Missing teeth can be upsetting and often make daily activities like eating and speaking difficult. For patients who are missing one or more teeth and want a more permanent solution, dental implants are a great option.
Implants serve as a replacement for a tooth root to restore strength, stability, and support to your jawbone and mouth. During surgery, the implants are placed in the upper or lower jaw to support restorations. Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges, or dentures—all of which resemble the look, feel, and function of real teeth.
If you have healthy gums and bone, you might be a candidate for implants. Dr. Betcher and our dental team will discuss your options and find a solution that’s right for you.
