Dr. Lewis-Heywood and the team at Riverside Dental know the negative impact a missing tooth can have on your self-esteem. We want every patient to take pride in their teeth, smile with confidence, and go through life without worrying about their prosthetics. Dental implants not only produce a full beautiful smile, they also mimic the function of natural teeth, simplifying your daily routine. You will not have to worry about removing your prosthetics after meals, soaking overnight, and reapplying with messy adhesives. More importantly, dental implants are securely fixed within the jawbone, allowing you to eat the foods you desire, smile for pictures, and hold a conversation without the fear of your denture or other prosthetic slipping out of place.
Whether you are missing a single tooth or your entire dental arch, implants are a great investment in your quality of life. Don't suffer another day from tooth loss! Our Rio Rancho, NM, office serves people from throughout the greater Albuquerque area. Contact us online or reach us by phone:

Could not have been more pleased. Dr. Lewis-Howard’s COVID precautions were perfect (which is something I care about greatly). Her care and attention were beyond any dental care I’ve had back in Denver. I’m so happy to have found her practice. Highly recommended.View On Google
I became a patient of Dr. Hayworth Lewis when I first moved to ABQ. She was referred by co workers and became known as the main dentist that serviced employees at the center. After meeting with her it became obvious why she left a everlasting impression on those I worked with. Dr. Hayworth Lewis showed she cared about me as a patient and ensured my dental health. What a wonderful woman.View On Google

Consider These Important Long-Term Benefits
Prevent Bone Recession
Dental implants are the only treatment for missing teeth that will prevent bone loss in the jaw and face. By effectively replacing missing tooth roots, the jawbone receives the stimulation it needs to retain its tissues, keeping your bone structure intact and avoiding further tooth loss.
Improve Your Comfort
Over time, tooth loss can cause remaining teeth to shift out of place, bite irregularities, gum sensitivity, and other dental conditions. Choosing dental implants over traditional restorations will increase your long-term comfort and provide similar stability to natural teeth.
While dental implants are initially more expensive than traditional crowns, bridges, and dentures, over time they can save you money. Traditional restorations often need to be replaced more frequently; in addition, the implants themselves can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.
Dr. Lewis is very knowledgeable, she took the time to take care of me and did a great job. She is a great person. Brandon Silva
