Dental Implants are a great solution to missing teeth or loose dentures
Dental implants can permanently replace missing teeth. A small screw is placed in the bone where the tooth is missing and a tooth-colored dental crown is placed on top of it. After a dental implant is restored, it is indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
Dental implants can also help improve retention of your loose dentures. After a set of dental implants are placed in the jaw, the denture is adjusted to "snap" onto the implants to significantly improve the fit. This interlocking mechanism is very similar to how snap buttons interconnect, and eliminates any fear of dentures becoming dislodged during eating and speaking.
Virtual Treatment Planning of Dental Implants
If you are interested in dental implants, schedule a consultation at our office. Dr. Nelson will evaluate your mouth and virtually treatment plan your dental implant. Using the latest technology, the dental implant can be virtually designed and the location can be precisely determined. This advanced process will helps to improve accuracy in implant placement and optimize outcomes. In the photo above, Dr. Nelson was able to pre-select the perfect height and width of the desired implant, as well as determine that a bone graft would be needed for this patient.
