Implants are a really good option. They're really kind of a newer option, relative to the history of dentistry. It used to be that if you were missing back teeth, you couldn't replace them, but now you can. We can put an anchor in the jawbone. It's the same material as if you were getting a joint replaced like a knee or a hip. We can put a little anchor down in there and put a tooth on top of it. You can have restored function, you can chew again. You can chew the food you used to enjoy: steak or whatever tough foods that you like to chew, and that brings a lot of enjoyment back to somebody's life and improves the quality of life, so implants are a great option where you have missing teeth.
- Smile with total confidence
- Eat any foods you like
- Properly digest foods due to increased chewing ability
- Eliminate the stress associated with dentures, which can slip out of place
- Enjoy a new smile the same day as your extraction or implant placement, in some cases

Providing You Custom Dental Implants To Best Help Your Smile
If you’re missing teeth, Dr. Swartzentruber may recommend dental implants to provide your new, full smile. These titanium replacement tooth roots are placed in your jaw and bond to your jawbone to serve as strong anchors for natural-looking replacement teeth. Dental implants can:
- Replace all or just a few of your missing teeth
- Support dentures, which will be firmly attached to your implants
Once we’ve determined the most optimal placement for your implants using digital X-rays, we work with a local surgeon to ensure they are properly placed to best benefit your smile. We also offer bone grafts to strengthen your jaw if it is too weak to support dental implants.
You may be provided with temporary replacement teeth so you can confidently smile and eat the same day your implants are placed. You’ll also receive all the information you need to care for your smile at home while your gums heal. Your final replacement teeth will be gently anchored to your implants to provide your brand-new smile. Dr. Swartzentruber will recommend follow-up appointments to ensure your implants are looking and feeling great for you.
