Dental Implants & Dentures

When we have broken, missing, or discolored teeth, it can cause us to feel less confident.

It can also interfere with eating, talking, the healthy alignment of our teeth, and the health of our gums. Modern dentistry has come up with many solutions to help people who are missing some or all their teeth.

Dentist Explaining Dental Implant Procedure To Pat

Dental Implants

Your Today’s Dental dentist can remove your remaining natural teeth and surgically attach realistic looking false teeth directly to your jawbone using implanted titanium screws. The screws used to secure the implants replaces the root part of your natural teeth, creating a stable anchor for your new teeth. These “implanted” teeth can replace all or some of a of your natural teeth. Over time, the titanium implant fuses to your jawbone, which creates a strong foundation and can help prevent future bone loss. Dental implants can have several benefits:

  • Easy to care for and clean
  • Feels and looks like natural teeth
  • Smile, laugh, and speak confidently
Single Dental Implants

Bridge Implants

Implant Bridge
