What Are Your Dental Implant Treatment Options?
At your initial consultation, we'll review whether your gum and jawbone are strong enough to support Dental Implants. If not, we can still help!
Treatments to strengthen your bone and gums can help prepare your mouth to receive Dental Implant surgery. Bone grafts and sinus lifts are often performed on patients who are not currently candidates for implants -- after you heal, you'll be able to reclaim your confidence with a fresh, brand new smile!
The main advantage of dental implants is that they can replace missing teeth with no impact on the remaining teeth surrounding the gap. We start with inserting a titanium rod, allow it to heal, and then place a permanent crown attached to the rod. Implants are also impervious to decay, so they are an alternative to root canal treatment. Implants can be used to replace one or more teeth.
If you're missing more than one tooth in a row, we can use 2 implants to create a bridge. Using this method, there is no impact to the neighboring teeth and you're left with a permanent replacement that can cover a wide gap.
Removable Dentures come with a variety of complaints ranging from having to cut out certain foods in your diet to general discomfort. With Implant Dentures, that is no longer an issue. By using the right number of implants you can secure a permanent or removable denture in place, you'll be able to regain your comfort in every day things like eating, speaking, and smiling.
An important part of a successful implant is the bone available in the jaw for the implant to hold onto. We may suggest a bone graft, if you're going through an extraction first, to help preserve the bone in preparation for implant placement. According to every case, we will choose the best bone graft material to place in the empty socket after an extraction to help with that goal. Grafting can be done after extractions, but they are most successful when done at the time of extraction.
