- Dental Implants-Restoration
Are you missing teeth? Have you postponed getting a bridge or a denture? Do you wear ill-fitting or loose dentures right now? If so, Williams Dental & Orthodontics wants to improve your quality of life with dental implants.
As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, dental implants serve as substitute tooth roots. Each implant is strategically placed in the jaw, where bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Benefits of dental implants:
- Promote bone retention
- Eliminate slipping, loose, wobbly dentures
- Don’t require support from healthy teeth
- Can last a lifetime
- Look, feel, and function like natural teeth

- Dental Implant-Supported Dentures
While typical dentures shift and require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures, such as gum sores and difficulty speaking and chewing. Implant-supported dentures distribute your biting pressure more like natural teeth than traditional dentures, stimulating the supportive structures of your teeth and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. You can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking implants.
After a tooth loss, your appearance transforms, and your confidence can fade. With dentures, you can regain your confident, normal life even after the loss of your teeth. Offering only the most advanced, removable dentures to best fit you, Dr. Brad Williams will guide you every step of the way. Our team creates custom dentures made especially for you and helps you select the shade and shape. You walk away with great fitting dentures that look just like real teeth, and smiling is just the beginning.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Dr. Brad Williams or Dr. Brad Williams II uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain or gold to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped or broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.
If you have lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile, left uncorrected, can create significant problems for your dental health. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to efficiently chew in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap, resulting in discomfort, pain, and more future problems. After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, crowns are created for them. A prosthetic tooth, or pontic, is fused between the crowns. Fixed bridges literally “bridge the gap” in your smile. Your doctor creates a functional, natural-looking bridge to correct your smile, to restore your bite, and to alleviate your discomfort.
Even if you have healthy teeth and gums, the way they fit within your mouth is another important aspect of your dental health. If your teeth are improperly positioned, you may suffer from an irregular bite. While everyone wants straight teeth for aesthetic reasons, there are also major health concerns associated with your bite. Dr. Brad has over 30 years experience in orthodontics and is a Senior Instructor for the American Orthodontic Society. Dr. Brad will discuss with you what treatment will best suit your needs. Our consultations are complimentary.
- Traditional Braces
If you have crooked teeth, you have many options for treatment. While dental technology has produced a number of new treatments, sometimes the traditional method is the most effective. Traditional braces are less expensive than many of the newer technologies, and many dentists believe they are more effective at straightening teeth especially if you suffer from a significant bite problem. Talk to Dr. Brad Williams today about traditional braces. They may be the very best procedure to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
