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!

My wife had been going to Chesheim Dental Associates for years and was always urging me to go. When my dentist retired, I decided it was time to try them and none too soon! I broke my tooth and was in need of an immediate repair. Dr. Rothwell expertly repaired my tooth with excellent results. Because I had not seen a dentist in years, many of my previous repairs were failing and I was increasingly aware of my less than good looking smile. With dental problems looming in the future and feeling self conscious about my smile, Dr. Rothwell and I came up with a customized treatment plan. I’m so glad that moved forward with my plan. I cannot say enough about the exceptional care and experience I received. I should have listened to my wife years ago!
