According to a recent survey, a person’s smile is the feature that makes the most memorable first impression. While that’s wonderful news if you have a beautiful smile, it can be disheartening to hear when you’re missing teeth. Fortunately, with advances in implant dentistry, it’s now possible to reestablish a full set of teeth with results that look, feel, and function like a natural smile. At the office of Mark Helms, DDS, we provide the skilled and experienced care required to help patients enjoy the benefits of attractive and healthy smiles.
An attractive smile contributes to a positive self-image.
As everyone knows, missing teeth adversely impact many aspects of your life. It not only affects your appearance, dental health, and oral function, but an incomplete smile also has consequences on your overall well-being. Missing teeth can make it embarrassing to smile and even more challenging to speak and chew. However, if you have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, decay, or traumatic injury, don’t despair. Our office provides personalized treatment solutions to help rebuild your smile and enhance your quality of life.
The most advanced option in care!
Although dentures and conventional fixed bridges remain highly effective options for reestablishing a complete smile, dental implants represent the most advanced method of care for the replacement of missing teeth. With dental implants, you can once again enjoy all your favorite foods as well as speak and smile with renewed confidence and ease. The reason is that implants behave in much the same way as the roots of your natural teeth and integrate with your jawbone to provide unparalleled support for a customized dental prosthesis. While other methods of tooth replacement also offer functional and cosmetically pleasing results of care, dental implants not only make it possible to replace teeth without involving and having to crown any adjacent teeth, but they also help prevent bone shrinkage in the edentulous (“toothless”) area to help preserve the natural contours of your face. Anything from a single tooth to multiple ones up to an entire set of teeth can be replaced with dental implants. Best of all, dental implants enjoy a success rate of 98%, which is the highest rate of all implanted surgical devices.
