What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a type of dental restoration that replaces one or multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are the only restoration that replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. They consist of an implant post, an abutment, and a dental prosthetic. The prosthetic may consist of a single crown or multiple teeth, such as dental bridges and dentures.

The implant post is what sets these dental restorations apart because it functions just as your natural tooth root would have, and even stimulates the jaw. This is a vital part of your overall oral health because it prevents bone loss and preserves your facial muscles and structure. The post is also permanent, which means your restoration will not fall out or slip.

Implant-Supported Crowns: Even a single missing tooth can impact your bite function or make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Implant-supported crowns can change that. Our dental crowns are carefully designed to match the size, shape, and color of your missing tooth, so it blends beautifully with your smile. Implant-supported crowns renew your smile and preserve your bite pattern by keeping the neighboring teeth from shifting into the gap.

Implant-Supported Bridges: If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, you may not be able to enjoy some of your favorite foods. Certain words are more difficult to pronounce, and you may often hide your smile. We offer implant-supported bridges to replace multiple teeth in a row with a reliable and stable dental restoration. Our bridges have an implant post at the front and back topped by crowns, with prosthetic teeth called pontics suspended between them. The posts are anchored in your jawbone, so the bridge will not slip, which allows you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

Implant-Supported Dentures: Our compassionate dentist can use implant-supported dentures to restore your oral function and aesthetic appeal. These dental restorations consist of artificial teeth set in a soft body-safe acrylic base that mimics the appearance of healthy gums, held securely in place by permanent dental implants. We offer both partial and full implant-supported dentures, including All-on-4® for those who qualify.

Our Dental Implant Process

From the moment you walk into our dental practice, you know that you are our priority. We begin with a gentle and thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums. Our team takes detailed and accurate images with a cone beam scanner and combines the information from your exam with these images to create a treatment plan that is tailored to you and your unique needs.

If we discover issues such as gum disease or a thin jawbone, we will include the necessary pretreatments in your plan. Our team performs bone grafts and gentle extractions to safeguard your oral health.

Our gentle dentist will perform the implant placement surgery, where the titanium post is anchored to your jaw. You will take time to heal from the procedure and allow the implant post to fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the post has successfully fused with your jaw, we will place the abutment and the crown, bridge, or denture that will complete your smile.

Tooth Implant FAQs

Your questions and concerns are important to us, and we encourage you to share them. We are happy to provide the answers you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.

How do I care for my dental implants?

Dental implants are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them twice daily, just like your natural teeth. It is important that you also maintain your biannual dental visits so our friendly dentist can check the integrity of your dental implant.

Disagreements over a business's direction and management can cause significant issues, particularly for closely-held family enterprises. Decisions that can lead to problems include large outlay or purchases of capital, financial disruptions, and the letting go of or firing of non-shareholder employees.

No. While the implant post placement surgery may cause some discomfort, the pain will go away after a few days. The restoration itself does not hurt because it has been custom-made to fit snugly and comfortably with your natural teeth.
