If your smile is not what it used to be this may be the result of missing or lost teeth. You may have always had a gap toothed smile, or have most teeth as the result of neglect or decay. These spaces can impede your tendency to laugh, smile or merely want to open your mouth to speak in front of others. As you could imagine, a matter as seemingly simple as missing teeth can play havoc with a person’s personal and professional life. Patients with these problems can now avail themselves of the newest and safest of techniques to replace missing teeth.

Afterward, crowns or porcelain caps are attached to these posts. This offers patients a more permanent and long lasting solution than traditional crowns or removable bridges. And unlike removable bridges or dentures, these non moveable dental implants look and behave as closely to natural teeth as possible.
