We understand how stressful it can be to lose a tooth or teeth, which is why we are here to help bring your smile back to life. Dental implants are the perfect solution for many people suffering from tooth loss. Dental implants match your teeth so well that they are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth, and have the added benefit of being highly durable. Dr. Fitz will evaluate your needs and design the restoration in the most conservative way.
Dental implants are made of titanium which has the unique ability to fuse to living bone, and just like a natural tooth root, they are implanted under the gum to anchor to your jawbone. This means dental implants are extremely strong and stable. A prosthetic tooth is then attached to the implant like a screw.
Solstice Smiles Dental also offers “All-on-4” restorations — this is an advanced treatment technique that uses four or more implants to replace all of the teeth on either your upper or lower jaw and can support a full bridge of 10-14 teeth. The great news is that the All-on-4 procedure can be done right here in our dental office in Petworth!
Having a full set of teeth can improve not only your appearance but also improve your ability to speak and chew properly. Dental implant surgery can improve your way of life!
