DENTAL IMPLANT

Dental implants are titanium post (like a tooth root) or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are titanium post (like a tooth root) or frames that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth — an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns placed over implants — feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

why consider dental implants

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

Dental Implant Therapy

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

  • Replaces missing teeth
  • Maintains bone*
  • Maintains your youthful appearance
  • Restores your natural smile

Individual Tooth Options

Individual missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants without altering your healthy adjacent teeth. Once dental implants are placed, posts (or abutments) are attached, providing support for your final crowns.

Dental Implants With a Crown

  • Attractive smile
  • Full chewing ability
  • Preserve healthy teeth and jawbone
  • Maintains bone*

Traditional Crown & Bridge

  • Attractive smile
  • Grinds down healthy teeth
  • May lead to bone loss under bridge
  • Greater risk for cavities and tooth failure

Untreated Missing Teeth

  • Unattractive smile
  • Loss of chewing ability
  • May lead to bone loss

Multiple Teeth Options

If all upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture. Due to bone loss, traditional dentures may become loose and unstable over time. Dental implant supported dentures and maintain bone* so dentures remain stable in your mouth.

Implant Supported Dentures

  • Full chewing ability
  • Allows for a complete and healthy diet
  • Remains stable in your mouth

Traditional Dentures

  • Loss of chewing ability
  • Difficult to maintain a healthy diet
  • Loose and unstable over time
  • May lead to bone loss

Why Consider Overdentures

Too many people who have conventional dentures don’t wear them for the simple fact that they don’t stay in place. Dental implants offer a way to keep dentures in place and allow you to go about your daily life with confidence.

The use of dental implants to stabilize dentures has proven to be successful for many people. The number continues to grow as word spreads about the effectiveness and long-term durability of the treatment. In fact, it has been reported that dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted implanted surgical device.*

The Problems With Loose Dentures

Millions of people around the world are missing enough teeth to require the use of a denture. Many of them struggle to keep their dentures secure, particularly in the lower jaw. If you have this problem, you already know about the embarrassment of slipping dentures, not being able to eat the foods that you love and the ineffectiveness of denture adhesives. Fortunately, there is a way to make your denture work the way it was intended: stabilize it with dental implants.

    • Restores proper chewing, allowing a better diet and improved health
    • Improves speech and confidence
    • Increases comfort with less irritation of gum tissue
    • Ends the cost and inconvenience of denture adhesives
    • Often can utilize your existing denture
    • Minimally invasive procedure

Overdenture Options

With any elective procedure, you have options to consider with your doctor. Click on the options below to see which one may be best for you.

Fixed dental implant-supported overdenture

Dental Implant Placement

If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, a custom-made denture may be secured using dental implants. The number of implants will vary for each patient.

Make Custom Overdenture

You will be fitted for a custom overdenture that attaches directly to the implants. The holes in the overdenture will be covered after attachment.

Overdenture Attachedt
Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants to stimulate the jaw and maintain bone.* Your dentist can remove the denture when needed for maintenance and cleaning.

Removable dental implant-supported overdenture

Dental Implant Placement
If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture that can be removed by the patient for cleaning.

Custom Overdenture Created
You will be fitted for a custom-made bar that attaches to the dental implants to support a new overdenture. Your existing denture may be modified to be worn during this period.

Attach Custom Overdenture
The new overdenture will have attachments which snap or clip it into place. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants to stimulate the jaw and maintain bone.* You will be able to remove the denture easily for cleaning.

Dental implant-stabilized overdenture

Dental Implant Placement
If all your lower teeth are missing, another option may be to stabilize your removable denture using a small number of implants. This can sometimes be a cost-effective solution.

Overdenture Fitting
After healing, abutment posts are attached to the implants. Your current denture can sometimes be modified, or a new denture can be created.

Overdenture Attached
The modified denture is snapped into place, where it is retained by the dental implants and supported by the soft tissue. You simply snap the denture out each night for cleaning.
