Dental implants bridge the gap between cosmetic and general dentistry. On the one hand, very few people enjoy the appearance of a smile with obviously missing teeth. On the other hand, teeth perform a vital function in speaking and eating. If a tooth is missing, this can impair those vital functions.
The best way to handle a missing tooth is to replace it with a dental implant. Dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone; then they are topped with a crown, bridge, or dentures to fully restore the tooth’s or teeth’s look and function. The result is a flawless smile that few people will be able to guess isn’t wholly natural.
Dr. Pourlos does not place implants; this is a procedure that must be done by a specialist. However, he can certainly take care of the initial consultation, and once the implant is placed and has healed, he can place the crown, bridge, or dentures over the implant.
