What are
Dental Implants?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Dental implants typically have three parts

The Implant

A screw that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what permanently attaches to your jaw.

The Abutment

A permanent, but removable by your doctor, connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.

The Crown

This is the part of the tooth that you can see. Itís usually made of zirconium or porcelain for durability and good looks.

Solution

Problem

Patient had an uncomfortable upper denture and a lower partial that was falling apart. He was losing his teeth both from his lower jaw as well from the partial. He had researched dental implants and selected our office for his treatment. He was looking forward to finding ONE office to handle all of his needs instead of going from office to office to office.

Solution

Full mouth implant reconstruction with implants on top and bottom. Teeth in a day with teeth that stayed in place when he left. He was thrilled since he did not have to have a denture at all. His teeth were solid and stable after surgery. His final porcelain/zirconia teeth worked GREAT. He said his cheeks hurt from smiling so much.

Dentures

One major benefit of having quality form fitting dentures is they truly are a functioning set of teeth that will look and feel great. Modern dentures are natural looking and fit so much better than they used to. The issue of a comfortable fit is something that bothers many people who may have experienced the older and less comfortable dentures. But, dental technology has advanced and new materials are being used for dentures, which mean a vastly improved set of dentures and life.
