Implants Restoration – Smile Again With Confidence
Dental implants are artificial teeth attached to surgically embedded anchors and are among the most reliable methods of replacing missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures or bridges, dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone where they ultimately fuse with the bone. An abutment is then placed and fitted with a crown to ensure the most natural appearance possible. If you are considering dental implants and looking for a qualified implant dentist, Dr. Handel can refer you to an oral surgeon he trusts to perform the implant surgery. When you have healed from the procedure, he will then fit you with natural-looking, custom-crafted replacement teeth.
If you’re looking for a more permanent alternative to traditional bridges and dentures, dental implants may be the ideal solution for you. Unlike removable devices, dental implants prevent bone deterioration in the jaw and keeps the adjacent natural teeth from shifting.
The placement of dental implants is a team effort requiring the services of several specialists. The clinicians involved must be highly qualified and meet the highest standards of dental care. However, dental implants are not for everyone. An ideal candidate must be in good health, be free of gum disease, have adequate jaw bone, and be willing to commit to regular dental visits.
If you would like to find out if you are a good candidate for implants or learn more about the procedure, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Handel. We can’t wait to help you make your smile as beautiful, natural-looking, and strong as it can be.
