Restore your natural smile with a dental implant

When a tooth is extracted or congenitally missing, you want to replace that tooth for function, cosmetics, and comfort. An implant also provides a strong foundation for fixed and removable prosthetics. An implant will be the closest treatment to serve as a natural tooth. There are different types of dental implants depending on your bone condition, treatment plan, and cost. Dental implants are essentially a biocompatible screw anchored into the jawbone, attached to abutment posts and a natural looking crown. The result of a dental implant is the most natural and comfortable replacement for an actual tooth.

The highest implant technology available

Missing teeth means some type of restorative replacement, whether that is a removable partial or denture. A dental implant provides more stability and security from a removable appliance and greater comfort. For those who fear an appliance from slipping, you may be a candidate for an implant supported partial or full denture. This will ensure greater stability, more comfort eating and speaking, and a brighter smile. We offer complimentary, state of the technology, 3-D ConeBeam Imaging and an X-Guide, to deliver patients with high quality, more accurate care. Call our office today for a consultation.

BENEFITS of Dental Implants:

  • Implants are pretty much decay and cavity proof because they are made from porcelain and titanium, so you do not have to worry about getting a cavity again!
  • Dental implants can restore your chewing ability if you are missing one or more teeth.
  • An implant not only restores your tooth function, but preserves the jaw bone from receding and deteriorating.

Dental Implants FAQ

What is the post-treatment care for my dental implant?

An implant is slightly uncomfortable following the procedure, but can be managed usually with over-the-counter pain medications. You should expect some localized swelling, pain and bleeding close to the implant site for a few days. Ice can be applied to help alleviate some pain and swelling. You should avoid eating any hard foods for several days. Avoid disturbing the surgical site to prevent infection or complications. You definitely should schedule a post-operative appointment with your dentist to ensure your implant is healing correctly.

Am I a candidate for a dental implant?

Not everyone is a good candidate for a dental implant. You should have sufficient and stable bone and healthy gums for an implant’s success. People with uncontrolled medical disorders like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer are not good candidates for a dental implant.
