Implants

Stacks Image 9
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. Today, dental implants are very popular, due to the fact that they provide the same function as your natural tooth root. Surgically placed below the gums, over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual crowns, bridges, or a denture.

Implants offer stability because they perform the same as your natural tooth root. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by Dr. Sullens will help determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
