Missing teeth can cause various other problems with your oral
well-being. They do not just alter the appearance of your smile. They
provide the ability to chew foods properly to get the most nutrients out
of your food. Dental implants are the solution to replace one or many
missing teeth. They come up through the gums and give the appearance of
natural teeth, unlike bridges or dentures that sit on top of the gums.
Those without any teeth can benefit from implants, as the problems of
slippage and tilting are gone, and no longer do dentures need to be
taken out at night. We handle the entire process from implant to crown
placement, so you will likely not be inconvenienced in being referred to
Some patients require special preparation, called sinus or ridge augmentation, before they are able to receive implants. In most cases, we can also provide this procedure directly, saving you time and the complications of dealing with another specialist.

We design dentures to fit as they should to prevent future problems with slipping and tilting.

Let us give you dentures that have a great fit and a natural look.
Sometimes a tooth can't be saved and needs to be extracted. For a replacement, a dental implant is the best solution. Not all patients are suitable candidates for implants, having insufficient bone density in the jaw. As bone loss starts immediately after extraction, it is important to retain the bone mass. We remedy this problem by filling the extraction site with a bone graft to preserve strong bone for any future needs of dental work.
Don't live with missing teeth any longer! Call (575) 522-1983 for a no obligation implant consultation today to determine your suitability for dental implants.
