A dental implant is advanced restorative dentistry that can literally give you back your smile, whether you are missing one or many teeth. An implant mimics the root system of your tooth. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the bone beneath your gums. The bone heals around the post, fusing it into place. Then, a porcelain tooth is anchored to the post. This tooth is not removable. Instead, you care for it in the same way as your natural teeth – through brushing and flossing. It looks and feels completely natural. For dental implants contact us today.
Implant-supported dentures are a solution for you if you are missing many teeth and don’t want traditional, removable dentures. By using a series of dental implants, our doctors can create a set of permanent dentures that are firmly anchored into place in your mouth. You will be able to speak and to eat just as you could with natural teeth, and you won’t have the inconveniences that come with using and caring for traditional dentures.
The gold alloy used by dentists is an excellent material for crowns. It is easily shaped and fitted into place, and it possesses excellent durability, while also being gentle on your other natural teeth that may contact it. If you are in need of a crown and would like a gold crown instead of a tooth-colored crown, the doctors at Garland and Johnson Dental can take care of you!
When injury or decay results in the loss of a tooth, your smile suffers. Having a gap in your smile can cause the neighboring teeth to shift and move into the open space, misaligning the rest of your smile over time. Plus, a gap looks unhealthy and can feel uncomfortable. A porcelain bridge “bridges the gap” in your smile. Our doctors will prepare the teeth on either side of the missing tooth for porcelain crowns. Then, a tooth milled from porcelain, an organic material, is suspended between the crowns, resulting in a newly-completed smile. All three pieces are shaped and shaded to match your other teeth flawlessly, looking and feeling completely natural!
