The most advanced technique for missing tooth replacement, dental implants give you the most natural-looking and feeling artificial teeth. Dental implants are attached into your gums, so they give you the appearance and function of real teeth - the best of both worlds!
If you have missing teeth, but your gums and jawbone are otherwise healthy and in good condition, you may benefit from dental implants. The dental implant process is twofold: a titanium metal root is embedded into the jawbone, and after your gums have healed and your replacement tooth has been completed, the dentist attaches the tooth to the screw. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, or several, or even an entire mouthful. And because they are attached directly to the jaw, they function just like natural teeth, meaning they don’t slip or move like dentures. Dental implants offer comfort, security, and the best in artificial teeth appearance.
If there is one downside to dental implants, it’s the wait time between the screw implantation procedure and the final attachment of the artificial teeth. However, Dr. Johnson can eliminate that wait time, giving you same-day results for your implants!
Dr. Johnson is proud to offer “Immediate Load Implants”, a revolutionary new way to get immediate results from your dental implant choice. Once the screw is implanted in the jawbone, Dr. Johnson attaches an implant with a temporary crown already in place. That means no waiting and no spaces in your smile - just same-day results.
Not every implant patient is a candidate for immediate loading, but Dr. Johnson will guide you through the process and recommend what’s best for you.
Whether you have just one missing tooth or want to consider a whole new smile, let the experts at Tawas Bay Dental show you the benefits of dental implants - you’ll be sure to leave smiling!
