Experience The Many Perks Of Real-Feel Dental Implants

We offer a broad selection of restorative dentistry treatments because patients come to us with a large variety of dental problems and smile goals. We’ll help you determine the best treatment for your specific case by thoroughly assessing the current state of your mouth and answering your questions.

If you need to completely replace teeth in your smile and your jaw is strong, dense, and thick enough, you should consider dental implants. Compared to many other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer many perks because they:

  • Can restore up to 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural chompers
  • Hold your replacement teeth firmly in place so you don’t have to worry about them falling out or deal with messy adhesives
  • Prevent  jawbone deterioration so you don’t have to feel self-conscious about a “sunken in” look
  • Do not require any preparation of your remaining healthy teeth to be placed
  • Can last a lifetime if you maintain good oral hygiene and routine dental cleanings and exams

You may think this all sounds too good to be true or that there must be a catch. For instance, you may be curious or even leery about what you have to do to “maintain good oral hygiene” if you get dental implants. There’s no catch! Caring for your dental implants is very simple. Just like your natural teeth, all you need to do is:

  • Brush your teeth with toothpaste using a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day (or following every meal, if possible)
  • Floss at least once daily
  • Use a mouthwash or rinse if recommended

If you do decide to get dental implants, we will verify you are a good candidate using state-of-the-art dental technology. If your jaw is not suitable for dental implants, we may still be able to help by providing mini dental implants instead. Before we place dental implants, we will also thoroughly plan your procedure using our cutting-edge dental tools, such as:

  • Digital X-rays to get a clear view of your mouth and jaw while emitting a fraction of the radiation of traditional X-ray systems
  • Panoramic X-rays so we can view your jaw from every angle
  • Digital scanners, for fast, precise impressions of your teeth without having to use messy, uncomfortable impression methods

Depending on your needs, we offer several different options to restore your dental implants, including:

  • Dental crowns to replace individual teeth
  • Dental bridges to fill the gap left by multiple adjacent missing teeth
  • Dentures to restore a full arch of teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both
  • All-on-4® or All-on-6 dental implants that replace a full arch of teeth using just four or 6 dental implants

Thanks to our CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and manufacturing) software and in-house milling machine, we can even provide same-day dental crowns if you are replacing individual teeth!

Regardless of the treatment you receive, we will do our best to keep you comfortable with various amenities. We can even help relieve dental anxiety with dental sedation options!
