Now patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants will improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the bone. Implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. We offer complete dental implant procedures in our office so Dr. Tran will perform implant placement AND restoration in a location and with a staff you know and trust.
After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Tran can tell you whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. They require adequate bone structure for placement. The first stage of the procedure involves oral surgery in which a titanium post is implanted for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. This process is like the opposite of an extraction. Instead of removing a tooth, we are basically putting one in. Nature will take its course, allowing your bone tissue to fuse with the titanium post. This creates a solid foundation.
Once the implants are secured, Dr. Tran will attach a handcrafted, permanent crown to each post. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life.
