For over 30 years, dental implants have been improving the lives of those who have sought the treatment. Designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth, dental implants allow patients to laugh, speak, and smile with confidence. Dr. Elmore has had extensive training in dental implant surgery and completed an Advanced Residency Program at Iowa State University in 2017. He has placed many implants and grafting in the past 5 years from simple placement of a single dental implant to comprehensive treatment involving multiple implants. With dental implants, a person who has lost teeth can regain the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Please ask about dental implants as they serve several purposes and are a way to improve your life. When you lose several teeth – whether it’s a new situation or something you have lived with for years – chances are you have never become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Dental implants can be your doorway to renewed self-confidence and peace of mind. Implants are recommended over other reconstructive techniques for several reasons. It is not beneficial to sacrifice the structure of surrounding teeth to bridge a space. Removing a denture or a partial at night can be inconvenient. Dentures that slip can cause discomfort and embarrassment. Because dental implants are gently placed into the underlying jawbone, the recovery from the procedure is often associated with minimal discomfort throughout recovery.
