    Restoring Teeth With Dental Implants


    At Kenner Dental Group, we believe that everyone deserves the beautiful, radiant, smile they desire. Dr. Kenner V and his dedicated Team are committed to providing dental implant treatment utilizing current techniques to ensure the results you've always wanted. Dental implants have truly been revolutionary as a way for patients to re-gain teeth they've been missing for decades, replace teeth damaged with acute trauma, or manage congenital variances such as retained primary teeth or missing adult teeth.

    Whether you're missing a single tooth, or several, chewing and eating can be affected and cause you significant discomfort. Functionally, your chewing can shift subconsciously to compensate for the lack of teeth and lead to muscle pain and TMJ changes. Bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing can cause your face to look older. Fortunately, implants are a great way to manage these issues, and if properly maintained, they can last a lifetime!

    An implant consists of two major parts: The first part is the titanium portion that replaces the tooth root and is placed directly into the bone. The second major part is the abutment + crown complex that attaches onto the implant. There is typically a healing time of several months between when the implant is placed in the bone and when the abutment/crown is placed. Since each person's case can differ extensively with variables that affect implant placement (amount of bone loss, gum health, and position of neighboring teeth) a full exam and consultation is needed to answer all the questions about your treatment.

      An implant consists of two major parts: The first part is the titanium portion that replaces the root of a natural tooth and is placed directly into the bone. The second major part is the crown that attaches onto the implant and looks just like your natural tooth. With dental implants, you can smile confidently knowing no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.
