Missing teeth impact your smile, ability to eat and self-confidence. Dental implants and dentures give patients a viable option for tooth replacement.
A dental implant replicates a tooth root, it extends into the jawbone and provides stability. Implants are made from titanium posts and after placement, they integrate with the bone over the course of 3-4 months. Implants provide an anchor for artificial teeth such as crowns/bridges or dentures. Implants also help maintain facial structure because they preserve bone.
Implant-retained dentures greatly improve the stability of removable dentures. Dr. O’Shea can place multiple dental implants to support an entire arch of teeth with an incredible level of stability. This method dramatically increases chewing function. Existing dentures can also be retrofitted with attachments for implants which helps with denture stability.
