If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can be your smile solution. Missing a tooth can cause pain, embarrassment and functional problems with your smile. You may notice that your surrounding teeth shift to compensate for the missing tooth and you may have difficulty chewing or speaking. In addition to the functional problems a missing tooth or teeth can cause, you may notice some aesthetic changes as well. When the surrounding teeth shift to fill the space of the missing tooth your face shape can change as well. Over time the problem only worsens.
Be proud of your full, natural looking smile once again! A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can restore a single tooth or an entire set of teeth. Simply a replacement “tooth root”, dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post by one of Dr. Rude’s trusted specialists. As the post bonds, it forms a sound foundation to attach your custom crown, bridge, or denture.
Feel confident knowing your dental implants are secured and permanent, providing you a smile solution you can count on. Make your smile beautiful and functional; call us today if you have questions about dental implants.
