Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement option for patients of all ages who are considering teeth implants. However, it's vital that you understand what dental implants are and if they can meet your smile's needs. When you visit our office for the first time, we'll sit down with you and break down what a dental implant is and how they can improve your oral health.

As an artificial appliance crafted to replace your tooth's root, a dental implant sits just above your gum line and can anchor various implant-supported restorations, like crowns. After we explain dental implants, we'll conduct an extensive oral exam. Using cutting-edge technology, like 3D CBCT scanners, our team will create detailed images of your tooth, gums, and jawbones. Once we determine you're an ideal candidate for dental implants and you feel comfortable moving forward, we'll begin the placement process.

Simplifying the Pretreatment Process

During your oral exam, we may decide pretreatment is necessary before you can receive your implants. Our office is equipped and prepared to meet all your pretreatment needs under one roof. Whether you need a tooth extracted or your jawbone reinforced, our dental team is here for you. Some of the pretreatment options we offer include:

Sinus Lifts: A sinus lift is a surgical procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw. The added bone helps reinforce your jawbone above your molars and premolars, providing support for your dental implant.

Bone Grafts: When you have a weak or brittle jawbone, you may be an ideal candidate for a bone graft. A bone graft is a procedure that takes a small amount of bone and places it in your jaw at the site where you're getting your dental implant. The procedure helps secure your dental implant and prevent it from shifting over time.

Extractions: We strive to save your natural teeth whenever possible at our practice. However, an extraction may be necessary if your tooth is severely infected or suffering from extensive tooth decay. Our dentist will make the procedure fit seamlessly into preparing for dental implants.

Helping You Choose the Right Restoration

As part of our comprehensive approach to dental implants, we offer various implant-supported restorations to replace either a single missing tooth or an entire arch of teeth. No matter what restoration you require, you can expect them to last years of repeated use and appear just like your natural teeth. Our treatment options include the following:

Crowns: If you're missing a tooth, an implant-supported crown may be the perfect option. An implant-supported crown replaces your entire tooth from root to crown. In addition, we can place multiple crowns throughout any part of your smile.

Bridges: An implant-supported bridge may be a perfect option if you need to replace multiple teeth in a row. This restorative appliance uses two dental implants placed on either end to anchor the bridge. We'll customize your bridge to match your surrounding teeth.

Dentures: Implant-supported dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth, just like traditional dentures. Because they're fixed in place, they provide exceptional functionality and eliminate slippage. You also won't have to remove implant dentures to clean them. Instead, you'll care for them like you would your natural teeth.

All-on-4®: Our practice is excited to offer All-on-4 dentures. This restorative option provides you with secure and reliable implant-supported dentures with only four dental implants. Not only can this reduce your overall time in the exam chair, but it can also lessen the overall impact on your jawbone.
