Dental Implants

An excellent conservative
treatment for missing teeth

Attempting to hide a missing tooth or teeth can be embarrassing and even prevent you from giving people your great smile. Missing teeth not only affect your smile and confidence but also makes eating and speaking more difficult. Long term problems with a person’s bite can also result in further tooth loss and jaw pain.

The good news is that tooth replacement options are available, and Smile Artisans has a full range of tooth substitution alternatives, including the latest in dental implants. While DR.GUTIERREZ offers multiple reconstructive services, he recommends dental implants as the leading tooth replacement method.

Dental Implants

From start to finish all done by Dr. G

The first step in the process of placing a dental implant is to build a solid foundation for the Implant to be a part of. Once a careful analysis of your oral cavity and bone confirms you are a good candidate for implants, an implant is surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gums. As the gum heals, the jawbone gradually integrates with the implant, creating a solid base. There is no need to modify or connect to any adjacent teeth, as the implant offers support. At a later time, the implant crown and custom abutment is mounted to this secure implant.
