After the loss of a tooth, implant replacement is important for the health of the surrounding bone. Guffee Dental will guide you through the process of any implant option, to keep your teeth in working order:
A lost tooth can cause concerns about your appearance, speech and eating. It will also affect the alignment of your remaining teeth, and can cause some deterioration of the jawbone. A titanium implant biochemically joins with the surrounding bone to replace the natural root. A replacement implant for any tooth looks natural and functions fully.
Implant Crowns and Bridges
Sometimes, the best option is to crown your surrounding teeth, and have those crowns support a “bridge” with a replacement tooth or teeth. Our skilled professionals will help you determine if this is the best choice for replacement.
When more than one tooth is missing, you may decide to have a partial denture, anchored by implants on each end. A non-removable partial will look and feel natural, and will work just like your natural teeth.
Implant Support Dentures
Wearing a full set of dentures presents challenges for some people, and implants can help restore confidence. Upper or lower implants can hold everything securely in place, and are available for removable or permanent dentures.
