Implants Offer a Lifetime of Advantages

Your dental implants should last a lifetime with proper care. Unlike traditional dentures, you’ll never need to adjust the fit. Implants also offer many other benefits:

  • Strong Bite – You’ll enjoy a bite nearly as strong as before you lost teeth, perhaps even stronger.
  • No Embarrassing Slippage – Implants provide a stable foundation for the restoration of your choice.
  • No Modification of Natural Teeth – With a traditional dental bridge, we need to modify your adjacent teeth. That isn’t needed when you get implants.
  • Stronger Bone Structure – Implants (like natural tooth roots) stimulate your jawbone, which prevents the bone shrinkage that can occur with traditional dentures and bridges.
  • Simple Cleaning – Caring for your implant-supported restoration is practically as easy brushing and flossing natural teeth.

Recreate a Complete Smile

If you are interested in replacement teeth, our doctors will assess you using the latest technology, such as 3D and panoramic imaging. Even if you don’t have enough bone density for implants, you have options. For example, we can perform a bone graft, or you could get mini dental implants instead.

If implants are right for you, our dentists will determine the most secure position to place your implants and then embed them directly into your jawbone. We’ll numb you with local anesthesia first, so you won’t feel a thing. Then we’ll:

  • Allow your jawbone to heal around the dental implant, a process that usually takes a few months
  • Attach abutments to your implants
  • Add dental restorations to the abutments

Implants provide a foundation for full-mouth reconstruction. This can involve one or more restorative services, such as:

  • Dental crowns to replace individual missing teeth
  • Dental bridges to replacement multiple teeth
  • Dentures to replace complete arches of teeth
