Many people who are missing teeth struggle with ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures or retainers with false teeth. If you know what this feels like and are ready for a solution, we have one for you! At Las Cruces Dental Solutions, we can give your smile a second chance with the help of tooth implants. Dental implant dentistry will permanently replace missing teeth, from one tooth to many teeth. Healthy implants can even prevent bone loss!
A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically connected to your jawbone. Due to the biocompatible properties of titanium, the implant will quickly fuse with your jawbone and provide a solid, secure foundation for a dental crown or bridge.

While many dentists can restore dental implants (top them with a crown or bridge), not all dentists have the ability to perform the complete implant process. Las Cruces dentists Dr. Petersen and Dr. Mackey have completed training in both the surgical placement and the cosmetic restoration of dental implants, so you can receive all of your implant care right here at Las Cruces Dental Solutions.
In addition to being a popular method for single-tooth replacements, dental implants are also one of the most effective ways to stabilize loose dentures. Ill-fitting removable dentures can be uncomfortable and impractical, not to mention embarrassing in social situations. Implant-supported dentures look and feel more natural, and they also provide superior comfort and stability.
If you are missing teeth, or require a tooth extraction, dental implants can help you and your smile. As long as your jawbone is healthy, we can place implants. If the bone has deteriorated and isn’t strong enough for an implant, we can perform a bone graft to get your jawbone healthy and ready for placement of your implant. Visit Las Cruces Dental Solutions to meet with our team, so we can determine if you are a good candidate for implants.
Missing teeth can be replaced at any age because missing teeth can happen at any age. Whether you’re missing a tooth because of dental trauma – maybe the result of contact sports – or because of infection or general wear and tear and age, we can give you a brand new smile with a tooth implant that looks, feels, and functions just like your other natural teeth.
When you have missing teeth, doing simple things like talking and eating are suddenly very difficult. Implants can help restore your smile and improve the overall quality of your day-to-day life. Dental implants can:
