Does this sound like you?
You recently lost a tooth due to a physical injury, or advanced dental trouble, and you want to regain your complete smile.

You want to improve your dental function after losing teeth.
You know tooth loss can lead to more oral health problems, and you want to make sure you are protected.
If this is you, you’ve come to the right place!
World Class Implant Dentistry
The loss of just one tooth can be enough to cause serious problems for your smile, and your overall oral health. At Lathrop Dental Center, we can help you regain your confidence with a dental implant-supported prosthetic. Implants are great for transforming your appearance, but they are also popular because they can improve your oral health, and help you bite and chew food without pain, or difficulty.
PLACING A DENTAL IMPLANT
Dental implants take on the role of a tooth root. This means your new tooth will be more comfortable, and more secure, while feeling more natural! There are three parts to an implant-supported prosthetic:
The implant post resides below your jawline, and keeps your restoration stable. The implant post also helps keep nutrients flowing to the bone, so it stays healthy.
Your abutment holds your restoration in place, and keeps it connected to the implant.
Your restoration is the part of the prosthetic people can see. Modern, life-like restorations have great esthetic value, and help patients feel confident in their new smile.
