Healthy teeth can shift positions to account for gaps left by missing teeth. When this occurs, it can throw off your bite, and in extreme cases, can cause bone deterioration. If you’re missing teeth, you shouldn’t have to compromise your health or your smile.
Dental implants are a great solution! Dr. Cook has taken an implant continuum course certified by the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and can place your implant as well as restore the prosthetic tooth once the implant heals.
The Implant Process
The procedure involves a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw, allowing the bone to fuse to the post as it heals. This stops the bone from deteriorating and halts any natural teeth from shifting.
After the post heals, a prosthetic tooth is attached, allowing the post to act as a root, and restoring your smile to its original brilliance. Implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth, and they can last a lifetime.
The entire procedure can be completed right in our office, which saves you the trouble of seeing different dental professionals at a variety of offices. Replace missing teeth with implants and discover a whole new reason to smile.
We have invested in advanced cone beam technology for high-quality 3D images. The cone beam scanner produces a series of images focused on your jawbone, so an implant can be precisely placed in the correct position. This technology is just one of the many ways we combine our talent with the latest in dental innovation to ensure you get the best care possible.
