Missing teeth can have a big effect on your self-esteem and your oral health. We know. We’ve seen it. Our patients are like family and it’s difficult to see them struggle with the problems that arise from missing teeth including shifting, gum disease, and jawbone loss. Eating your favorite foods, might become difficult, and smiling, too.
Dental Implants –Complete Your Smile at Wright Family Dentistry
There are just about as many ways to lose a tooth as there are teeth in your head. The problem is, just a single missing tooth can cause your oral health to suffer. Regardless of why you lost your tooth (or teeth), from periodontal issues to accident or injury, we can restore your smile with dental implants.
The Dental Implant Process
During a short oral surgery, a titanium post is implanted into your jawbone. Nature takes over, and your bone fuses with the implant creating a root, just like a real tooth. Once the implant has healed, Dr. Wright will attach a crown to the post. This completes your tooth, and your smile! Dental implants mimic nature’s perfect design, and give you a strong, beautiful, functional alternative to a crown & bridge or partial denture.
