Missing teeth not only changes the way your smile looks, but it can also affect the health of your mouth. Patients often focus on the cosmetic aspect when deciding which replacement option is best, but it’s just as important to consider long-term health benefits. Dental implants are the closest replacement to your natural teeth, because the implant mimics the missing tooth’s root and stops the negative effects to your health.
Healthy teeth can shift to compensate for the gap left by missing teeth, which alters your bite and causes extra stress on the remaining teeth. The risk of losing more teeth is increased, and over time your jaw bone can begin to deteriorate where the tooth used to be.
When you’re missing teeth, dental implants are a permanent solution that help to stop unnecessary wear and damage to your healthy teeth and jaws. Carnazza Dental Medicine offers comprehensive implant dentistry, as Dr. Carnazza can both place and restore your implants. That means you get the care you deserve from the team you trust, from beginning to end.
First a medical grade titanium fixture is surgically placed into your bone. The implant then begins to bond to the bone during healing which only takes a few months. We’ll monitor the healing process and once complete Dr. Carnazza will create a customized dental restoration enhancing both function and aesthetics to your smile. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Along with traditional dental implants, we also offer Implant-retained dentures or overdentures. Eliminate embarrassing slips of your denture and feel more secure. There is no need for messy denture adhesives when you have an overdenture.
