Replacing Teeth – Replacing Smiles
Missing teeth can make life difficult, inconvenient and sometimes even embarrassing. Dr. Kling and his compassionate staff would like to help you find the confidence and zest for life you thought you had lost forever with the innovation of dental implants.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an ideal way to permanently replace your teeth because they act just the way a natural tooth does. Comprised of an implant post and a porcelain crown, implants are anchored to the jawbone, and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
To replace your tooth’s root, a Titanium post will be surgically placed into your jaw. Titanium is used both for its strength and because, unlike some other metals, your body accepts it and integrates it neatly into the bone, essentially making the post a permanent part of your mouth. To replace the functioning, visible part of your tooth, we will design and place a porcelain dental crown. Our implant crowns are not only beautiful, they are also created of the most advanced materials for durability and strength – even on areas that receive your full biting force.
Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant. For a successful implant, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
What Benefits are Offered By Dental Implants?
One of the greatest benefits offered by dental implants is better health. Implants create a comfortable bite and reduce chances of gum disease. But best of all is the way dental implants can boost your confidence – they can improve your speech while making you look great! And when you rely on Dr. John Kling to complete your restoration, you can be sure your crown and implant restoration will be expertly placed and that you will be treated in a gentle and caring manner.
