- Shifting teeth
- Facial sagging
- Crooked teeth
- Misaligned bite
- Tooth decay
If any of these conditions sound familiar to you, call (479) 217-3178. Dr. Keech and his team will ensure your comfort throughout the treatment process with advanced dental care in a warm and friendly environment.
Restorative Dental Solutions
One or more dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Dr. Keech works with a local surgeon to place implants into the jaw bone. Dental implants consist of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown. During a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the implants fuse to the jaw bone for a secure end result. After this time, dental impressions will be made to create a permanent dental crown that tops off the implant.
Several lost or missing teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge secured by dental implants or remaining natural teeth. Traditional dental bridges secured with teeth often require dental crowns. Dr. Keech will take dental impressions of teeth if this restoration is needed.
Removable or fixed dentures improve speech and prevent future bone loss in patients with missing teeth. Like other solutions, dentures require dental impressions to fabricate the restoration. Dr. Keech will provide you with a temporary denture to wear while the permanent denture is being created.
