With a success rate of 95%, dental implants are the modern gold standard of care for replacing missing teeth. Not only do they create a beautiful yet natural smile, but they also have significant oral health benefits.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Function like natural teeth: Dental implants restore full chewing ability and allow you to perform brushing and flossing as normal.
Prevent bone loss: Jawbone loss occurs when the tooth root is removed but not replaced. It can cause up to 25% loss in width and height in the first year, and shrinkage continues over the lifetime. Because dental implants replace tooth roots, they prevent and even reverse this loss.
Keep adjacent teeth stable and healthy: Neighboring teeth will not drift and move when the missing tooth is replaced with an implant. Dental implants also reduce the load placed on the adjacent teeth, making them less likely to crack or break.
Prevent gum disease: A missing tooth gap can act as a trap for food and bacteria.
Long lifespan: Unlike dentures, which need to be relined frequently to account for jawbone loss and replaced every 10 years or so, dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
Single Tooth Dental Implants
If you are missing a single tooth, one dental implant topped with a crown is the best replacement choice. We use high-tech tools and equipment to ensure a precise fit that seamlessly aligns with the adjacent teeth.
Implant Supported Bridges
To replace three or more adjacent teeth, consider an implant supported bridge. A traditional bridge requires us to remove healthy tooth structure from the neighboring teeth, while an implant supported bridge attaches to one dental implant at each end.
Implant Supported Dentures
If you are missing most or all of your teeth, dentures are a common solution. However, traditional dentures are on a bulky acrylic base and are prone to pinching and slipping. A removable denture can “snap on” to just two implants, while a few implants can support an entire arch of fixed teeth.
If all of your teeth are missing from one or both arches, the All-on-Four may be the best solution for you. Using just four dental implants, we can attach a fixed set of highly realistic replacement teeth at the same appointment as the implant surgery.
Guided Implant Placement
Using digital technology, we will carefully craft a plan for the location, depth, and angle of each dental implant, and then turn it into a surgical guide. Following this guide increases the predictability, safety, accuracy, and efficiency of your dental implant placement. Both the functionality and the aesthetics of your new smile will be their very best, and you will know exactly what to expect.
