Dental Implants

A Permanent Solution After Tooth Loss

If you have experienced permanent tooth loss due to injury, decay, or disease then dental implants may be the solution you’re looking for. Dental implants allow our patients to get their smile back even after losing permanent teeth. Dental implants not only restore the look and function of natural teeth, but in many cases, dental implants are even more durable and last longer than natural teeth as well!

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Additionally, they are designed to last a lifetime and aren’t susceptible to cavities like natural teeth are, either. Dental implants not only restore our patient’s confidence in their smiles, but they also allow them to eat and drink whatever they choose, just like they could before experiencing tooth loss. They are a much preferred alternative by patients in comparison to other prosthetics like dentures or bridges because they stay in place permanently and don’t have a risk or breaking or becoming too loose for comfort.

What Are Dental Implants?

The dental implant itself is a small metal screw that is surgically placed in the jawbone, acting like the root of the natural tooth that once took its place. This dental implant is designed with hypoallergenic titanium that over time naturally fuses with the jawbone to keep it in place. Once the dental implant has been placed and given time to heal, an artificial crown is attached to it, mimicking the look of the natural tooth that was once there. These crowns are always designed to match the size, shape, and shade of your surrounding teeth so they look completely natural.

Who Can Get Dental Implants?

Dental implants can be an effective treatment for patients who have lost a single permanent tooth, multiple permanent teeth, or even for those who need full arch replacements. We evaluate each patient individually to determine if their available jaw bone is sufficient to support dental implants, and we offer bone grafting services for those who might need it as well.
