A dental implant is a natural looking, durable option for patients who want to fill the gaps left by missing teeth.
Implants are gaining in popularity as an effective means of replacing missing teeth. Dr. Kalhs has done training to surgically place dental implants.
Following a healing phase, we then have the tooth structure fabricated that is then attached to the implants. Implants can also be used as a support for complete dentures. They are an alternative to a partial dentures or bridges. By replacing missing teeth you can regain more chewing surface and prevent the drifting and tipping of teeth adjacent to an empty space. This helps to preserve the bone and the other teeth.
Implant supported dentures are alternative to having your own teeth. Titanium implants are permanently placed into the jaw. A denture is custom made using the implants as anchors to firmly hold the denture in place. This allows patients to chew and enjoy all textures of food. We are most pleased to see our patients smile and speak with confidence knowing their teeth are securely in place.
