Losing one or several teeth can weaken your smile and reduce your self-esteem, but our team at Richard Healy DDS can help you regain your smile with a variety of tooth replacement options, each providing specific benefits. In particular, we invite you to consider the benefits of dental implants and the changes they can bring to your smile.

Dental implants are highly durable artificial teeth that provide your smile with the feeling of a natural tooth, especially because each implant restoration is custom crafted to match your neighboring teeth in color, size, and shape.

Because the dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone by an oral surgeon, they can aid in stimulating bone growth and preventing weakened bone when you lose teeth. It’s important to take proper care of your dental implant in order to maintain its appearance and health, and this can be done by brushing and floss daily, scheduling routine dental checkups, and avoiding the use of tobacco products.

Having a dental implant placed enables you to comfortably chew and eat all foods once again, as well as clearly pronounce words thanks to its sturdy attachment to your jawbone.
