Do I Need Dental Implants?
Dental implants may be the perfect option for you if you're struggling with issues like a severely infected tooth that can't be saved or extensive dental trauma. A dental implant is an oral appliance that replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. Our dental implants are typically made of titanium or other durable materials that help improve their longevity. During your initial visit with our dentist, we'll help you determine whether implants meet your unique oral needs.
How Dental Implants Affect Your Smile
Dental implants can positively impact your smile in more ways than one. Our dentist is more than happy to sit down with you and outline some of the reasons dental implants may appeal to you. Dental implants can improve your smile's functionality, aesthetics, and overall health in more ways than one, including:
- Stimulating bone growth in your jaw
- Preventing jawbone from receding and weakening
- Improving your ability to chew and bite
- Preserving your natural facial features
- Keeping your surrounding teeth from shifting
- Renewing the confidence you have in your smile
Our Implant-Supported Restorations
Regardless of how many missing teeth you have, we have restorative options to meet your needs. Our office is proud to meet your restorative requirements, from implant-supported crowns to dentures. Some of the implant-supported restorations we provide include:
Crowns: A crown is a type of restoration that replaces a single missing tooth. Crowns are popular among patients because of their durability and natural appearance, which helps them seamlessly blend in with your smile.
Bridges: Implant-supported bridges are a restoration that replaces multiple teeth in a row. We anchor this restorative option with implant posts on either end of the appliance for a secure and comfortable fit. Bridges also prevent the remaining adjacent teeth from shifting out of place.
Dentures: If you're looking for a way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, implant-supported dentures or overdentures may be for you. This restoration offers exceptional comfort, functionality, long-lasting durability, and a natural look. Additionally, implant-supported dentures are permanent and fixed in place, which makes them easy to clean and maintain.
Preparing Your Smile for Dental Implants
Our dental office works with a trusted local specialist to provide pretreatments for dental implants. Whether you need extractions or bone grafts, our team will coordinate with the specialist to help you get the care you need. Some pretreatment options we'll help you with include:
Bone grafts: When you have a weak or brittle jawbone, you may be the perfect candidate for a bone graft. A bone graft is a surgical procedure that takes a small amount of bone and places it where your dental implant will be placed. The procedure helps secure your dental implant and prevent it from shifting out of position
Extractions: Our practice strives to save your natural teeth whenever possible. However, tooth extraction may be necessary if your tooth is severely infected or suffering from extensive decay. Our team will work with you to ensure that the area safely and properly heals.
Sinus lifts: Like a bone graft, a sinus lift is a dental procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw. The bone helps reinforce your rear teeth, including your molars and premolars.
