Replacement for Missing Teeth in Lawrence, KS
There are several methods of replacing missing teeth – bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures. Dental implants are another possibility, available from River Rock Family Dental. These implants are a newer teeth replacement option but have proven themselves an excellent choice for stability, natural appearance, and function.
A dental implant is a titanium post surgically inserted into the bone supporting your teeth. After receiving dental implants, the post will gradually integrate with this bone over the next few months. The result is a stable arrangement that allows you to speak naturally and eat anything you like. Unlike dentures, you won’t have to worry about slippage with dental implants.
Dental implants can be inserted individually or used to securely anchor bridges or dentures. Individual dental implants are typically capped with crowns for an attractive, natural look.
While most patients are good candidates for dental implants, the procedure does require sufficient bone quality. If you’re interested in this exceptional tooth replacement opportunity, please contact us at (785) 856-8600 to set up a consultation.
