Radiate a full, natural-looking smile to the world once again. A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can restore a single tooth or and entire set of teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post directly into your jawbone by one of Baker & Graham Dental’s trusted specialists. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom created for you. Implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures, such as gum sores, denture adhesives, shifting, difficulty speaking, and difficulty chewing. Implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap. Talk to Dr. Graham to find out if implants are right for you.
Enjoy a wonderful alternative to traditional dentures that eliminates typical problems like gum sores, shifting, difficulty speaking, dental adhesives, and difficulty chewing. Feel great with the solid fit provided by implant-supported dentures. Your biting pressure distributes more like your natural teeth than with traditional dentures ― stimulating the supportive structures of your teeth and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. If needed, you can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, flawless implants.
Your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress during your lifetime. resulting in discoloration, chipping. and cracking. Crowns restore your teeth and your smile to look brilliant once again. Porcelain crowns can be made from either porcelain pressed to metal or from porcelain throughout and can be shaded to match your other teeth beautifully. Crowns made of precious metal are also an option. After some tooth preparation, crowns are specially fitted to restore functionality and to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Sometimes gum disease, injury, decay, or simple wear results in the loss of a tooth. Gaps in your smile can create significant problems for your dental health if not corrected. Missing teeth cause you to chew differently and may trigger mouth pain. As your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. Neighboring teeth may begin to move about, creeping into the gap and resulting in discomfort, pain, and more problems down the road. Drs. Baker and Graham create a lifelike, functional bridge to correct your smile, restore your bite, and alleviate your discomfort. A bridge is created out of metal, alloys, or porcelain and anchors to existing teeth or crowns on both sides of the gap as its supportive structure. A bridge is a semi-permanent solution, meaning it can only be affixed or removed by a dentist and is a long-term, restorative solution to your damaged smile.
