The loss of a tooth, for whatever reason, can have a significant effect on a patients’ physical and psychological well-being. Dental Implants enable patients to recapture the structural component of their teeth, as well as the beautiful essence of their smile.
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements, and when done by an expert restorative dentist such as Dr. Judy they can be virtually indistinguishable from other teeth. Whether replacing a single missing tooth, retaining a removable prosthesis, or restoring an entire mouth, dental implants are the most predictable long-lasting, cost-effective method of treating these conditions.
Surgically inserted into the jawbone; Dental Implants act as an anchor within the mouth. Over time the jaw will attach itself to the Implant, enabling dentures or other replacement teeth to be permanently fastened into place.
Implants have changed dentistry forever. We now have a proven viable option to not only replace teeth but to preserve bone and supporting structures through dental implants. This is the single most exciting aspect of dentistry this decade. Implants were first utilized in the US in the early 1980s. Patients had to undergo extensive surgery and wait up to a year before finishing their treatment.
Dental Implants provide outstanding aesthetic and functional benefits to patients. Reduced irritation and oral sores, (generally associated with dentures) as well as increased support, stability, and biting pressure are all experienced after treatment.
