Even with our modern dental care, many of us still lose teeth due to decay or injury. Crest Hill Family Dental offers dental implants as an option over traditional bridges and dentures for these lost teeth.
Dental implants fuse to the bone, becoming a permanent part of your mouth, looking and feeling like your original teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or even as anchors for entire sets of dentures. Your remaining teeth are unaffected by the implant, which helps with the long-term health of your mouth.
With poor fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing your speech to be affected and create sore spots and generalized discomfort. Dental implants allow you to speak with confidence. Dentures can also make chewing difficult, therefore compromising nutrition. Dental implants function much like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain. Dental implants can give you back your smile.
While dental implants are not for everyone, they help many of the patients at Crest Hill Family Dental. Dental implants are provided on a case-by-case basis, which is why it is important that you make your appointment to meet with Dr. Raia to see if this procedure is the right one for your smile. Call us for an appointment.
