Dental Implants in Prairie Village, KS
Losing a tooth is undoubtedly one of the most traumatic experiences an adult can face; missing a tooth anywhere in the mouth places oral health at risk and may force undesirable alterations to diet. In addition, missing teeth can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and a tendency to avoid social situations due to embarrassment. Fortunately, modern dental implant technology makes it possible to replace missing teeth in a way that is more realistic and comfortable than any other type of restorative dentistry. Dr. Cattaneo helps patients from throughout Prairie Village, KS and the surrounding areas eat, speak, and smile comfortably with dental implant restorations.
Rebuilding Your Smile with Dental Implants
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically implanted within the bone of the jaw in the place of missing teeth. The biocompatible material gradually fuses with the tissue that comprises the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration. Following this healing process, Dr. Cattaneo will complete your restoration with a custom crown, bridge, or denture, depending upon your unique needs.
Dental implants are widely regarded as the most effective and permanent restorative option for patients with missing teeth. The procedure promotes natural, long-lasting results and helps to prevent future deterioration of the jaw bone. While dentures, partials, and bridges may replace the crown portion of a missing tooth, the lack of a root directly impacts the life of the bone tissue that makes up the entire jaw structure. With a dental implant, the bone is stimulated and preserved, promoting a secure foundation for your remaining natural teeth. Dental implant patients love the freedom they enjoy with their new restorations, finally able to eat their favorite foods again and smile with the knowledge that their teeth look great.
