularly.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants have three different parts. They have a fixture, abutment, and a crown. We surgically implant the fixture into your jawbone and give it time to heal. The abutment holds your crown in place. Your crown completes your smile and your chewing surface.
The placement of your dental implants is much easier than it sounds. In fact, most of our patients report feeling normal in just a few days. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone over time, creating stability. This process, called osseointegration, takes a period of months to completely run its course. Depending on the location of your dental implant, we may need to hold off on your permanent crown until you heal completely.
We will plan for your permanent crown during this time, making sure that it matches your other teeth so that your dentistry is virtually undetectable when you laugh, smile, yawn, or eat.
In some cases, we can anchor bridges and dentures with dental implants. This provides greater stability and ensures a better fit for your dentistry. It also means that you won’t have to worry about slippage or other embarrassing moments.
