At our South Bend, IN dentist office, Dr. Nicole Hurcomb and our professional team can give you your confidence and oral function back with an array of restorative dentistry options!

Your Dental Implant Restoration Options

Dental implants are a tooth replacement option made up of three parts: the dental implant (the replacement tooth root), your restoration (the replacement tooth or teeth), and a small screw that connects the two.

At Tulip Tree Dental Care, we offer several custom restorations that we can attach to dental implants, including:

So you can make the decision that is best for you and your smile, we will explain all your options.

We work closely with an oral surgeon who places dental implants. For your comfort, they will provide anesthesia and possibly dental sedation to numb the area before getting to work.

Once your dental implants have fused to your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, you will return to our office to have your personalized restoration secured. You’ll walk out with a new and improved smile you can be proud of!

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Compared to other restorative options, dental implants offer many advantages, because they provide:

  • Superior oral function: regain 90 percent or more of your bite strength!
  • Convincing tooth replacements: your new teeth will look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth!
  • A sturdy foundation for restorations: your replacement teeth won’t slip or fall out!

Dental implants will also help you maintain your youthful look because they help prevent deterioration of your jawbone!
