Dental Implants

Dental Implants have become the treatment of choice for people who are missing one or more of their natural teeth. Dental implants look and perform like natural teeth. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants replace the root portion of a natural tooth. For single tooth replacement, a custom crown is then made and attached to the implant.

Implant Placement Preserves Jawbone

Dental Implants act similar to a natural tooth root so that the bone is sufficiently stimulated. The jawbone requires the stimulation provided by normal chewing function to continue regenerating itself to maintain its density and form. Dental Implants act similar to a natural tooth root so that the bone is sufficiently stimulated. Because they are located in the jawbone, implants transfer the forces of chewing directly to the bone in the same way as a natural tooth root does. They halt the resorption (bone assimilation) preventing bone loss.

Dental Implants Have Many Applications

Recent advances in dental implant technology have elevated dental implants to become the first choice for tooth replacement as well as being an effective tool for supporting removable prosthetic appliances.

Today, the customary treatment options for the replacement of a missing tooth are the single dental implant or a fixed bridge.

Single Tooth Replacement

Today, the customary treatment options for the replacement of a missing tooth are the single dental implant or a fixed bridge.

Single Tooth Implant

Placing an implant and then attaching a single crown to it avoids involving the adjacent teeth. The implant crown can easily be flossed the same as a natural tooth. An implant is a more natural-looking tooth replacement method and will last for many years.

Fixed Bridge

When an implant cannot be used, a fixed bridge is an acceptable alternative.

The fixed bridge alternative requires the placement of a crown on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth space. A replacement tooth is then attached to the crowns. The bridge is cemented to place as one piece. Since the crowns making up the bridge are connected together, it is necessary to thread floss underneath the replacement tooth in order to clean the area.

Multiple Tooth Replacement

When more than one tooth is missing, multiple implants can be used to replace them permanently. By strategically placing implants in the jawbone, they can be used to anchor permanent bridges without the need to involve any of your own natural teeth. Since the bridges are permanently placed, there is no need to remove any dental appliances.

Anchor(s) For Partial Dentures and Complete Dentures

A common problem for denture wearers is the instability of the dentures. When a denture is not secure, it will make it difficult to talk or chew properly.

An implant-supported partial or complete denture is a welcome alternative to traditional dentures. They are very stable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods. No longer will you have to worry about loose dentures in public. Gum sores will no longer occur.
