If you look at yourself in the mirror and aren’t happy with what you see, it can cause you to have lower self-esteem. Likewise, missing teeth can take a toll on your happiness and cause you to smile less, which can ultimately lead to general unhappiness.

How Can Dental Implants Help?

A dental implant can replace one or more missing teeth, and they look and feel like your natural teeth. Implants work just like your natural teeth do. A large titanium screw acts as the root and is secured in your jaw. Then a crown is put on that has been specifically designed to fit in your mouth. Replacing a missing tooth can also help ensure the rest of your teeth don’t shift.

While implants help with your oral health, they can additionally have an enormous impact on your confidence. For example, you may not realize that you’ve stopped smiling or that your smile isn’t as wide as it used to be because you’re hiding your missing tooth. Dental implants will give you the confidence to smile again, as big and wide as you’d like to!

What Our Patients Say

Since having my first traumatic experience as a 9 year old with an army dentist I was always anxious about going to the dentist; my muscles would get tense, and I would grip the arms of the dentist chair, anticipating the worst.
But what a difference Dr. Ward has made in my previously harrowing experiences with dentists. With her calm caring manner and soothing touch, I actually became more relaxed in the dentist chair. What a relief!

Then as a bonus, there are times she would softly hum a tune which even makes me more calm, like a mother soothing an anxious baby – I guess I must have been a big baby when it came to dentists, but not anymore! Thank God for Dr. Ward! And her friendly staff aren’t too bad either.

Dr. Ward, I want you to know how much I appreciate the care I have received here. I am so happy with the improvement in my gums, and it is because of your emphasis on preventive oral care. It has made a huge difference, and I thank you.

Dave Diaz

Beginning in 1995 Dr. Ward took over my dental care. She has proven to be as painless as I believe possible. My bridges have performed perfectly. My extractions have been very few, and my partial is working without incident. I recommend that anyone needing dental work consider using Dr. Ward.

Rudolph Hughes

Very gentle, very competent. I am very appreciative of your skill and skill of your staff. Thanks.

Shawna Silva

One day during my morning prayer and meditation I had to look up the word honorable. The word is rich in meaning and implies the purest, highest, noblest kind of goodness. Honorable means “lovely”, “winsome”, “gracious”, “noble” and “excellent’. Your name, Winsome, definitely describes your character and your practice. God bless and keep you!!!
