What Are Tooth Implants?

Dental implants are restorations that replace missing or decayed teeth to renew your oral health. These restorations consist of an implant post, an abutment, and prosthetic teeth. They can replace a single tooth with an implant-supported crown or multiple teeth with implant-supported bridges or dentures, including All-on-4® dentures. Our reliable restorations help you regain the integrity of your bite and the beauty of your smile.

Implant-supported restorations are popular because they provide a permanent base, which means they won't slip or fall out. The base consists of the implant post, which is made from body-safe metals like titanium. The post performs the same function as your natural tooth root and stimulates your jaw. This helps to prevent bone loss and preserve your facial structure.

Dental Implant Pretreatments

Our team is dedicated to providing the range of treatments, including pretreatments, that you need to safeguard your smile and boost your oral health. To promote a successful dental implant procedure, we will evaluate your teeth, gums, and jaws to determine if any pretreatments are necessary.

We do everything we can to preserve your natural teeth, but severely decayed or broken teeth may require extractions if they can't be saved. Our team offers skilled extractions to preserve your dental health. We perform simple and complicated extractions before placing your dental implants.

If your jawbone is too thin or brittle, it won't support the implant post. That's why we offer bone grafts to supplement additional bone to strengthen your jaw and improve its density. This additional support allows the implant post to fuse successfully with your jawbone and provide a firm base for your dental restoration.

When you don't have enough space for an implant below the sinuses in the upper jaw, we offer sinus lifts to add an extra layer of protection. This procedure involves gently lifting the sinus membrane and placing a layer of bone or body-safe material to ensure the implant post does not come in contact with your sinuses.

You can trust that we will only recommend the pretreatments you need for a successful dental implant procedure.

Our Dental Implant Process

We begin your dental implant journey with a gentle exam and use our powerful CBCT scanner to determine if you're a good candidate for an implant-supported restoration. Our team will sit down with you to discuss the results of your exam and then craft a treatment plan that is tailored to meet your specific needs and smile goals. If you have a failed implant from another practice, you can visit our office, and our team will perform an exam to determine what happened and the best steps to correct the issue.

Our friendly team uses modern technology, including computer-guided surgery, to precisely place your implant post in the most strategic spot. After this procedure, you will take time to heal and allow the post to fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once you have healed, you will return to our office, and our compassionate team will fit your custom restoration. We artfully match your implant-supported restoration to the same size, shape, and color as your natural teeth, which results in a beautifully blended smile.

Tooth Implant FAQs

Open and honest communication is necessary to build trust. That is why we encourage you to voice your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your oral health. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are durable and can last for many years when properly cared for. The prosthetic teeth can last for 10-15 years. The implant post is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone.

All-on-4 implant-supported dentures can replace your entire arch of teeth for the top, bottom, or both arches. Our dentist will carefully evaluate your smile to determine whether you qualify for this particular treatment.

Dental implants are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss your restoration twice a day, just like your natural teeth. It's also necessary to maintain your biannual dental appointments so our friendly general dentist can verify the integrity of your dental implant.
