Our office is committed to offering the most advanced technology that will help our patients. Dental Implants are not new, however, they have evolved to a point where most patients with missing teeth are candiates for implants. The treatment involves little or no discomfort, and the final results are such the same as natural teeth. Implants can be used for permanent bridgework and teeth, or to stabilize loose dentures. The comfort and confidence that comes with implant supported dental work is the greatest benefit obtained from this type of treatment. Problems with missing teeth, removable bridgework and ill-fitting dentures can now be predicatably and safely remedied with dental implants.
What is an implant dentist?
There has been much information about dental implants in the media and in advertising in recent years. This is further propelled by the exceptional success and predictability that dental implants have to offer. As implants improve and evolve, there are more general dentists and speicialists offering "implant dentistry" in their list of services. This can be a source of confusion for patients that can benefit from this service for a number of reasons. First, specialists such as oral surgeons and periodontists will do only the surical phase of treatment, (that is the placement of implants into the jaws), but do none of the restorative work where teeth and bridgework are placed on the implants. Then there are many general dentists that do the resorative work, but none of the surgery.
An implant dentist, on the other hand, does both phases of treatment. This has been the model of implant dentistry in Europe for over 25 years and is the most cost effective, efficient model. The care is more consistant, no communication errors arise between the specialist and dentist, and overall quality of care is enhanced.
New teeth just like your own
If you have lost one or more teeth and you avoid laughing aloud, smiling, or eating in public because your denture may slip or a space left by missing teeth may show, then you may want to consider dental implants. No matter how many teeth you're missing, dental implants make it possible for you to:
You may have spaces in your mouth where teeth were lost or removed or never grew in. Although these spaces may be embarrassing, traditional dental restorations aren't always the best solution. Removing a complete or partial denture at night may be inconvenient and and you may wish to avoid the discomfort and embarrassment caused by a denture that slips.
If you want teeth that look and feel as though they're really part of your mouth, dental implants may be right for you. Used successfully for many years, dental implants anchor artificial teeth into your jawbone to provide a secure and stable fit. Implants can meet your needs whether you're missing all, a few, or only one of your teeth.
