Dental implants are unlike any other traditional tooth replacement treatment. Instead of just replacing the biting surface of a tooth, they also restore the root structure, which makes a vital difference. By anchoring your prosthetic to dental implants, you’ll be able to not just complete the basics, like eat, speak, and chew more comfortably—you’ll also be able to enjoy a smile that replicates nature’s design and looks and feels completely natural.
Dental implants themselves are small titanium posts that are placed below the gumline to restore the root structure of missing teeth. Due to their biocompatible nature, they fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This allows them to provide the area with stimulation and blood flow to keep it from deteriorating, just like the roots of your natural teeth. Once this process is complete, we’re able to attach a permanent crown, bridge, or denture to restore your smile.
Dental implants have a wide array of unique benefits to offer patients, including the following:
The best way to learn whether dental implants can help restore your smile is to schedule a consultation with our team. During this visit, we’ll examine your jawbone structure, ask you about your goals, and walk you through the process so you know what it entails. Based on our findings, we’ll be able to outline a customized treatment plan for you explaining how dental implants will be used to restore your smile.
For one missing tooth, we can place a single dental implant below the gumline. Once it has fused with the jawbone, we’ll attach an abutment followed by a customized dental crown to fill the gap between your teeth.
Instead of having to alter your natural teeth to place a traditional bridge, we can secure it to your mouth with two dental implants placed at either end of the gap in your smile. It will help keep surrounding teeth aligned by filling the space in your arch.
Instead of having to rely on natural suction to hold your denture in place, we can secure it to anywhere from four to eight dental implants that are surgically placed below the gumline. That way, you won’t have to worry about slipping or shifting when you eat or speak.
The entire dental implant process is customized based on factors like what type of restoration you require, how many dental implants you need to have placed, and whether you need any preparatory treatments like a bone graft. These cost-determining factors will be outlined for you during your initial consultation, and our team will walk you through any potential dental insurance benefits. We also offer flexible additional financing through CareCredit to make paying for your treatment easy.
