For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But today, Dr. Krauspe is pleased to provide dental implants that can replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Dental implants are replacement roots and teeth that are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patientís smile. Implants provide a strong, durable foundation for fixed or removable partial or complete dentures, all made to match your natural teeth.
Advantages to dental implants include:
Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Improved self-esteem. Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
Improved oral health. Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving your long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
Durability. Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
Convenience. Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing your dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep your dentures in place.
