Visit Heather Ridge Laser Dentistry to discover the benefits of dental implants – your ultimate solution for replacing missing teeth!

What Are Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are small, screw-shaped titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone. As the area heals, the implant integrates with the surrounding bone and tissues, providing an incredibly secure and stable foundation for implant restorations designed to replace one, some, or all of your teeth.

What Are the Types of Implant Restorations?

At Heather Ridge Laser Dentistry, we proudly offer single implants, implant-supported bridges, and implant-supported dentures.

  • Single Implants: As their name implies, a single implant replaces a single tooth. It comes with an aesthetic crown attached to a single implant made to match your smile for seamless results.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: If you are missing two or more adjacent teeth, an implant-supported bridge is an excellent solution to restore your smile. Implants on each side of the gap support prosthetic teeth that look and function like your real teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: These durable restorations draw on the strengths of traditional dentures and implant dentistry. Four to six implants placed strategically in your jaw can support a complete denture with unmatched stability, function, and durability.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

  • They offer stability comparable to natural teeth, restoring your ability to chew and enjoy your favorite foods without restriction.
  • They act like real teeth, allowing you to speak confidently without slurring your speech or worrying about your teeth shifting out of place.
  • They mimic the function of natural tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and preventing bone loss.
  • Filling a gap in your smile prevents the neighboring teeth from shifting out of alignment and lowers the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ discomfort.
  • Your replacement teeth support your facial structure, maintaining your youthful contours and preventing a sagging, aging appearance.
  • Your implant restorations can last a lifetime with proper care – just brush and floss as you usually would and visit Heather Ridge Laser Dentistry for your routine dental exams and cleanings.
  • Replacing missing teeth with implants will enhance your smile and boost your confidence.
