If you wear dentures or partials, you may miss the security, ease, and comfort of your natural teeth. It's hard to laugh, cough, chew, talk, or even smile without worrying if your partials or dentures will slip. Denture wearers may experience soreness from loose dentures or notice a shrunken appearance in their face as the gums and bones in their jaws recede. Fortunately, you don't have to live with these problems. Dental technology has changed over the last two decades and Dr. Shifman can offer dental implants as a way to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Titanium screws are used as an artificial substitute for tooth roots. Once placed in your gums, the implant can anchor a bridge, denture, or even a single crown in your mouth. Implants are long-lasting and permanent, so they won't slip or move in your mouth and cause injury or irritation.
Since everyone is different, Dr. Shifman will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth, including radiographs and intra-oral photographs, to determine if implants are right for you.
