PERMANENT TOOTH LOSS IS ALWAYS SOMETHING DR. THEURER wants to prevent. However, it isn’t always possible. There are things every day, like trauma or disease that can cause permanent damage and loss. Even every day wear and tear can eventually become a problem for some. Regardless of the level of loss, it can cause oral discomfort and a lack of confidence to those who experience it. The good news is that today there are strong effective ways to help.
With beginning discoveries all the way back in the 1950’s, implant dentistry has been around for quite some time now. At the start, scientists simply learned how bones can fuse with titanium, making natural bone support possible. Today, Dr. Theurer uses this original discovery to copy the root and tooth system that your mouth naturally has.
Implants are first placed within the gum line. Depending on what your mouth needs, implants are given 3–6 months healing time to ensure complete and proper fusion. After the implants have healed, the custom crown, bridge, or dentures can be placed. Unlike traditional dentures or bridges, the placement solution is much stronger and long lasting, giving you the confident smile you desire.
As with most dental procedures, dental implants begin with a consultation at Theurer Family Dental to help with any questions and create a custom-tailored plan that best meets your needs.
