Serving as THE GOLD STANDARD in modern dentistry, dental implants are the most progressive replacement option to deliver the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. If you’re looking to create a younger smile while repairing severely damaged or missing teeth, dental implants can make a dramatic improvement. Implants can be used in single or multi-tooth restorations.
Dental implants are so exciting because they are a permanent solution for patients who are missing teeth and would otherwise need dentures. Our team of periodontist and prosthodontist specialists works together to provide comprehensive implant treatment options personalized to each patient’s individual needs. This team approach allows us to provide all implant treatments, from digital planning to surgical placement to restoration, all under one roof.
Traditional methods of replacing missing teeth involved bridges and dentures. Bridges and partial dentures are not ideal because they are dependent on the support teeth which in turn they can traumatize. Full dentures pose functional challenges due to loose fit and poor stability while chewing. These treatments typically only last from 5-10 years time before needing to be replaced. Dental implants, however, are the only permanent restorative option that can last a lifetime.
While denture patients avoid certain foods too challenging to eat due to limited chewing function, dental implant patients can again enjoy a healthy, well-rounded diet once they have healed. They can enjoy corn-on-the-cob, bite into a crisp apple, and chew a succulent steak worry-free and with great ease. Just like with natural teeth, dental implants need proper home-care of brushing and flossing and yearly cleanings at the dentist.
