Nothing can take the place of a healthy set of teeth, but when disease or an accident ends in tooth loss, restoring your smile is an important aspect of health care, and is one more way of making you look and feel your best. Lake Country Dental offers restorative implant dentistry techniques that repair or replace the loss of one or more teeth.
Implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically placed beneath the gums. Following placement, the implants fuse to the jaw bone and act as an artificial root for the tooth. Replacement teeth—singular or grouped on a bridge or denture—are then mounted to the implant. Implants offer stable support to artificial teeth.
Dentures, bridges, or individual teeth mounted to the implants will not slip or shift. The secure fit also helps replacement teeth feel natural and more comfortable.
