Are you missing teeth? Would you like to have the functionality of teeth again? If so, dental implants can give you back the confidence you may have been missing. Implants are designed to provide a strong anchor in your jaw bone to which an artificial tooth can be securely attached.
Dental implants not only allow you to restore your smile with artificial teeth, but they also help prevent bone loss that can occur after tooth loss. Patients who get implants and crowns can eat and smile with confidence knowing their teeth have been restored.
A dental implant serves as an artificial "root" for a replacement tooth. It fits into the jaw in the same way your natural root would.
Dental implants are made from materials such as titanium, which is extremely strong and durable. It's similar to joint replacement materials.
Gaps in the jawbone can lead to bone loss over time. Dental implants fill the gaps, stabilize the bone, stimulate growth and reduce bone loss.
Dental implants do not increase your chances of gum disease. They stimulate the jaw to grow and repair to reduce bone loss and gum disease.
Dental implants can strengthen the bone and provide a firmer structure for adjacent teeth, minimizing the loss of other teeth.
By strengthening your jaw, dental implants can improve the integrity of your facial structure by reducing bone loss over time.
Let's face it, having a great smile can build your confidence. Missing teeth can impact your smile and how you feel about it. Dental implants can change the way you live by giving you confidence in all aspects of life!
Our dental implants can restore your smile, reduce your chances of bone loss, reshape your jaw and rebuild your confidence. We can match the color of your artificial tooth with the real ones to create a smile that looks natural and complete. Let us help you regain confidence in your smile!
The dental implant is placed in the jaw in the same area as where the root of the missing tooth would be. An artificial tooth can then be screwed into the implant, completing your smile.
Dental implants have been around for decades and have proven to be very safe. However, they must be installed surgically, which can pose risks. Dr. Endicott will discuss any potential risks with you prior to the procedure.
You may have some jaw pain and discomfort for up to 5-7 days after the dental implants are placed. After that, your jaw should feel normal.
In general, it's best to wait for the jaw to heal from tooth loss. The average wait time to get an implant is 3-6 months.
That depends. Most people can get dental implants, but those with gum disease or advanced bone loss may not be able to get implants. Dr. Endicott will examine your mouth and jaw and discuss any health issues with you that may impact your chances of having successful dental implants.
