Pair Your New Teeth With Implants for a Confident Smile

If you are interested in teeth implants, Dr. Parker and the team at River Oaks Dental Care can help determine if they are right for you. We’ll use some of the latest dental technology like digital X-rays to assess your mouth. If you are a good candidate, we’ll refer you to a trusted specialist who will place the implants in your jaw. After a brief healing process during which the implants fuse with your bone, Dr. Parker will anchor your custom restorations to the implants.

In addition to their natural feel and function, one of the biggest benefits of dental implants is their versatility. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or an entire mouthful, implants can support your replacement teeth. You can use them with:

  • A Porcelain Dental Crown This option is used to replace a single tooth. We will match the crown to the same shade as your other teeth. It will look completely natural. You’ll get your smile and virtually all your chewing power back.
  • A Fixed Dental Bridge – A bridge is a good option for replacing several adjacent missing teeth. You’ll feel more confident in public without worrying about how the gap in your smile looks.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures Your new teeth will securely clip to a bar on top of your implants. They’ll stay firmly in place while you’re wearing them, so you’ll never have to worry about them slipping or coming out and causing you embarrassment.

In addition to being versatile, implants also protect the integrity of your jawbone. Restorations alone can’t do that. When you get implants, they serve as replacement teeth roots. Like natural tooth roots, they stimulate your jaw to keep it healthy. This reduces the likelihood of bone deterioration. You avoid the sunken cheek look, which is common with widespread tooth loss. You’ll look younger for a longer time!
