If you’re missing teeth, you don’t have to live the rest of your life with an incomplete smile. Dental implants are a durable, natural-looking alternative to bridges, partials, and full dentures. Because they are permanently fixed to your jawbone, dental implants look and function just like your natural teeth. We also use dental implants to anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures and prevent shifting.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Gordon will evaluate the condition of your gums, jawbone, and existing teeth to determine whether you’re a candidate for dental implants. In order to secure the dental implant, Dr. Gordon will refer you to a qualified oral surgeon who will implant a titanium post into your jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Then nature steps in, and the bone fuses with the titanium post, creating a solid foundation for the implant.
After the implantation procedure, we will secure permanent crowns to each post. Using CEREC technology, Dr. Gordon can design, color match, and place your crown in a single appointment, and you’ll be flashing your fully restored, beautiful smile in no time!
