Three Reasons to Consider Implant Dentistry

Implant Dentistry

As a provider of implant dentistry, we understand how dental implants have revolutionized the process of replacing teeth.  Whether you have lost one tooth or several teeth, we can provide you with a replacement solution that functions as well as your natural teeth do.  While a solution such as dentures has been around longer and is still a dependable, there are distinct drawbacks associated with removable prosthetics.  If you are unsure of how you want to replace your teeth, we encourage you to visit our office for a consultation so that we can conduct a physical examination, take x-rays and discuss the goals that you have for your smile.  This information, along with your budgetary constraints and amount of time you have to commit, will impact our recommendations.  In general, we recommend implants because they are the most natural solution. However, we know that they are not right for everyone.  

Implants could be the best solution for you if….

  1. You want a smile that looks natural.  To create the visible portion of your implant (crown), we take an impression of your mouth, measurements and use a shade card.  This information is sent to the dental lab so that they can create your new tooth in the exact specifications necessary to blend in with your surrounding teeth.  The results are so natural looking that you will not be able to tell which teeth are natural and which ones are implants.  No one, other than a dentist, will know that you ever lost a tooth in the first place. This way you can smile with confidence and without worrying about your teeth.

  2. You want a hassle-free smile.  Implant dentistry provides you with the ability to take care of your prosthetics just like you do your natural teeth.  Unlike dentures, implants are not removed, soaked, or cared for in any special way.  All you need to do is brush and floss like normal and receive regular dental care from our office.  This will keep your entire mouth healthy without you needing to buy any special solutions, pastes, etc.  Implants are truly hassle-free.

  3. You want a durable, new tooth.  Replacement teeth have gotten a bad reputation for coming loose or slipping out of place and with dentures, that can be the case.  However, with dental implants, you will never have this problem.  We complete the procedure by implanting a titanium rod under your gums and securing it to your jawbone.  Once in place, the metal and bone will fuse together through the process of osseointegration.  This is what makes an implant so strong.  The jawbone provides stability to the implant and the implant provides stimulation to the jawbone, just like a natural tooth would.  This requires oral surgery and a couple of months for the process to be completed but once the new crown has been attached, it will not move.  It will be as secure as a natural tooth which means that you can engage in high impact sports, eat your favorite foods, etc.  The only thing that you will want to remember is to protect it just like you would your other teeth.
