What Are The Benefits of Having a Dental Implant Procedure?

Dental Implants offer a full range of benefits for patients seeking a long term solution to missing teeth. Dental implants replace the missing tooth without disruption or damage to the surrounding healthy teeth. In fact, a dental implant actually helps to restore and improve the structure of the jaw bone and can help to prevent future damage to remaining natural teeth. Implants provide patients confidence that their teeth are secure and will not slip while speaking or eating. They are comfortable and permanent and require no additional maintenance other than your routine oral hygiene.

Does Dr. Stevens offer alternative treatments for missing teeth?

Yes. Dr. Stevens offers bridges, dentures, or partial dentures to replace missing teeth. These are removable options that do not offer the security of implants. Theses options require special fittings and thorough daily cleaning. Unlike these treatments, dental implants support your long term oral foundation. Dr. Stevens will work with you to build a personalized restorative treatment plan that will fit your budget, lifestyle and restore the function and beauty to your smile.
