Are you missing one or many teeth and are dissatisfied with the appearance of your smile, your inability to eat the foods you love, or the way you talk? Your Olympia Hills Family Dental team is ready to help by offering dental implants to restore your smile and bite.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the gold standard. Implants are a comfortable and permanent dental solution that provide health benefits, look and feel natural, and function seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. As one of our patients said, “It feels like you’ve grown back your tooth!”
Dr. Hafen and his team have specialized training and experience in placing and restoring dental implants.
What are Dental Implants and How Can They Help Me?
There are several services available for patients with missing teeth, but a dental implant, combined with a porcelain crown, is the only replacement option that restores both the tooth root and the tooth crown.
A perfectly placed dental implant fuses with the jawbone to provide needed support. Without this support, the jaw can deteriorate and lead to a more sunken facial appearance and oral health problems.
Secure Smile or All-on-4® Treatment Concept
At Olympia Hills Family Dental, the Secure Smile or All-on-4® treatment concept represents the gold standard in tooth replacement. This system is designed to restore the aesthetics and functionality of your smile and bite.
The Secure Smile system allows patients to enjoy a wide variety of foods, speak naturally, and regain their confidence without worrying about their teeth looking unnatural or out of place. With this technology, Dr. Hafen and his team at Olympia Hills Family Dental offer patients a chance to reclaim their quality of life and smile with confidence.
Dental implants can replace a single tooth and multiple teeth. At our practice, we offer implant-supported dentures to replace full sets of teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which use adhesives that may not always hold your teeth in place when you eat, drink, and talk, dental implants are much more secure and long-lasting because they are bonded with your jaw.
In addition to holding the replacement teeth in place, implants help to prevent the bone loss and gum recession that normally occur over time when a tooth is lost.
Tooth Replacement in Olympia Hills
We suggest that you replace a missing tooth as soon as possible so that you can prevent the movement of neighboring teeth, which will try to fill in the gaps left by the teeth you have lost.
Another restorative dentistry option is a dental bridge, which requires shaving down adjacent teeth that may be healthy. This allows the placement of anchors to hold the dental bridge in place.
