WHAT IS A DENTAL IMPLANT?

A dental implant is a post, usually made of titanium alloy, that is anchored in the jawbone. A dental implant acts as an anchoring point for a permanent dental device, such as a crown or dentures.

Some of the most common uses of a dental implant include:

  • Single tooth replacement | With a single tooth replacement, a dental crown is attached to the dental implant. This effectively creates a new “tooth” that fills in the gap left by a lost tooth.
  • Multiple tooth replacement | In the form of a permanent dental bridge supported by dental implants, this technology can be used to successfully replace multiple missing teeth.
  • Implant supported dentures | Using dental implants as the foundation for an implant-supported denture, our team can permanently replace missing teeth. Implant-supported dentures are a fantastic solution for people missing many or all teeth.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR IMPLANTS?

Implant patients come from many different walks of life and can be any age. If you’ve lost teeth due to injury, disease, or decay, you could be a great candidate for dental implants. If you know that you definitely do not want to wear traditional removable dentures, dental implants are a great alternative.

We can help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants when you visit our office. We’ll do a complete evaluation of your dental and medical history and then make a recommendation.

THE BENEFITS TO DENTAL IMPLANTS

Some of these benefits of dental implants include:Dental implants

  • Permanence | Dental implants are designed to provide a long-lasting solution to missing teeth. Unlike other restorative dentistry techniques, dental implants are intended to be a permanent solution to a previously bad situation.
  • Strength | When you lose teeth, your jawbone loses some of its strength and can deteriorate over time. A dental implant can restore support to your jawbone and help keep your jaw healthy.

We are thrilled to offer this amazing dental technology to our patients who have suffered from tooth loss, and we love to see what a difference dental implants can make. If you would like to discuss dental implants in further detail, contact us today!
