If you are self-conscious because you have missing teeth, wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't want to have good tooth structure removed to make a bridge, talk to Dr. McCrea. Dental implants may be an option for you.Dental implants are the best development in tooth replacement to date. They can be used to create a tooth anchored in your mouth as solid as the original.  Implants have been around since the early 1980s and have been continually refined since then. Success rates are in the high 90 percentiles. Dr. McCrea has recently started placing implants, and works with several Periodontists (gum specialists) who also place implants. When the implant is ready to have the crown, bridge, or denture attached to it Dr. McCrea will complete the placement of the crown, etc. to restore the missing teeth.

Implants can be life changing for the patient who wears a denture. Implants can be placed with specialized attachments to support and anchor the denture. The implants stabilize the denture so that it does not move around when the patient eats or talks. It helps the patient improve their diet, health, and their self confidence. It is one of the simplest ways to use dental implants, yet it yields some of the most satisfying results.

Dr. McCrea would be happy to meet with you and look at the specifics of your situation. Give us a call!
