Dental Implants

You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!

What are dental implants and what can they do for me?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are so natural looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.

What is treatment like?

This procedure is a team effort between you, your dentist and your periodontist. Your periodontist and dentist will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Depending on your specific condition and the type of implant chosen, your periodontist will create a treatment plan tailored to meet your needs. It will be important for you to work as a team with your periodontist and dentist to reach your treatment goals.
What can I expect after treatment?

As you know, your own teeth require conscientious at-home oral care and regular dental visits. Dental implants are like your own teeth and will require the same care. In order to keep your implant clean and plaque-free, brushing and flossing still apply! After treatment, your periodontist will work closely with you and your dentist to develop the best care plan for you. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Look, feel and function closest to that of your natural teeth
  • Eliminates the need for healthy teeth to be ground down
  • Help to stimulate bone tissue and gums, which helps to maintain facial structures
  • Does not require the use of any adhesives or clasps
  • Can help eliminate the discomfort and insecurity often associated with loose, ill-fitting dentures.
