Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile
Dental implants solve the problem of missing teeth. From the front of your mouth, where they can be
seen, to the back, where they provide chewing stability, implants can help you restore an inviting and
healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which rest on top of your gums, dental implants are
anchored under your gum line. The “tooth” installed on an implant looks life-like, because it pokes
through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can replace multiple
lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures
with teeth that don’t shift when they talk, and don’t require removal at night. After an oral surgeon places
a titanium post, Dr. Ruiz will fashion a beautiful, natural-looking restoration. Get the smile you long
for – permanently! (Not all people are candidates for implantology, so contact us to schedule a consultation.)
Overdentures – No More Messy Denture Adhesives!
People who wear dentures will explain that having their teeth slip, tilt, or slide while they’re eating drives
them crazy! They use denture adhesive in an attempt to keep their teeth from moving around, but this is a major
irritant for them. Now, at Monte Vista Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, we give our denture patients an
alternative – overdentures. Utilizing dental implants as the underpinning for your dentures, your teeth will
become “locked” into place so they can’t shift. Yet they easily snap off for cleaning. Say good bye to messy
creams! Ask us if you are a candidate for overdentures!
