Your teeth are more important than you think! When they’re missing or damaged, you have a higher risk of developing oral health issues such as:
- The inability to talk and chew properly
- Bone loss
- Jaw pain
- Gum disease or infection
If you have recently extracted a tooth or need to replace missing or damaged teeth, we offer dental implants as a solution to restore your smile and prevent these problems from occurring.
Dental implants are made with high-tech, biocompatible titanium to create a strong foundation for your new tooth. For the implant procedure, our doctors evaluate the implant site and use modern protocols to safely place them in your jawbone. Afterward, an abutment is attached to the implant, which will later be used to connect a dental crown that resembles a natural tooth. The result is a durable, natural-looking smile.
Following the procedure, our doctors will encourage you to take good care of your new implants, just like how you would care for your natural teeth; this will ensure that they last for years to come.
Don’t let missing or damaged teeth impact your confidence or oral health; schedule a consultation with Lahaina Smiles Dental today to see if implants are the right restorative solution for you!
