Change Your Smile For the Better With Dental Implants
Now the gold standard in dentistry, dental implants are titanium posts used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth. By replacing the missing tooth roots, dental implants provide the strength and stability needed so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Additionally, what makes dental implants superior to any other tooth replacement alternative is their ability to support and maintain the jaw bone, preventing bone deterioration and helping preserve facial features.

Placement of dental implants involves a routine surgical procedure. During the surgery, a small titanium post is placed directly into the jaw bone and left to heal. During the healing process, the bone and implant begin to fuse together, a process known as Osseo integration. Once fully healed, Dr. Kirchner will fit the implant with your restoration of choice, which may be a crown, denture, or bridge.
The entire dental implant process goes smoothly because Dr. Kirchner collaborates closely with the oral surgeon who places the implant, and with the dental lab that creates the restoration. It is important to her that you are completely satisfied with the outcome of your new tooth or teeth, and that they feel, function, and look completely natural. By working with a great team of experts, you can feel confident that your new smile will be strong, healthy, and beautiful.
