Why Replace Missing Teeth?

If teeth are not replaced soon enough, problems may develop. Some examples of these problems include:

  • Shifting Teeth
  • Speech Issues
  • Bone Loss
  • Crooked Teeth
  • Facial Sagging

Dental implants offer a way to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and prevent problems from developing in the first place. For a more secure and stable option for your teeth, choose dental implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer multiple benefits to patients with missing teeth. Dental implants:

  • Provide durability
  • Prevent further bone loss
  • Decrease oral health problems
  • Look and feel natural
  • Fill tooth gaps
  • Restore tooth function
  • Provide long-lasting results

Treatment with dental implants ensures that smiles are fuller and healthier. Learn more about restorative treatment using dental implants below.

Dental Implant Treatment

Before treatment, Dr. Gabriel Overholtzer will assess your oral health and conduct an examination of your gums and teeth. He will also review the treatment process which is conducted over several in-office visits.

Dental implants are used to replace one or several missing teeth. Dental bridges and dentures can also be secured with implants for a more comfortable fit.

Dental implants are made of titanium posts which are surgically inserted into the jawbone. During a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the posts fuse with bone tissue. An abutment is placed on the post and is capped off with a dental crown.
