Dental Implants

Single unit placement and restoration-Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth or several missing teeth.  The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.  Following this healing period, we will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post.

Conventional Implant dentures and partials- While you can replace a single tooth with implants, you can also retain your removable prosthesis with implants.  This system of implant-supported dentures or partials helps to replace a full arch of teeth to restore your smile, oral health, and oral function.  implants can enhance the comfort of your smile and allow you to chew, eat and speak without worrying about slipping dentures. 

Using implants to stabilize your dentures or partials can help to prevent bone loss after tooth loss, which helps to maintain your facial shape and volume.

  • Mini implants-A mini dental implant is just what it sounds like — a dental implant that is smaller than a standard implant. Mini dental implants are most often used to anchor a denture for a more secure, stable restoration. Many of our patients find implant-retained dentures to feel and look more like their natural teeth.

We may recommend mini-implants if you want a less-invasive alternative to standard dental implants. Mini implants hold many benefits, including:

  • The process for placing a mini dental implant is less invasive than placing a standard implant, resulting in a more comfortable treatment and shorter healing period.

  • Mini dental implants are more affordable than standard implants.

  • In some cases, we are able to place the mini-implants and attach the dentures in the same day, resulting in a faster tooth replacement process.

  • Implant maintenance cleanings- dental implants require regular preventative maintenance just like your regular teeth.  While stains and tartar accumulate around your teeth, they will do the same on your implants. To prevent damage, the hygienist will use special instruments to clean your implants as well as your tissue to maintain healthy oral hygiene.
