Implants, as we understand them today, were developed in 1952 by Per-Ingvar Brånemark an orthopedic surgeon in Sweden. These days, dental implants are thought to be the standard of care for prosthetic missing teeth replacement in dentistry. An implant is a surgical fixture placed inside the jawbone and permitted to fuse with the bone over a time period of a couple of months. An implant acts as a substitution for the root of a missing tooth. As a result, the "artificial tooth root" will serve to hold a replacement bridge or tooth.

A patient’s bite can have an impact not only on the patient’s dental health but also their overall well-being because bite-related problems can lead to chronic concerns like migraine headaches or teeth that have been worn down to the dentin.

Cosmetic Dentistry

If your teeth are discolored, chipped, worn, broken, misshapen, misaligned, or if they have unsightly gaps between them, cosmetic dentistry could do wonders for your overall appearance.

A “smile makeover” is one of the most noticeable changes that you can make to your overall appearance and often, cosmetic dental procedures can be completed relatively quickly and affordably.
