At St. Thomas Dental, we are proud to offer dental implants to our patients.
Dental implants are an amazing approach towards getting back your full smile and to getting back your ability to chew your food without worry!
I am a proud member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), which is a special group of dentists dedicated to the Art and Science of implant dentistry. While implants have been placed by dentists for many years, there continues to be a wide variety of ongoing rigorous scientific research in the field that is guiding the way to making implants; their placement, the result to your smile and chewing, and their durability continuously better.
Some people need a single dental implant to replace a single missing tooth. Some people would like several implants to replace several teeth, one for one. While still others need just a few implants to help hold a denture in place. We offer a wide variety of choices when it comes to replacing missing teeth, and together we can help you decide which is the best choice for you.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Part of that care is of course your homecare. Among other practices we will guide you on, you will still need to brush your teeth, floss, and use mouthwash daily. Additionally, regular dental checkups and cleanings are also important to maintaining good dental health, including your new amazing implants.
