Missing teeth impact your ability to chew and speak comfortably, affecting your overall oral health as well. At the practice of Dr. Shawna Hawk, we provide teeth replacement options with dental implant services. Our implant-supported restorations are fabricated to look and feel like natural teeth, allowing you to confidently smile once again.
Benefits of Implant-Supported Teeth
Whether you’re missing one tooth or a full arch of teeth, dental implants and restorations are a trusted treatment to rejuvenate your smile. While traditional fixed bridges, must utilize adjacent teeth to support the fake tooth, dental implants are completely independent and do not require the alteration of neighboring teeth.
For patients who are missing full arches of teeth, traditional removable dentures require natural suction and dental adhesives to keep the prosthetic in place. Dental implants used to anchor prosthetics prevent the jaw bone loss that traditional dentures can cause over time.
Dental implant restorations allow patients to feel confident in the permanence and reliability of their new teeth. Implant posts are placed into the jaw restore the integrity and strength of surrounding tissue.
Dr. Hawk provides implant restorations in Washington DC such as:
- Single implant crowns
