Implant Dentistry: 6. Creating a New Smile with Dental Implants

Get the Flash Player to see this player.

There is an art to creating new smiles through implant dentistry. Dr. Rick Kline discusses the various ingredients that go into producing an aesthetically pleasing and fully functional set of new teeth for his dental implant patients.

In the past, dentures were as obvious as face lifts. With today’s technology and software, that’s not the case when it comes to dental implants. Each implant is a customized creation, separately designed to match the look of the patient in a natural way. Dr. Rick Kline calls the collaboration between himself, the dental lab he works with, and the patient as the “co-creation” of a beautiful smile.

Those who have suffered silently with ill-fitting dentures often repress their true personality by stifling laughter or smiles for fear of losing their dentures in the process. Implant dentistry is life-changing, giving people the self-confidence they once had and lost. Watch this video for examples of people who have found new life through dental implants.
