Teeth that are lost to gum disease, cavities, or
trauma from an accident can be permanently
replaced by dental implants – artificial teeth permanently anchored in the jawbone.
Unfortunately bone loss
will always follow the
loss of a tooth.Even if bone is lost from only one tooth, the surrounding teeth will shift. This can
affect your appearance, speech, ability to enjoy food, and your self-esteem.
Because of the special advanced training Dr. Boukas has received, he can
both surgically place and restore the implants with crowns all in one office. This
eliminates the inconvenience and possible confusion of traveling to multiple
specialists. In healthy bone, we can even place the implants and permanent
crowns all in one visit. Let us help you decide whether dental implants are for
you. Like any other procedure, Dr. Boukas will take into account your health,
where the implant is needed, the best implant design, and its suitability for your
lifestyle. In most instances, implants can be the most pleasing, functional and
cost-effective treatment choice.
How can implants help?
- Placing dental implants soon after tooth loss can save bone, teeth, and the look of your smile.
- For people with good overall health and healthy gums and bone, implants can
be an attractive alternative to a denture or bridge.
- Implants really do look and feel just like real teeth.
- Implants help to keep gums looking healthy and young.
