A Lifelong Solution Missing Teeth

Don’t let missing teeth ruin your smile. At Desired Dental, we offer dental implants, the most natural solution. Over time, the jaw bone can atrophy in the spot where your teeth (or tooth) are missing, and any remaining healthy teeth will shift position to account for the gap. This can throw off your bite and reduce the way your mouth functions. Don’t let missing teeth destroy your oral health.
In accordance with our mission to provide comprehensive, quality dental care in a single location, Dr. Demewoz both places and restores dental implants. First, a titanium post is inserted into your jaw where the bone is the strongest, and during healing, the bone fuses to the post. This post acts as a root for a prosthetic tooth, and keeps teeth from shifting.
Along with traditional dental implants, we offer other types of implant restorations:

Mini-Implants

Like traditional implants, mini-implants are a durable, permanent solution to missing teeth. However, the process is less invasive, which means less healing time for patients. Typically, mini-implants don’t require complex surgery or bone grafts, and patients usually only use over-the-counter pain medicine, if they need any at all. As long as you have enough healthy bone, you may be a candidate for cost-effective mini-implants.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Tired of your dentures slipping out, despite using a load of gooey adhesive? Ill-fitting dentures cause discomfort and can alter the functionality of your mouth. Implant-retained dentures are an alternative to regular dentures, as they are held in place with four implant posts. Your current dentures can be altered, or you can have a new set made to snap onto the implant fixtures. Implant-retained dentures are more secure and comfortable.
