Being able to smile with confidence gives one a pure sense of freedom. However, if you are someone who hides a smile because you do not want others to see that you have missing or damaged teeth, you may miss out on that feeling. There is no better time like the present to consult with a dentist like Dr. Tilman Richards about dental implants and how they grant you the freedom to smile.
How Implants Work
The dental implant process may involve a bit of surgery. First, Dr. Richards must determine if you are a good candidate. These implants consist of titanium posts that must be inserted into the jawbone, so you need sufficient bone density to keep the implant in place. If necessary, you may have a bone graft to bolster the jawbone. Once this heals, Dr. Richards can place the dental implants into the jaw. At another visit, a natural-looking crown is placed on top of the implant, restoring your smile.
How They Free Your Smile
You may think at first that everyone will know you have an implant, but this generally is not the case. This is because Dr. Richards goes the extra mile to ensure your implant looks like the rest of your teeth. In addition, dental implants stay in place – you do not need to remove them for cleaning and they do not slide around while you talk. You are free to eat your favorite foods without worry, and you care for your implant the same as you do for your real teeth – regular brushing and flossing and dental visits.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
