For more than 40 years, dental implants have been giving people a reason to smile.
Implants redefined what was possible with restorative dentistry. Today, you can replace all your teeth and still eat any food that you would like. Implants give you the closest thing to a real tooth that modern dentistry can offer.
That why we recommend them for our patients in and around Panama City, FL. If you are missing one or more teeth, visit us to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Preserve Your Jaw
During our years of helping patients, we’ve heard some common complaints from people with traditional dentures.
Their dentures slide around too much. Their dentures make it hard to eat certain foods. They don’t like the way denture adhesives affect the flavor of the things they eat. Because they move around, their dentures irritation their gums. Their dentures sometimes make it difficult or awkward to speak.
A big factor in all of those issues is that traditional dentures are not connected to your jawbone. This is important. When you had all your teeth, your teeth were embedded in your jaw by the roots. Because of this, your root pushed into your jawbone when you ate. That pressure caused your jaw to make new bone tissue. That replaced older tissue as it was absorbed back into the body.
Dentures, by themselves, don’t provide enough pressure to cause your jaw to make new bone. This lead to bone loss. That changes the shape of your mouth, which is why dentures often feel looser the longer someone has them.
By getting implants, which are titanium replacements for the roots of your teeth, you restore the connection from your “teeth” to your jawbone. That makes your dentures more secure, and it prevents the bone loss that occurs with dentures alone.
Eat, Speak, & Be Merry
Based on research and (maybe more importantly) what our patients have told us, getting implant-supported dentures can make a world of difference in your quality of life.
When you have implants, you can bite with nearly as much power as someone with a full set of healthy teeth. This is why you can eat chicken or steak comfortably. It’s why you can confidently bite into an apple, too.
With implants, your replacement teeth will remain stable and secure. You can trust that you can tell that joke … without people laughing because your “teeth” fell out before you finished.
When you have implants, you can trust that your new teeth will look, feel, and function as well as the real thing for all practical purposes.
