Tooth loss affects everything from your appearance to the way you speak and chew. At Hebron Smiles, we believe that our patients deserve to feel comfortable and confident. Dr. Saleem and our experienced staff go to great lengths to make sure you have the options you need to restore functionality and natural beauty if you have lost a tooth or required an extraction.
Dental implants have been a wonderful development in restorative dentistry, leading to the greatest possible success for patients who need to replace a single tooth as well as those who want to replace an uncomfortable denture.
These tiny root replacements are made from medical grade titanium, the same material used in hip and knee replacements. Placed by our experienced in house implant surgeon in collaboration with Dr. Saleem’s treatment plan, implants will heal into the bone structure that once held natural roots. After full integration into the jawbone, implant restorations feel so much like natural teeth that most patients forget about them. Once implants have become fully stabilized in bone, Dr. Saleem restores the smile with a lifelike crown, bridge, or a denture that affixes to implant posts.
The traditional way of replacing missing teeth has been to restore tooth structure that has been lost. For some time, dentures and bridges had been the gold standard of care. Implants have changed the way we address tooth loss, and have made an enormous difference in the outcome of care. We are proud to provide you with the treatment you need to have the healthy, functional smile you deserve.
Patients consider implants for a number of reasons. One of the primary advantages is that replacement roots can provide a lifetime of stability that allows chewing, smiling, and speaking with full confidence. The versatility of implants makes this treatment suitable for a variety of situations, ranging from singular tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. Because replacement teeth are anchored in the jawbone, there is no risk of a restoration slipping or falling out.
