Implants Dentistry in
Dental implants are one of the most accepted and effective solutions for permanently replacing a missing tooth (or teeth). Our high-quality dental implants offer the feel, function, and appearance of natural teeth.
We often recommend dental implants to permanently replace lost teeth. Implants are small, screw-like structures that are made out of medical-grade titanium. They are surgically placed in the jaw to act as a replacement tooth root. Once the titanium implant is placed, the jawbone will grow around it, holding it in place and preventing bone deterioration. A prosthetic tooth or teeth are then attached to the implant to create a secure, natural-looking smile.
Dental implants are quite effective in preventing dental issues that come with tooth loss including bite imbalance, loss of facial structure, deterioration of the jawbone and tooth shifts. There are several types of implants available depending on your unique needs and budget. We are proud to offer our patients Endosteal Implants, All-on-4 Implants, and Teeth-in-a-Day.
Endosteal implants are the most commonly used type of implant. While most endosteal implants are most often used to support a single missing tooth, they can also be used to provide support for a dental bridge or even a complete set of dentures. Endosteal implants consist of a titanium structure inserted into the jawbone that supports a prosthetic tooth.
All-on-4 implants use just four titanium implants to support an entire arch of new teeth. These implants are placed strategically in order to provide strong and dependable support for artificial teeth. Patients typically experience fast recovery times since only four implants are used. Best of all, a temporary set of replacement teeth can be attached on the day of surgery.
Teeth-in-a-Day allows us to attached temporary replacement teeth to your implants on the day of surgery.
