Dr. Brian Coats offers dental implants to replace teeth. Dental implants are a favored and effective way to replace missing teeth and restore your mouth to its natural condition and attractiveness. Care is taken in designing your implants, and they are designed to blend in with your other teeth.
Losing your teeth can have a devastating effect on your Dental Health and your personal appearance.
When you lose one or more teeth, and you don’t replace them, the remaining teeth can drift out of place. This can lead to a change in your bite, decay, gum disease, and loss of other teeth. The remaining teeth are also forced to function under a heavier load, which leads to excessive wear that can cause numerous other problems to your teeth.
Dental Implants can be an effective method to replace one, several, or even all your teeth. Each implant consists of a metal anchor that is inserted into the jaw bone and locks in the bone. A protruding post is screwed into the anchor, which is outfitted with an artificial tooth (crown). The crown is then cemented to the post, which functions, looks, and feels like a real tooth.
Implants can also support a bridge, replace a partial denture, or secure a complete denture. If you are considering dental implants, it is recommended that you discuss this treatment thoroughly with your dentist.
