New Year, New Smile

A New Year means new goals! Maybe those goals include an improved smile, or to replace missing teeth. Good news….we are here to help!


Believe it or not, your teeth can affect your whole body. Missing teeth can affect your bite, speech and eating choices. Sometimes you can even experience headaches or jaw pain due to wearing out your remaining healthy teeth. A long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth are dental implants or a refresh smile. Below is a summary overview of both options:


Dental Implants:

These traditional, long-lasting implants are used to replace multiple or single missing teeth. Dental implants are made of biocompatible material (titanium) that integrates with the bone in the jaw to create a stable foundation for the restorative crown or prosthesis.

Dental implants form a strong foundation for teeth and keep the jaw healthy and strong. Implants support individual replacement teeth or secure specialized dentures in place. Unlike bridges, no healthy teeth are damaged. Implant-supported replacement teeth can be attractive, stable, and comfortable for almost any patient.


Refresh Smile:

Refresh Smile is a great choice for patients that have teeth that cannot be restored or the current dental restorations cannot be saved. This procedure is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that can be completed in one day.

Give our office a call to see if you could be a candidate for a Refresh Smile! This procedure is for patients that have greater dental needs than an average patient. Dr. Oakley’s knowledge and expertise of this procedure has helped many patients get their teeth back and gain a new smile and confidence.
