Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to permanently replace missing teeth.  Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years.  In fact, if taken care of properly, dental implants can be lifelong restorations, and they are the closest thing to natural teeth that your dentist has to offer.

Here are just a few ways that you may benefit from dental implants:

  • They replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • They restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • They enhance a patient’s smile.
  • They support a bridge or denture, making them feel more secure and comfortable.
  • They resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • They restore or enhance facial tissues.

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.  At Anna Dental, our implant treatment takes place in two phases.  First, the dental implant (root of the tooth)  is placed by an implant specialist.  Then, after some healing, Dr. Ludlow, Dr. De Simone, or Dr. Sharp can attach natural-looking teeth to the implant in order to restore function and enhance your smile!

If you are interested in implants, or think you might be a good candidate for them, give us a call and see what we can do for you!
