What is dental implant therapy?

October 31, 2015
Dental implants don’t require you to cut the teeth on either side.

Preserving your health and appearance is important and not replacing your missing teeth with dental implants can cause many problems from – loss of natural facial contours, to facial wrinkles and loss of your youthful appearance. If you don’t replace missing teeththis can accelerate bone loss.

Tooth replacement therapy that mimics nature

Dental implants, unlike bridgework, don’t require you to cut the teeth on either side; it is a lone standing restoration. Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth and provide a foundation for a crown. This allows you to have the look, feel and function most like natural teeth. The implants are made with materials well accepted by the body allowing the bone to form a natural mechanical bond with the dental implants.

We offer 3D x-ray technology prior to your surgery. At Lakeview OMS we accept all insurance and have the lowest prices in the city. We can also make the entire implant crown in one day if needed.
