While we want to preserve natural teeth whenever possible, Brit Phillips DDS also specializes in dental implants for our patients that have lost some or most teeth in their smiles. Dental implants are the premium option in restorative dentistry, offering a more natural and functional tooth replacement alternative to dentures or dental bridges.
Dental implants are as close to natural teeth as possible. They are designed to mimic your natural tooth structure. The titanium post that is surgically placed into the jaw serves as a new “root” for your tooth. This post adheres to the bone, becoming a permanent part of your jaw. Once the surgical site has healed and the post is secure, we build a new tooth that is attached to the post. A beautiful dental crown that matches your smile creates the body of the tooth, replicating the tooth that you lost.
Dental implants function and look like natural teeth. They can last for decades and may be used for single tooth replacements or full mouth reconstructions with dentures or dental bridges. Our patients love the permanency that implants offer and do not need to worry about slipping dentures or removing their “teeth” for cleaning.
