Missing teeth affect more than just your smile. It can lead to jawbone loss, shifting of neighboring teeth and even gum disease. At Gledhill Dental we are committed to preventing further damage and restoring your smile; to ensure it isn't just beautiful, but healthy too!
Tooth Replacements and Implants
Dental Implants are utilized when some, or all of your teeth are missing. Dental Implants are small titanium posts that replace your existing tooth roots so that your custom crafted teeth, like full or partial dentures, or even full or partial bridges, are properly supported. Other benefits to having a Dental Implant include:
Reducing jawbone loss as a result of missing tooth/teeth
Stabilizes and supports the jawbone and dentures to ensure they remain in their proper position and comfortable
Prevents shifting of neighboring teeth
Reduces the potential for gum disease to develop
Reduces grinding and clenching of teeth
Restores your brilliant and beautiful smile
To better determine if a Tooth Replacement or Implant is right for you, Dr. Gledhill will conduct a thorough examination; including a review of your medical history, impressions and X-rays as needed. Together, your options will be reviewed and a course of action presented.
