A missing tooth can make you self-conscious in your social, romantic, and professional life. It can also lead to other oral health issues.
At South Point Family Dentistry, we can restore your dental implants with natural-looking, custom-made dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Read on to find out why implant-supported restorations are the optimal method of tooth replacement...
Dental Implants Are Widely Considered the Best Solution for Missing Teeth Because They:
Are Strong and Durable
Dental implants are made from biocompatible titanium and are built to last for many years. Although the crowns, bridges, or dentures that are fastened to your implants will need to be replaced eventually, implant posts can last 40 years or longer.
Support the Jawbone
When you lose a tooth, your jawbone will begin to recede in the affected area. This can cause additional oral health issues and make your face look sunken and aged. Implants are artificial tooth roots that deliver regenerative signals to your jawbone to prevent bone loss.
Improve Your Quality of Life
