Why Choose Dental Implants?
The base of your dental implant is a small titanium post. Because the post is surgically implanted, dental implants are far sturdier teeth replacements than removable dentures or fixed dental bridges. Dental implants are a popular choice for restoring missing teeth as they provide the following benefits:
• Fixes missing, chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
• Restores bite function
• Preserves bone in the jaw
• Supports a denture, making them more secure and comfortable
• Maintains the natural aesthetic of your face
• Specifically designed to look and feel like your natural teeth
Implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, and several implants posts can even support dentures and bridges, for more comprehensive tooth restoration. For patients with missing teeth, Dr. Lubritz is proud to offer Zimmer dental implants – one of the largest, and most trusted, dental implant brands in the world.
