• Dental Implants

  • If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!

    An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It’s composed of two main parts: One part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is placed on top of the implant.

    In addition to tooth replacement, implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so you have a more natural-looking smile.

    At Moon Creek Dental we utilize our 3D Galileos digital xray machine and the CEREC digital impression system to create a custom implant guide which helps us more accurately and safely place the dental implants. Through visualizing our patients anatomy on a 3D level, we can plan both the surgical and final prosthetic end result to a much higher level than was previously possible.
