If you’re missing teeth but don’t want bridges or dentures, we may recommend dental implants. Strong and natural-looking, implants can replace a single tooth or a full set of teeth. They can also anchor partials or dentures, restoring functionality and stopping slippage. Proven effective by 35 years of research and a 90-95 percent success rate, dental implants give you the opportunity to better your life with a stronger, fuller, healthier smile.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Once approved for dental implants, which depends on your bone density and current oral health, you will undergo oral surgery. During this procedure, titanium posts are placed in the jawbone below the surface of the gums, creating a foundation for your prosthetic teeth. After the implant site has healed, Dr. Stolle or Dr. Westphal will place a custom prosthetic on the implant post. Before you know it, you will have a new and improved smile that you can be proud to share.
