Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Unlike uncomfortable dentures or bridges, dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Implants can also allow a person who has lost a tooth or multiple teeth regain the ability to eat and smile. You may also be eligible for a mini dental implant; we’ll take the time to discuss which option is better for your individual needs.

Do I Need Dental Implants?

Losing teeth makes it more difficult to eat and chew food, and over time the jaw bone can also recede due to disuse. It can cause a significant decrease in quality of life — 29% of denture wearers eat only soft or mashed foods and 50% avoid many foods altogether. However, replacing teeth as soon as they are lost keeps the mouth functioning correctly so you will, hopefully never have to mash your food! If you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, implant dentistry might be right for you.

Why Is It Important to Replace Missing Teeth?

Replacement of missing teeth is essential to maintaining the bone in the jaw which, without teeth to keep it strong, can disintegrate over time. When a tooth is replaced as soon as possible after it is lost, the implant — which is made from titanium, just like hip and other joint replacements — replaces the root of the missing tooth. It is then used as an anchor to secure the replacement tooth or teeth without harming the healthy natural teeth that surround the space. This reduces the future risk of root canals and decay under crowns.

All-On-4 Dental Implants – Get Teeth In A Day

All-On-4 is a new type of permanent dental bridge that provides exceptional aesthetics and comfort for patients in need of a single missing tooth, four to six teeth implants or an entire arch. It’s designed to give you permanent placement of your new dental implants or fixed bridge in as little as one appointment.

All-On-4 is a fixed solution for patients who have numerous teeth that are missing or that cannot be restored. It combines the satisfaction of a fixed bridge with the confidence of a permanent appliance, and for most patients there’s no need for pre-installment procedures such as bone grafting, sinus grafting or lifting. In addition, no incision or suture placement means no healing time.

All-On-4 uses titanium implants, which have the ability to fuse with living bone. Over time, the implants become part of the jawbone and serve as a long-lasting foundation for your new teeth. In fact, stimulating the bone to prevent further bone loss is one of the most important benefits of this procedure.

I have been coming to this Dentist Office since I was in 8th grade, and I am now a 23 year old man. The service here is top notch, reasonable prices, and the staff is really awesome. Alianis (Ali) one of the two orthodontists at the office is awesome. She really cares about her patients and ensures that I leave with all questions/concerns addressed.
