Dental implants can be thought of as artificial roots onto which prosthetic teeth can be placed. A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and is made from surgical-grade titanium alloy capped by an artificial tooth, matched to look like one of your own natural teeth.

Dental implants enable a person to eat their favorite foods with restored chewing ability, and can improve appearance, speech, and self-esteem.

Dr. Lawson can restore dental implants to match the natural color, size and shape of your adjoining teeth. By taking into account tooth color and size as well as other features, we ensure that your dental implant restoration is realistic looking.

DID YOU KNOW?

Saliva serves an important function in oral health and actually the health of your entire body.

Every day, the average human body produces from a quart to an entire gallon of saliva a day! Actually, it is a process of recycling.

Saliva is mostly made of water, but it also includes important proteins and minerals that continously bath your teeth to prevent tooth decay and gum disease and protect your tooth enamel. Saliva even keeps your breath fresh. Saliva also contains important substances necessary for proper digestion of food.

The action of chewing stimulates salivary glands inside your cheeks and mouth to produce saliva. The more forcefully you chew, the more saliva is produced. So the more you use your teeth, the more the body is stimulated to protect them.

Preserve your health

In recent years, scientists have discovered something remarkable—harmful bacteria that live in the small spaces between your teeth and gums are linked to a host of tragic illnesses. For example, the bacteria associated with Alzheimer’s Disease grow in tiny spaces between the teeth and gum (called periodontal pockets). From there, these harmful bacteria can spread along the nerve pathway from the teeth to the brain tissue. When these bacteria are introduced into brain cultures, a substance called beta amyloid is formed, which is a cause of Alzheimer’s Disease. Peridontal bacteria have also been linked to heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, respiratory ailments, strokes and blood clots, premature babies, low birth weight, and inflammation diseases. Preserve your good health by twice daily brushing and flossing.
