Dental implants

Implants can be a great alternative to a lost, cracked, or decayed tooth. Many people go years with missing teeth without consulting their dentist for a treatment plan. Don’t wait to get yours, call us today!

A Beautiful, Natural Smile

Having missing or decayed teeth can be frustrating to deal with. Dental Implants will restore your smile back to how it was.

Enjoy The Foods You Love

Once you have lost a tooth, you stop eating foods that are difficult to eat. Dental Implants make it much easier to enjoy the foods you love.

Bone Preservation

After you lose a tooth, the bone around that tooth could get soft or start to close in from the surrounding teeth.

Speak With Confidence

Most feel uncomfortable speaking in front of people when they have missing teeth. Restore your confidence by filling in that gap.

Step One
Step Two
Step Three

An implant is made of three equally important pieces: the titanium implant, the abutment, and the crown. In the first step of the procedure, the implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. After placement, the titanium implant begins to fuse with the jaw bone. This creates a connection between jaw and implant very similar to that between jaw and a natural tooth.

The next step is to fit the abutment over the part of the implant that is exposed above the gum line.

 Finally, the crown, the piece that looks like a natural tooth, is placed over the abutment.

A Little About Dental Implants

Fixed Bridge

Traditionally, patients missing only one tooth select a fixed bridge for tooth replacement; however, this treatment is not without complications. A bridge often damages the remaining natural teeth, which may otherwise have remained healthy. Bridges often need to be replaced once or twice over a lifetime, depending on the patient’s age. Similar complications exist with partial dentures. Within 5-7 years of treatment, there is as large as a 30% failure rate in either fixed bridge or partial denture replacements. Given the potential complications and required repair, these options can become more costly in the long-run, particularly for patients who receive replacements earlier in life.

A Little About Dental Implants

Traditional Procedures

Whereas implants promote overall oral and jaw health, the presence of natural teeth or implants helps to preserve the jaw bone. An extracted or lost tooth can cause the bone to weaken or erode. Bone grafting may be required to create sufficient bone structure in which to place the implant. Once placed, successful implants provide stability and work to maintain jaw health just as natural teeth do.

There is over 50 years of science and research that supports the use and success of dental implants. Often, they are the best long-term option for tooth replacement.
