Improving Your Smile’s Strength & Beauty
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the gums where the tooth used to be. The post will fuse to the jawbone over a period of a few months. Once this occurs, we restore the implant with an abutment and a crown. After the restoration, the dental implant will look like and function as a natural tooth!
A patient must have sufficient jawbone in order to enjoy success with dental implants. Our doctors will work with you to determine if you are a candidate for this revolutionary tooth-replacement procedure.
Crowns & Bridges
A bridge is a device that uses crowns to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, and the crowns are connected to an abutment that is placed in the gap. Because the bridge is cemented to the teeth, it offers more stability and security than dentures but is a quicker and simpler procedure than placing a dental implant.
Gum Disease Treatment
The most common gum disease treatment is called scaling and root planing. This procedure involves deep cleaning beneath the gumline to remove bacteria. We then smooth out the tooth roots so the gums can properly and securely adhere to them, sealing out further bacteria and preventing the development of periodontitis.
