So you’ve lost some teeth and now hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and reclaim that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, you can!
For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal solution. They feel so real that implant recipients forget they’re even there. An implant is a titanium post anchored into the jawbone. The artificial tooth is affixed to the post.
What makes dental implants so good are that they look and function like a natural tooth. Even better, the titanium post prevents bone recession, because it is anchored in the jaw where the root used to be.
If you’ve lost more than one tooth, you may be a candidate for implant-anchored dentures. With these, the replacement teeth are supported by the implant, providing a permanent, far more secure restoration.
Another way to go back in time is to whiten your teeth to the dazzling color they were when you were an adolescent. There are several different types of tooth whitening systems, from same-day in-office procedures to at-home treatments you can do yourself.
