Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The "tooth" placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it's like growing a new tooth! Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don't move around when they talk, and don't need to be taken out at night. Because we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown fabrication, there's no need to be referred to another office.
One-day implants are used to support and hold dentures securely in place
to eliminate all the annoying problems from unwanted movement. One-day
implants permanently anchor your dentures, so you never need to take them
out at night.
All in the same day, you can arrive with problem dentures or missing teeth and leave with fully functioning teeth. Four to six implants will support your teeth and allow them to withstand the pressure from chewing without the long waiting time for the bone to heal.
In the past, a patient would be referred to an oral surgeon for dental implants. After this doctor implanted the titanium posts, the patient would return to the regular dentist to have the restoration placed on the implant. At our practice, we perform the entire process in one visit. And equally as important, there is no waiting period of six months with gaps in your smile.
Are conventional dentures your best option? We design natural-looking dentures that don't slip! We use the latest breakthrough techniques to provide stable, well-fitting dentures. Goodbye to embarrassing moments when eating or speaking. Let us make your life more comfortable.
Let's say you need to have a tooth extracted as it just can't be saved because decay has "taken it over." Normally, a great solution to this is a dental implant. However, some patients may not have enough strong bone in the jaw to support an implant. This presents a problem. After a tooth has been extracted, the bone loss starts almost immediately, which will make placing a future implant difficult or impossible. Should you need a tooth extracted in our practice, we can fill the extraction site with a bone graft to help preserve the strong bone. If you decide not to have an implant, grafting can still aid in significantly reducing bone loss.
