DO MISSING TEETH LEAVE YOU FEELING SELF-CONCIOUS? DO YOU WEAR DENTURES THAT ARE UNCOMFORTABLE? DENTAL IMPLANTS CAN BE A VERY EFFECTIVE SOLUTION.
Dental implants are designed to look just as natural as your other other teeth. They are a long lasting solution for restoring your smile.
The root of the implant is made from titanium and other materials that are compatible with your tissue. Once placed in the upper or lower jaw, they act as anchors for a replacement crown above.
Patients often rave about how their implants feel as secure, stable and natural as their original tooth.
Dental implants can also be used in conjunction with dentures (implanted-supported dentures), providing a more stable fit that will give you confidence in your dentures.

Dentures & Partial Dentures
At Fairway Dental, we offer two denture methods for replacing missing teeth. Full, or complete, dentures replace entire sets of teeth. If there are still some natural teeth present, partil dentures can be used to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting.

A fixed bridge is a non-removable appliance used to replace missing teeth. They are made up of two crowns, which are affixed to neighboring, anchor teeth. The artificial teeth then sit in-between the crowns, filling in the gap in the smile. Bridges are strong and durable, but will need to be replaced years down the line.
