Dental Implants and Your Smile, Restored

Ryan Coombs, DDS & Shannon Brewer, DDS | Carson City, Nevada's Preferred Dentists, Specializing In General & Cosmetic Dentistry

Although they're below the gumline, your teeth's roots form a solid structure that is fundamental to maintaining healthy teeth. Damaged roots cause tooth decay, and in extreme cases, total tooth loss.

Dental implants, however, can replace the root of a tooth allowing additional hardware to be attached to restore your smile to a full and bright position. Often crowns, bridges or even a ball socket can be used to connect a denture.

Implants are made of titanium ,because it is compatible with and fuses well to bone in a process called osseointegration. When completed, the final result of an implant is a strong support structure that, in most cases, will hold a "replacement" tooth to your jaw for the rest of your life.

There are a number of implants options available. Call the Carson City office of Drs. Coombs & Brewer today for a personal consultation about the best for your smile.
