Losing teeth can be difficult to deal with, but we here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point do all that we can to make sure that your smile is restored and that you are happy with your new smile. When replacing teeth, there are several methods you can consider, and dental implants in Fort Myers are certainly an option here at our offices. Serving the Fort Myers and Sanibel areas, and their surrounding communities, for over twenty years, our dentist Dr. William J. Shorack can tell you more about how implants work and whether they are the right option for you.
When losing teeth, it can be easy to focus on the immediate changes like how it will affect the way you eat and speak on a regular basis, as well as how it will change your appearance. But living with missing teeth is detrimental to your dental health most of all, so even when you are at the stage where the loss of teeth is imminent, you should be discussing dental prostheses with your dentist beforehand. When replacing lost teeth, there are several options. Bridges and dentures are common, and neither one requires any surgery to set up. Bridges are good for people who have lost few teeth, and dentures can be used to replace sections or entire rows of teeth. In both cases, these prostheses are easily removable when needed or desired, but they do not always provide the same reliability as implants do. Here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point, Dr. Shorack can go through the motions, tell you about the procedure, as well as tell you how implants may be better for you. Dental implants in Fort Myers are individually attached to the jaw bone and each tooth is designed to look and function as naturally as possible.
Whether you happen to be a candidate for dental implants in Fort Myers or are simply interested in the procedure, Dr. Shorack would be more than happy to walk you through the step-by-step process as well as provide you with the preliminary exam you’ll need right here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point.
