Why Should I Consider Dental Implants?

Family Dentistry recommends dental implants over other restorations because they are the most predictable, longest lasting replacements for missing teeth, and have a 98% treatment success rate.

Unlike traditional bridges and denture complications, dental implants are resistant to decay and infection. Inserting the implant will not have an impact on surrounding teeth or previous dental work, as is often the case with traditional bridges. With the use of dental implants as a restorative solution for missing teeth, natural tooth alignment and bite are maintained.

How does Family Dentistry Place My Implant?

We make our dental implant patients feel at-home by beginning the treatment process with an in-depth consultation. During this time, patients meet with one of our specially trained dentists to determine the best tooth restoration option for their particular needs.

If dental implants are selected as the right method for you, a trusted oral surgeon will place the titanium post into your jawbone.

Following recovery, you’ll return to Family Dentistry for the crown. We work closely with a nearby CERAC certified lab to create durable, beautiful crowns for our patients. To get the best results, we scan the patient’s mouth and send the images to the lab. There, they make the restoration and send it back to us within an hour and a half. This crown can be placed the same day, with the patient leaving with a great fitting tooth.

In the event a patient requires multiple tooth restoration, we offer bridges supported by implants as well as implant-supported dentures.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?

  • While the cost of implants may be higher initially, the long term costs of alternative restorations make dental implants a better financial investment in your oral health.
  • Since dental implants integrate directly into the jaw bone, bone health is preserved. Traditional treatments, such as bridges and dentures, do not stimulate the jaw bone, making it more likely for tissues to weaken and deteriorate over time, which can lead to additional tooth loss.
  • Dental implants also preserve alignment by preventing teeth from shifting to fill the gap caused by a missing tooth. Placing an implant helps protect the balance of your bite, reducing risk of additional oral health complications and the need for unnecessary dental work in the future.
  • From a cosmetic standpoint, dental implants are indistinguishable from natural teeth. The implants and crowns, bridges and dentures will restore the aesthetics and function of your smile.
