Dental Implants
  • Introduction To Implants

    Dental implants are artificial devices used by dentists to replace missing teeth. Implants come in many different sizes and shapes. Implants which rest on top of the bone are called subperiosteal implants.

    There are also very narrow implants which are placed within the bone, and are called blade implants. Those implants which resemble the root of the tooth are called root form implants, and they are placed into the bone to act as support for a prosthetic crown.

    Dental Implants are substitutes for teeth and they are today's best alternative to your natural teeth. They offer you a permanent and secure solution for replacing one or more teeth. They are made of biocompatible materials. Implants function as anchors or support for traditional forms of dentistry, such as crowns, bridges or dentures.

    Many of our patients will tell you that implants have changed not only their smiles and their overall appearance, but also their lives!

    There are two parts to every tooth: the crown, which is the visible part of your tooth, and the root. The root is the unseen part which anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable support for your crown. When an entire tooth is lost, shrinkage of the jawbone may occur making the face look older. Dental implants can stop this process.

  • Benefits Of Dental Implants

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS BENEFITS TO DENTAL IMPLANTS:

    * Dental implants eliminate the pain and discomfort of removable full or partial dentures.

    * Dental implants can eliminate the numerous embarrassing inconveniences of removable partial and full dentures.

    * Dental implants never decay.

    * Dental implants never require root canals.

    * Esthetically, they support teeth that look like real teeth.

    * Functionally, dental implants feel and act like real teeth.

    * Replacement teeth allow you to speak with confidence in a relaxed and natural tone.

    * Dental implant supported dentures eliminate the need for distasteful adhesives as with conventional dentures. There is no longer a need to use "glue" when your prosthesis is anchored to implants.

    * Dental implant supported dentures can actually improve the taste of food. With less plastic covering the roof of your mouth, you can enjoy natural flavors and sensations again.

  • Are You A Candidate For Implants?

    Self Test: If you have been thinking about getting dental implants, you may be wondering if you are a possible candidate for this procedure. You can take this simple test to see if this procedure might help you.

    Ask yourself the following questions:
    1. Am I missing one or more teeth?
    2. Do I hide my smile because of unsightly spaces between my teeth or because I am missing teeth?
    3. Do I lack confidence when I smile, speak or eat?
    4. Am I having trouble eating, chewing, or speaking properly?
    5. Are my teeth loose, or am I in need of treatment for advanced gum disease?
    6. Do I have dentures that slip or cause sore spots when I chew?
    7. Do my dentures need to be relined frequently because of bone loss?
    8. Do I carry my complete or partial dentures in my pocket or leave them at home?
    9. Am I having any problems with existing crowns or bridges, either functionally or cosmetically?
    10. Are the teeth holding my bridge loosening or moving?
    11. Can I wait six to nine months for the entire implant process to be completed?
    12. Will I be willing to commit to the high standard of home care that is necessary to properly maintain a dental implant?
    13. Will I follow up with regular dental checkups?

  • Dental Implant Supported Denture

    Notice the life-like appearance of this implant support denture.

    An implant-supported over-denture is attached to implants, while a regular denture rests on the gums, is not supported by implants, and tends to fit less firmly in the mouth.

    An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.

    Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn't need the extra support offered by implants.

    However, you can receive an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw. You can remove an implant-supported denture easily. Some people prefer to have fixed (permanent) crown and bridgework in their mouths that can't be removed. Your dentist will consider your particular needs and preferences when suggesting fixed or removable options.
