An incomplete smile may mean you’re smiling less than you’d like to be.  Luckily, Dental Implants and Bone Grafting Technology have come a long way.

Dental Implants

A Dental Implant consists of an artificial titanium tooth root and a porcelain crown false tooth that is anchored to the titanium root. The artificial titanium tooth root is implanted surgically, and then allowed to heal before the porcelain crown false tooth is attached to it.

The latest in Dental Implants can make a huge difference in the functioning of your teeth. Any gaps between your teeth can do more than just damage your appearance and self-esteem. These spaces can be a breeding zone for bacteria, plaque and other material that can cause serious oral health problems.

Dental Implants will fill any gaps in your smile while providing a strong, fortified foundation for your teeth. Dental Implants feel exactly like natural teeth and will give you back the  confidence to smile, eat, laugh, and talk.

Bone Grafting

Commonly used in conjunction with Dental Implants, Bone Grafting allows for the complete restoration of a missing tooth. Patients who have been missing teeth for a long period of time may not have the necessary amount of bone underneath the missing space. In this case, Bone Grafting is necessary to create new bone segments for Dental Implants to properly attach.  Dr. Wassenaar uses the very latest PRP technology to maximize the success of your graft.
