What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a wonderful alternative for treating empty spaces caused by tooth loss or for stabilizing a loose fitting denture. The procedure is virtually painless and is usually completed in 30-45 minutes.
Why Choose a Periodontist?
A Periodontist is a specialist that receives three additional years of training after dental school that is specifically focused on dental implants, bone, and soft tissue. Our surgeons are also credentialed in IV sedation to give you a calm and relaxing experience.
Why Choose a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are a long term permanent solution for tooth loss. In most cases, dental implants offer the best aesthetics and can’t be differentiated from your natural teeth.
Why is a Dental Implant Better than a Bridge?
Dental implants are a quick efficient solution to replace a missing tooth. A bridge requires cutting on adjacent healthy tooth structures or removing good crowns to close the space. Research shows a dental bridge has an average life span of 10 years and replacement becomes complicated when a bridge fails. A dental implant is maintained well, can last a life time.
How does a Dental Implant Stabilize my Denture?
Most patients that have had dentures for ten or more years have experienced a change in the way their denture fits and is retained. They will slowly lose bone over time making it difficult to chew on food or speak with their denture. A denture can physically be snapped onto a dental implant allowing for much more proficient speaking, chewing, and confidence in your denture.
