If you have missing teeth and are self-conscious about your appearance, then Dr. Lis Bradley, DDS wants to discuss dental implants. A dental implant is a titanium post that acts as a tooth root and is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. Once placed, this allows Dr. Bradley to mount replacement teeth or a dental bridge. In order for a dental implant to be successful, the patient must have healthy gums. This will require a consultation, moving forward.
Implants provide a strong foundation for a new smile. Because they are planted below the gum line, they are built to last and can last a lifetime with proper oral hygiene. Dental implants have many benefits, such as allowing you to enjoy life without worrying about your teeth, and improving your speech, that missing teeth might have hindered. In most cases, anyone who is healthy enough to undergo tooth extraction is eligible for implants. If you are considering them, talk to us today.
