Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
At Zahner Dental, our doctors help patients see the value in proactive and preventative maintenance, because there is nothing better than what nature gave us to chew and smile with. If a tooth must be taken out, however, the best replacement is a dental implant. Without a replacement, the adjacent teeth will tip into the gap and the bone of the jaw will melt away. For those patients who are without teeth, implants can have life-changing benefits.
Because we believe strongly in the long-term strength and beauty of implant dentistry, we have made significant investments in the latest technology to make the procedure faster, more predictable, and affordable for anyone who values their dental health. We are able to provide this treatment start to finish in our Ellington office, which means fewer appointments and a seamless transition from implant placement to the final tooth. Plus, with 3D digital X-rays to guide us, we can optimally position the implant for esthetics and function for years to come.
Dental implants are made of titanium, the same material used in joint replacements. The implant is placed in the site where the tooth was removed and a ceramic tooth is attached to the top. The result feels, looks, and functions like a natural tooth. Other treatments, such as bridges, use the remaining teeth for support, which weakens them over time and may contribute to early loss of the supporting teeth. Multiple implants can be used to support a full arch of teeth, restoring superior chewing and confidence to former denture wearers and truly turning back the hands of time!
