DENTAL IMPLANTS and DIGITAL DENTURES
A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry that is done to replace either a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post (similar to the root of your tooth) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone and will allow us to mount a customized crown or crowns to replace the missing tooth or teeth. When replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant may be chosen over a dental bridge to preserve the condition of adjacent teeth. Dental Implants are the closest option we have to mimic a natural tooth.
Missing or damaged teeth can affect your ability to bite and chew effectively, speak properly, and they can also be embarrassing when you interact with other people in the course of your daily life. Dentures can be made to replace multiple teeth or all teeth, to improve esthetics, function and stability. We are now able to acquire extremely precise models of your mouth utilizing the latest in 3D scanning techniques and craft your new dentures with 3D printing technology.
