Replace Missing Teeth Permanently

If you have missing teeth or are tired of wearing dentures, consider dental implants. Dental implants are permanent fixtures that replace both the tooth and the root.

Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or all the teeth. They can also be used for implant-retained dentures.

The Dental Implant Procedure

First your doctor will surgically place a titanium root into your jawbone (in the space left by the missing tooth). Once the area has healed and the gum and jawbone have adhered to the root, an abutment will be placed on the root. A custom ceramic tooth is then crafted and permanently seated on the abutment. The tooth is designed to look completely natural and blend seamlessly into your smile.

The result? A tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.

Dental implants improve your health by supporting proper jaw alignment and enabling you to bite and chew. They also reduce your chance of developing gum disease and enhance your appearance.

Our doctors have the education, training and expertise to do both the surgical implant placement and implant restoration in our office. If a replacement tooth on the implant ever cracks or breaks, our doctors can also restore it to health and strength.

If you’re ready to replace missing teeth, once and for all, ask your doctor about dental implants!

I’ve been coming to Chesheim Dental Associates since the mid-80’s. A friend of mine who was very pleased with their experience and results recommended them to me. Originally I came to see Dr. Rothwell because I had broken my front tooth and needed immediate care. After my initial problem was addressed, Dr. Rothwell and I discussed a treatment plan that would keep my teeth and gums healthy for life. The care I received was exceptional and I receive compliments on my smile all the time!
