The loss of your permanent teeth can be a devastating experience, not only for your oral health but for your self-esteem and overall quality of life as well. At Miller & Wolf Family Dentistry, our doctors and team members want to work with you as soon as possible to restore your smile to its former glory – and there’s no better option today than dental implants! Please contact our Hurt location today to schedule your first appointment, or if you have any questions about this modern, transformative service.
There are several reasons, including:
Traditional tooth replacement services like bridges and dentures only rebuild the crown (the white portion) of each tooth. In contrast, implants recreate both the crown and the root hidden under the jawbone. Because this root helps to stimulate the jawbone, having a new one in place is ultimately better for your health and oral function over time!
There are two distinct parts of dental implant treatment. The first one is the surgical placement of the implant themselves into the jawbone, where they will form a solid bond with the patient’s natural tissue. This procedure will be handled by a trusted oral surgeon or periodontal specialist. Then, once the patient’s mouth has successfully healed from this procedure, they’ll be invited back to Miller & Wolf Family Dentistry so that our doctors can start working on attractive, permanent restorations that will be permanently fixed over the implants.
Our practice offers several restoration options, including crowns, bridges, and implant-retained dentures. Crowns are ideal for individual implants, while bridges can replace multiple consecutive teeth with strategically placed implants on either side of the gap. A denture is ideal for patients who would like to restore multiple implants at once in a convenient and cost-effective way. Our doctors will be happy to help you determine which option is right for your unique smile needs.
