Missing teeth aren’t just a cosmetic issue, they can cause discomfort, health issues, and destabilize your bite. People with missing teeth often feel self-conscious and try to hide their smile, or keep from smiling altogether. Often people find it’s harder to achieve their career goals when they have missing teeth. Dental Implants can be a great way to replace missing teeth and restore people’s confidence. When properly maintained, Dental Implants can last a lifetime. The Implant is made of an artificial tooth root that supports the new tooth which is made of metal and porcelain in the same color as your natural teeth so no one will be able to tell.
Sometimes Dental Implants may be use to help anchor dentures–particularly the lower dentures that may be susceptible to shifting when your chew or talk. If you are interested in learning more about your options for restoring confidence in your smile, and to find out if dental implants may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Bowers today.
