Expertise in Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry
Missing teeth affect everything from your ability to comfortably chew foods to how confident you feel in your smile. Even if a single tooth is lost or extracted, you may find that everyday activities like talking, eating, and smiling become more difficult. Dental implants are considered the best replacement to missing teeth as they allow patients to return to the same aesthetic and functional level as with natural teeth. Our expertise in implant and cosmetic dentistry enables us to both place and restore dental implants, providing our patients with seamless treatments from the same team of exceptional dentists. We combine our experience with advanced guided implant surgery and IV sedation dentistry so that your dental implants treatment is comfortable, accurate and safe.
Dental Implants Mimic Your Natural Teeth
One of the greatest advantages of dental implants as tooth replacements is that they mimic virtually all of the function and beauty of a natural and healthy tooth. Structurally, dental implants are designed like a normal tooth—from the root to the crown. This allows them to integrate into the jaw bone like natural teeth, becoming strong and sturdy enough to support a dental crown or full-arch prosthesis. When restored, dental implants take on all the roles of normal teeth, and you can once again bite and chew comfortably, smile without embarrassment, and laugh or speak without fear. Overall, dental implants provide a boost in self-confidence, dramatically improving how you feel about yourself and your smile!
Benefits of Dental Implants:
• Boosts self-esteem
• Restores biting and chewing power
• Improves comfort
• Strong, durable, and permanent
• Protects existing teeth
• Improves oral health
Your Dental Implant Options
Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.
Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.
Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
The Dental Implant Treatment Process
All of our dental implant patients receive a comprehensive consultation and evaluation, complete with x-rays. This lets us determine which preliminary procedures are needed before placing dental implants. During this time, we create surgical guides, which will be used to increase precision during surgery when we screw the dental implant post into your jaw bone. This will take 3-6 months to heal, after which we will attach your custom dental crown. Once this appointment is complete, you will be able to enjoy the full benefits provided by your new dental implants!
