Are you missing one or more teeth? Dental implants can help restore your teeth with a customized dental implant system. Dr. Brit Phillips uses Nobel Biocare implants to provide you with a natural, long-lasting smile.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial synthetic tooth root that Dr. Phillips sets into the jaw to hold a bridge or a replacement tooth.
Dental implants are the perfect solution for people who generally have good oral health who just happened to have lost a tooth or teeth because of periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Tooth implants are so natural-looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Or you may have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news. Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!
Under proper conditions, such as placement by a specialist like Brit Phillips DDS, and with diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime.
