What are Dental Implants?

If you’re looking for a removable denture option, traditional dentures are both effective and affordable. However, many of our patients enjoy the comfort, ease, and security of implant dentures that don’t slide around or cause discomfort. Additionally, taking out your dentures regularly to eat, sleep, or clean your smile can be a hassle for some people.

Instead, dental implants are a permanent option that feels just like real teeth. This restorative dentistry procedure actually implants a new replacement root into your jawline. In other words, your dental implants will function exactly like your natural teeth when you chew, eat, and talk. In fact, they might feel better than your teeth did before. Since we create dental implants out of metal and porcelain, they will be beautiful as well as fully functional.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are safe and effective. Additionally, with modern technology, the process is easy and painless.

Before we place your dental implants, we will assess your jawline. During this assessment, we determine whether an implant is a good option for your smile. If you choose to go forward with dental implants, we will first implant a metal rod into your jawline. This rod effectively serves as the root of your tooth. Once this rod is secure, we will send you home with a temporary tooth.

During the time between your first and second appointment, your jaw and your muscles will grow around your new dental implants, allowing your smile to accept a new tooth. In the meantime, we will sculpt and fit a beautiful new tooth for your smile. Once your jaw fully heals, you will come back to our office in order to place your new permanent tooth.

Best dentistry I’ve ever been too. The staff make you feel comfortable following through with the procedure, the environment is always neat, and I could not be more satisfied with the results! Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who has a problem with their smile and would like professional service done well.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

With dental implants, you both feel and look younger. No longer will you have to live with missing teeth. Additionally, you don’t have to replace your dentures every time you want to eat or sleep. From here on out, you’ll be able to talk, sleep, eat, and drink without thinking about your dentures.

Additionally, you’ll save your jaw from deteriorating. One of the benefits of getting dental implants that most people don’t know about is bone retention in your jaw. When you have a full set of permanent teeth, your jaw becomes strong yet again, and your smile gains strength, too.
