At Strohman dental, we can make your smile whole again. If you’ve suffered tooth loss due to decay, gum disease, or injury, Dr. Shelley Strohman can help you achieve a permanent, beautiful smile with dental implants. Working closely with a dental implant specialist, Dr. Strohman will guide you through the procedure.
The process of getting dental implants doesn’t require the alteration of other teeth, and you won’t need adhesives to keep them in place. Dental implants begin with the placement of titanium posts to mimic the tooth roots. Titanium is a bio-compatible material, allowing dental implants to become a natural part of your anatomy. Once porcelain crowns have been added, your dental implants will look and feel just like real teeth.
Dental implants are extremely durable and long-lasting. You can take care of your dental implants just like your natural teeth—daily brushing and flossing as well as regular dental checkups. With the proper maintenance, your dental implants can easily last a lifetime. Be sure to contact our office today if you’re ready to have your complete smile again.
If you are missing a single tooth or even a row of teeth, implant-retained crowns and bridges can fully restore them. A completely natural looking porcelain crown can be attached to a dental implant to give you a tooth that completely blends into your smile. Additionally, this crown can then be bonded to other prosthetic teeth to create a dental bridge. With either prosthetic, your smile will be whole again, and you’ll be able to enjoy a lifetime of confident smiles.
Multiple implant posts can also be used to support a partial or full denture. These dentures have numerous advantages over traditional ones. Since they are held in place with implants, they’ll never slip, click, or pop unexpectedly. Also, since your jawbone is being supported from below, they’ll maintain their fit for much longer, and they’ll even allow for a much stronger bite capacity. The result is a healthy set of teeth that will be both beautiful and functional for many years to come.
