It’s devastating to lose even one tooth. If you’ve lost several teeth or even all of your teeth due to trauma or disease, it impacts everything you do. Eating and talking can be a daily challenge. Dentures are one solution but they come with their own drawbacks. At Phelps Family Dentistry, we’ve helped many patients rediscover what it feels like to have their natural teeth when they have dental implants placed. Dental implants are a tooth replacement method that gives you all the appearance and function of your natural teeth. Because the implants are placed into the actual jaw bone, they replace and act as your own tooth roots.
The bone is there to support the tooth; when you lose teeth you lose bone. Dental Implants replace teeth and maintain bone, thereby maintaining your facial structure and preventing you from premature aging.
The Dental Implant
Dental implants are surgically anchored into the bones of your jaw. Your own bone tissue grows around the implants so they become fused into the jawbone, replacing the root from your lost tooth. and they function as the root of your original tooth.
With Phelps Family Dentistry’s focus on comfort and convenience, your implant can be placed in the comfort of our office, rather than having you coordinate your treatment with a specialist. Once the implanted post heals, we are able to complete the restoration in the office and send you on your way with a brand new smile!
