Sometimes our patients have to part with one or more of their natural teeth. This is regrettable because the loss of a tooth can affect a person’s self-esteem and have more serious repercussions in the future.

Here at Acre Wood Dental, we want you to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, so that means restoring your smile is a high priority for us. A great solution for tooth restoration is the dental implant, which offers many of our patients the ability to enjoy their favorite foods and the peace of mind of having a beautiful smile once again.

Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw bone to substitute as the tooth root. Next a connector piece called an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant, connecting it to the replacement tooth. A crown is custom-made for the replacement tooth, and it matches the appearance of the rest of your teeth.

Implants are remarkable because they serve as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth because they are inserted into the natural bone, which actually grows around the post, permanently holding it in place.

If you’ve been self-conscious about your smile, implant dentistry is a strong and stable solution that can help your smile get back to the way it used to be.

Dental implants help you to achieve optimal oral health, function and appearance. They look like natural teeth, and they function like natural teeth. Implants give you a long-term solution to restoring your smile, while also helping to protect and maintain healthy bone, enabling you to retain the natural shape of your face.
