Implants & Dentures
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.
Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
For patients who are missing one or more teeth, dental implants are an excellent solution for attractive and functional replacement. Our doctors team will first determine the number of implants needed. The implants are then placed into the spaces needing the replacement teeth. After the implanted anchors heal properly by fusing with the bone tissue, Dr. Rowe will secure custom designed porcelain crowns to the tops of the implants. The new tooth will look and function just like a natural tooth, easily allowing you to bite, chew, and speak normally. Dental implants also effectively preserve bone mass in the jaw, facial structure, and a properly positioned bite.

We offer custom dentures to help patients with missing teeth maintain face shape, functional jaw alignment, and chewing abilities. These removable dentures fit comfortably over the gums and look natural. We also offer implant-secured dentures, or overdentures, to provide our patients with additional functional support when compared to removable dentures. Through the placement of a few titanium anchors, dentures can be fastened within the mouth and offer the added benefit of stimulating the jawbone to prevent bone loss.
