Dental implants are quickly becoming the standard of care for missing teeth and many people are coming from around the state of New Mexico to see Dr. Beers for this critical quality of life improvement.
One of the keys to good health as we age is to keep as many of our teeth as possible and to replace those lost to disease or breakage so that we can still eat the fruits, veggies and meat that will get us the proteins, vitamins and minerals we need to maintain our health.
Missing teeth cause other teeth in your mouth to drift out of place. This causes crooked teeth, tooth wear, functional and aesthetic concerns. Placing dental implants into areas of missing teeth will preserve your smile’s function and integrity for years.
Dental implants are the closest thing we have to real teeth. They feel more like your natural teeth because they are placed into your jaw just like a true tooth instead of sitting on top of the gum like the false tooth of a bridge or the removable partial or denture that is taken out each night.
Each implant root is supported by and fused with the bone of your jaw, similar to a natural tooth. In fact, implants strengthen your bone and work to preserve the integrity of adjacent teeth. They are a compliment to your entire smile.
Whether you are missing all of your teeth or just one, dental implants offer the most reliable and effective way to replace them and they outlast any other type of tooth replacement available.
Implants can support a variety of tooth replacement restorations, including:
- Porcelain Crowns
- Dental Bridges
- Implant Retained Dentures
Rebuilding your smile is a tremendous responsibility that Dr. Beers takes seriously. That is why he has invested in 3-Dimentional cone beam radiography to properly understand the amount and type of bone you have available as well as using that information to create an incredibly accurate guide to place your implant in the best position for your mouth.
