Dental Implants

Cosmetic ProceduresA permanent solution

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are inserted directly into your jawbone, replacing the roots of missing teeth. They can provide firm and lasting support for single tooth restorations (crowns), multiple teeth restorations (bridges) or entire dentures. If you have lost a tooth or several teeth, nothing performs better than a successful dental implant.

Get rid of your bridge or denture!

Dental ImplantsOnce fully integrated into your jawbone, a dental implant has none of the problems associated with bridges (wear of the neighboring teeth, pain and unnatural appearance) or dentures (tilting and shifting, pain, discomfort, periodic re-fittings and difficulty chewing). Implants look and feel almost identical to natural teeth!

Prevents bone loss

After a tooth is lost, the jawbone below it gradually loses strength and eventually recedes. Using implants is the only way to avoid this deterioration: implants connect the jawbone to the natural forces that keep it healthy and strong.

Dental ImplantsCavity-free

Dental implant restorations never get cavities, and gum disease is very rare in patients that follow the standard preventive care guidelines.

You can trust Our Doctors

Dental implants, while relatively straightforward in concept, involve sophisticated aspects of the biology and physics of the mouth. Your chances of a successful implant increase dramatically if your caretaker has the necessary knowledge and experience to deal effectively with the complexities of the human mouth.

Our doctors understand the important uses of dental implants in restoring missing teeth on an entire dentition. The success of dental implants is described very well in the following excerpt from The International Journal of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry.

“Osseointegrated dental implants become a predictable treatment option for single, partially edentulous, and completely edentulous spans in selected patients. The survival rates for implants-supported single- and multiple-tooth restorations have been reported to be comparable to those for implant-supported prostheses in completely edentulous patients. However, the goal of modern implant therapy entails more than just the successful osseointegration (survival) of the implant. A successful result must also include an esthetic and functional restoration surrounded by stable peri-implant tissue levels that are in harmony with the existing dentition. Stable levels of peri-implant bone represent one defining parameter of implant success. In fact, Albrektsson et al, Albrektsson and Isidor, and Roos et al defined a successful implant in terms of bone loss around an implant restoration, which after the accepted crestal bone loss of no more than 1.5 mm during the first year after placement should be no more than 0.2 mm during each subsequent year.”
