If you lose one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, or another cause, there is hope. Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial roots, placed under the gum, that are designed to either replace a missing tooth or to secure a partial or denture. They are a great option for those individuals that have lost one or more teeth and desire a secure, long-lasting replacement.
Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?
Dr. Moran will first conduct a comprehensive interview with you. You will be asked about your general health and habits:
• Do you have any chronic conditions like diabetes or osteoporosis?
• Do you take any medications?
• Do you smoke?
What Is A Treatment Plan?
Your plan will outline the treatment options you might have, and it will detail the benefits and the drawbacks of each. Once we have decided what you want to do, we can figure out the best way to fit the treatment into your schedule, your budget, and your insurance considerations.
Whatever your desires or needs, the time spent planning is rewarded many times by making sure that you know what to expect at every appointment and that you get exactly what you want for a final result.
