Dental Implants

Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular method for replacing missing teeth. In this cosmetic dentistry procedure, titanium supports are surgically fused with your jawbone, and act as an anchor for naturally looking false teeth. Dental implants are not only used for individual tooth replacement, but can also be used when replacing multiple teeth as an alternative to dentures.

Why Get Dental Implants?

Dental implants are extremely natural looking, and people won’t know the difference between implants and your real teeth. It’s a very common dental procedure today within a dentist’s office as many people are choosing implants over a traditional denture. They’re very stable and comfortable, and most people like them over dentures.

Our dental implants are very high quality and are created to last a lifetime. It’s a great investment into your mouth and your smile. We have flexible dental financing as well to help you get your implants today, instead of having to put it off.

Types Of Dental Implants

When you schedule a visit at our office, our dentist will be able to tell you which of the three types of implants is right for you. There are several different kinds, so let’s go over them.

  • Root Form Implant: This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth
  • Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone
  • Subperiosteal Implants: In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.

Should I Get A Crown Or Dental Implants?

There’s definitely different circumstances where you’d want to get a crown instead of a dental implant… or vise versa. When you have broken teeth, or weak teeth, a dental crown is a great solution to repair, or stop a tooth from decaying further.

If you’re already lost your tooth, or it’s a situation where your tooth needs to be extracted, then a dental implant would be the better decision. It ultimately comes down to your unique circumstance. Let our expert trained cosmetic dentist let you know if you should get a crown or dental implants.

Dental implants are really the closest procedure you can have to get the end result of a natural looking and feeling tooth. Sometimes it will come down to just that, what’s your desired outcome… because both could be an option.

How Painful Is It To Get Dental Implants?

Since the dentist will be making an incision in your gums, you’ll be given local anesthesia to numb your jaw during the procedure. Once the effects of the anesthesia wear on, you won’t feel any pain, maybe just some pulling and slight pressure. If for some reason you do feel pain, you’ll let the dentist know right away and he can administer more anesthesia. Our dentists are here to help you have a successful, pain free, procedure.
