At Easton Family Dental, we offer both placement and restoration of dental implants in our office. Our patients appreciate the convenience of having the entire procedure completed in one location.
Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth. Implants can be used to replace missing front and back teeth, stabilize a loose denture, and build an entire new smile.
Dr. Berman is dedicated to providing our patients with the most natural, best-looking and comfortable teeth possible. Whether it is a single missing tooth, stabilizing a loose denture, or an entire mouth of dental implants, Dr. Berman will make you feel comfortable throughout the entire implant process.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant can be used to replace a natural tooth that is lost due to trauma, decay or gum disease. A dental implant consists of three parts: the implant, a titanium root that replaces your natural tooth’s root under the gum; an abutment, which is the foundation on which your new tooth will be seated; and a crown, which is the tooth that is visible above the gum.
How can Dental Implants help with dentures?
By securing 2, 4, or 6 dental implant posts into the jaw, your existing denture (after retro fitting) or new implant denture can clip into place. Each additional dental implant past 2 implants offers additional stability and can decrease the amount of denture material present.
The clips are ball and socket connectors which work a lot like a trailer hitch going into place. This gives the patient a greater degree of freedom to eat the foods they enjoy, as well as the security of knowing their denture will stay in place while talking.
