Dental Implants are the most predicable and natural way to replace lost or missing teeth and save patients from bone loss. The Doctor will place a titanium “root” in the patients jawbone and once that has healed a crown will be placed on top. The new “root” and tooth will restore function to the patient’s mouth just like a natural tooth would provide. Dental implants bring back the chewing and speaking ability of natural teeth, while preserving the natural bone structure of the face by preventing further and inevitable bone loss following tooth extraction.
Implants are a life-saver for a denture patient, since they allow for greater retention and stability of the denture. They can even replace the patient’s denture with “fixed” teeth for a more stable solution. See our smile gallery for real life implant cases that Dr. Dassenko has completed.
