In cases where a tooth is too damaged to be repaired, or congenitally missing, it can be replaced by an artificial tooth that looks and feels like the real thing. With a root form made of titanium, implants are more comfortable and secure than traditional partials or dentures for replacing teeth. Implants can also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look and function like your own natural teeth. The individual who has lost their teeth will have the ability to eat virtually anything; knowing that their teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dental implants are truly changing the way people live! With dentures an individual was forced to limit their diets to soft, mushy foods that didn’t interfere with their dentures but now they can bite into an apple, eat steak, and other foods that they couldn’t eat before.
Dr. DeWitt has been restoring missing teeth with implants since 1985. Our patients have reported that Dental Implants have changed their lives and how they can laugh and smile with confidence again.
