Mission Valley Oral & Maxillofacial SurgeRY — MVOMS
Transforming smiles. Transforming lives.
A healthy smile attracts people. It communicates vitality and self-confidence. When accidents, genetics, or disease cause dental falure, your looks, ability to eat, and very self-image may suffer. Fortunately, 21st Century dentistry has developed amazing abilities to prevent or reverse dental disasters. Modern dental implants can support replacement teeth that are so natural-looking they can’t be distinguished from the original incisors, cuspids, and molars. Often the transformation can be made almost instantaneously; the patient may be able to go home with a new smile on the day his or her failing teeth are extracted . The implant-supported new teeth do more than just look good. They restore function and keep the underlying jawbone healthy.
