Dental Implants

Missing teeth can affect so many parts of your life. 

Your self-esteem, your smile, your social life, even your ability to speak clearly. Missing teeth also can very negatively affect your health by forcing you to change diet, and potentially increasing your risks of infection.

There are many options available at Oyster Point Smiles to correct missing teeth. For the most permanent, natural looking, secure and most comfortable solution, we often recommend dental implants.

 What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are a permanent way of replacing your natural teeth with the most natural-looking, and natural feeling custom crafted tooth or teeth. In a brief and fast-healing procedure, a small cylindrical post is inserted into your jaw at the location of the missing tooth or teeth and a temporary implant is screwed into place. During your healing period, A natural process called osseointegration fuses your phone with the implant post, creating a permanent and extremely durable foundation for your new tooth. Dr. Stockburger, carefully crafts a beautiful new tooth to closely resemble your natural teeth, restoring a natural-looking smile.

Since there is no need to alter surrounding teeth to anchor implants, more of your natural teeth are preserved intact, improving long-term oral health. Call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
