If you have lost a tooth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you!
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth. First, an oral surgeon will place the implant post at the site of the missing tooth. Once the gum tissue has healed around the implant, Dr. Winans will fabricate a porcelain tooth to be placed on top of the post. The new tooth looks, feels and functions just like your natural teeth.
Dental implants are also an excellent solution for loose or wobbly dentures. With just a few implants, your denture will snap on securely, eliminating the need for sticky and uncomfortable denture adhesives. This can improve your bite, speech and will help maintain the health of the underlying bone structure.
