If you are missing teeth or wear dentures, you may be a candidate for dental implants. These tiny prosthetics act as structural replacements for the roots of lost teeth to create a foundation for a dental crown or to stabilize dentures.
As a service to our patients, Dr. Hunter Edwards places and restores dental implants in our facility. He has completed advanced training in supportive procedures such as bone grafting and augmentation to improve implant retention.
Many of our dental implant patients with complex restorative needs schedule longer appointments to complete the majority of their treatment in a single visit. We also have Dental Sedation options available for patient comfort.
Single Tooth Replacement
Dental Implants are often the preferred approach to replace a single missing tooth rather than a traditional dental bridge, which involves drilling of surrounding teeth that may not need treatment otherwise. A single tooth implant can be restored with a porcelain crown to create a natural-looking result.
Replacement of Multiple Teeth
Dental Implants may also be used to replace multiple teeth, or to anchor a fixed bridge or an Implant Supported Denture. Because they support the bite, they can sometimes help reduce the potential risk of further damage to areas affected by bone loss that occurs after natural teeth are lost.
A True Smile Solution
The possibilities that exist today to rebuild smiles with dental implants are virtually unlimited. If you have multiple teeth that are “in trouble”, missing teeth or loose dentures, dental implants may be the answer you have been waiting for.
