Implants

  Now you do not have to go through life with missing teeth or even bridges (the procedure in which perfectly good teeth are ground down to replace a missing tooth).

  Dental implants are one of the most exciting innovations in dentistry today and can be used to replace both single and multiple teeth.

      What are Implants?

      Dental implants are artificial roots that teeth can be attached to. The implant is placed in place of the missing tooth and is made to match the adjacent teeth. These restorations can be undetectable from natural teeth and restorations we are accustomed to.

      Our Dentist also use implants to retain dentures and in their most sophisticated use to do full mouth rehabilitation and eliminate removable dentures.

      Our Dentist has done a multitude of these cases and because of his advanced training can offer you multiple levels of care using dental implants to restore your mouth.

      Dental Implants are made of titanium metal and are coated with a bone-like material called hydroxyl apatite. When placed in the jawbone, the body's natural bone attaches to this bone-like coating, it is this fusion that allows the implant to work like a natural tooth.

      Now with the use of even more sophisticated porcelains and advanced training, single and multiple tooth implants can look as esthetic as natural teeth. The placement of implants and these restorations can seem simple and very comfortable. Patients in our practice can choose sedation dentistry for most of their dental procedures.

      Are implants always successful?
      Modern implant techniques have been in use since the 1950's. Improvements in procedures and materials have given implants a ten year average success rate of 93 percent or better. This enviable success rate is improving every year!

      Can failed implants be replaced?
      In the unlikely event an implant fails it can usually be replaced by another. In fact, most patients wouldn't have it any other way!

      Is everyone a candidate for implant treatment?
      In general, anyone healthy enough to undergo routine tooth extraction or oral surgery is probably able to receive an implant. There are some health conditions that warrant special consideration. Certain chronic diseases, heavy smoking or alcohol abuse may contraindicate implant treatment. After careful evaluation of your health history, your dentist will alert you to any conditions that may effect your treatment. Remember, age is not a factor.

      Will others know I have dental implants?
      Today's implant treatment enables you to have your new teeth look, feel and function like your own. Even though others will be unaware you have dental implants, many patients are so pleased they tell everyone they know. Dental implants offer some of the finest restorative results possible in modern dentistry.

      How long does complete treatment take?
      Depending of the type of implant and replacement teeth selected, the total time can be as little as a few weeks to six or more months. If bone grafting is necessary, further time may be needed. Your dentist will discuss your options with you and advise you of the time requirements.

      Will I need to be hospitalized?
      Most implant procedures are performed in the dental office under local anesthesia. Although, some patients may desire pre-medication or IV sedation to control apprehension. Hospitalization may be necessary for complex surgical procedures or general health reasons.

      Is there pain or discomfort?
      Many patients report implant surgery less troublesome than having teeth removed. With modern anesthesia and close attention to post operative care you can expect minimal discomfort.

      Will I be without replacement teeth at any time?
      Immediately following surgery you may be instructed not to wear replacement teeth in the surgical area. If required, this period is usually short, and temporary teeth are soon provided so you can quickly "get on" with your life.

      How much does implant treatment cost?
      The cost of implant treatment depends upon the number and type of implants placed and the type of replacement teeth needed. For example, replacement of a single tooth with implant treatment costs about as much as a dental bridge. The bridge necessitates "cutting down" adjacent teeth for crowns. Implant treatment does not. More complex treatment, such as bone grafting, will add to the cost. The cost can vary in different countries, so it's is best to consult your dentist. The improvement in your self confidence, comfort, eating habits and appearence will make dental implant treatment one of the best investments you've ever made!

      Are implant supported teeth as strong as my natural teeth?
      Yes. Research shows that in many cases implants are actually stronger then natural teeth. Compared to removable teeth, studies show implant supported teeth have 100 percent or better chewing efficiency. Dental implants can make it possible for you to enjoy your favorite foods, improve your nutrition and your appearance!
