Losing a tooth can affect your health as well as your appearance. In fact, for most people it is a traumatic experience that leaves many questions in the minds of our patients. We completely understand how you feel! That is why we provide all of your treatment options along with anticipated treatment times and cost so you can make a good decision that fits into your lifestyle and budget.
One of the most modern and effective ways to replace missing teeth is with titanium dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium screws that we surgically implant into your jawbone. We will make sure that you are comfortable for your treatment and offer sedation dentistry for added comfort, if you prefer.
Once we complete the implant surgery, we will allow your body time to heal. Your bone and implant will integrate together in a process called osseointegration. This creates a strong foundation for your bite.
Once healing is complete, we will uncover your dental implant. Your dental implant is designed to support a dental crown that will complete your smile and your chewing surface. We custom design each dental crown to match your existing teeth, so that your smile looks natural and no one notices your dentistry. If you want a convenient and long-lasting solution to your tooth loss, dental implants can offer you the freedom you have with your natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
In addition to being attractive, dental implants are also convenient. You can brush and floss them just as you would your natural teeth. No special devices or tools are necessary to keep your dentistry and gums healthy. Maintaining regular dental appointments and professional cleanings is important because good gum health is essential to the success of your dental implant.
Because we place implants directly into your bone, they also help with bone retention. When you lose teeth, your bone begins to deteriorate. A dental implant can replace your tooth and maintain your bone structure.
Dr. Wright is able to eliminate the guesswork for placing dental implants now by using 3D imaging which provides a multi-dimensional view of teeth, bones, nerves and sinus cavities. This allows for more accurate and safer positioning of the dental implants.
- Simplifies the dental implant treatment process
- More accurate than non guided implant placement
- Less treatment time
- Greater patient satisfaction
Dental Implant-Supported Dentistry
When you lose multiple teeth, finding a stable replacement can pose a challenge. Dental implants can retain dental bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures, giving you additional stability and allowing you to maintain a healthy diet. Having dental implant-supported dentistry can allow you to have confidence in your smile! You no longer have to tolerate loose dentures or delicate bridges. Strategically placed dental implants stabilize and support your dentistry and help you retain bone density, giving you the best of both worlds.
