69% of adults aged 35-44 have lost one or more of their permanent teeth
Dental implants provide a long-term solution to replacing a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. With the highest success rate of all tooth replacement options, our specialists meticulously design your dental implants to be a perfect match for a natural-looking, lifelong smile.
As a removable denture alternative, All-on-4® restoration treatment involves precision placement of four dental implants to completely support a full and non-removable replacement for all of your upper and/or lower teeth. Whether you suffer from loose dentures or broken, failing, or infected teeth, you can experience complete restoration with a full set of functional and natural-looking teeth.
Instead of multiple dental appointments weeks apart, in some cases, patients can get their implants placed and new teeth delivered in one day. These immediately-loaded dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch.
Implant-supported dentures are the perfect solution for denture-wearers who want a more stable and comfortable restoration. Before the invention of dental implants, a patient who had lost all of his or her teeth was limited to wearing dentures. The instability and unreliable retention of dentures remains an issue for denture-wearers. With as few as two dental implants, our experienced team can help create a denture that snaps securely into place, resulting in amazing stability and restoring function.
Implants prevent slippage and hold dentures securely in place.
Implants prevent continued bone loss from denture use and help maintain your natural facial structure.
Implants eliminate painful sore spots caused by denture pressure points.
Implants secure dentures allowing you to naturally pronounce words.
Fabricating bridgework requires teeth to be ground down. Often these are teeth that have never had the enamel seal broken by a filling or crown. This can open up the tooth to other problems such as decay and the need for root canal treatment. Dental Implants do not require altering your natural teeth.
Bridges connect multiple teeth together. This makes bridges harder to clean. Dental implant restorations can keep teeth separated and allow for floss to pass between the teeth. Remember - the original tooth was likely lost because it wasn't cleaned adequately.
Removable dentures need to be relined periodically. This is because the denture puts pressure on the supporting gum tissue and underlying bone causing it to be resorbed. Dental Implants stress the bone like a natural tooth from the inside in a manner that stimulates the bone to be maintained.
The clasps that anchor partial dentures to your natural teeth places strain on those teeth that can cause them to loosen over time and be lost. Implants stand alone and do not stress your natural teeth.
