Replace

Missing Teeth

A dental implant is a synthetic root that supports a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. Implants are made out of titanium alloy or zirconium. Once you decide to get dental implants, we collaborate to create a plan that provides you with stable, beautiful and functional new teeth.

    Follow-up Appointment

Teeth in a Day starts with diagnostic imaging. This may include such things as digital x-rays and 3D CT scans. The images allow us to take a close look at your jawbone so we can make sure that the treatment is right for you. We can see where it is the strongest. This then enables us to determine the best possible locations for your implant posts, as well as how many posts we might need to use.

This includes the creation of what is known as a surgical guide. The guide acts as a template for placing your implants. It will show us exactly where in your jaw the posts will be placed, what angle they need to be inserted at, and how deep they will need to go. With a surgical guide, we reduce the risk for errors, which also reduces any unnecessary incisions and sutures, as well as reduces post-surgical discomfort and downtime.

On the day of your surgery, we use the guide to place your dental implants. Right after we suture your gums closed, a set of fully functional teeth are secured to the posts with screws. You can eat and speak normally from day one.

You will still need to follow up appointments to make sure you are healing properly. We use a tool called Periotest to monitor osseointegration and determine the stability of your implants. Successful treatment will provide you with long-lasting results. In many cases, dental implants can even last for the rest of your life.

Dental Implant
Options

Single Tooth Impant

A single tooth implant is anchored into your mouth using a titanium post that is implanted into your jaw. A dental implant replaces the entire tooth. Because a single tooth implant is anchored by the post placed into your jaw, the surrounding teeth are left alone and perfectly intact and can preserve the integrity of your jawbone.

Implant Supported Bridges

An implant supported bridge offers an implant alternative to a partial denture. Two or more posts implanted into your jawbone help to secure your new teeth in place. They provide you with the greatest amount of support possible to ensure the strength, security, and longevity of your new teeth.

Full Arch Restoration

We can even replace an entire arch of teeth using dental implants. This type of restoration typically uses between 6 and 8 posts to secure your teeth into your mouth, providing you with stability that cannot be achieved with a traditional denture. Benefits include being irremovable, easy to care for, and comfortable.

Natural Process

The implant post mimics the root aspect of a missing tooth. Once it is in place, the post will slowly fuse to your living bone thanks to the process of osseointegration.

Beautiful Results

Implant-supported restorations are fabricated using the finest materials available today, usually porcelain or zirconia. These materials can be shaped and textured to match the appearance of a natural tooth.

Improved Oral Health

Replacing a missing tooth is crucial to your oral health. Your remaining teeth may shift out of their proper position to accommodate the empty space, leading to significant issues with your bite.

Can I Have More Than One Single Tooth Implant?

A single tooth implant is meant to replace an individual tooth. However, this does not mean that you cannot have more than one single tooth implant in your mouth. Everyone’s tooth loss situation is unique. One patient may be missing one tooth at the back of their bottom arch and one tooth at the front of the upper arch. Another may be missing two or three teeth right next to one another. In each situation, it is possible to have the missing teeth replaced with their individual single-tooth implants. We can help to determine the best implant solution to meet your unique needs.

Is it Possible to Go from Dentures to an Implant Bridge?

It is possible to go from traditional dentures to an implant-supported bridge. Before you can make the switch, though, we first need to perform a thorough oral exam and take scans. In addition to assessing your oral health, we will also need to discuss your general health, including any chronic health conditions you have, what medications you are taking, and if you smoke or drink. Many patients who have lost teeth are good candidates for dental implants, including those who have previously worn dentures. Your exam will allow us to make sure implants are a good solution for you. It will also enable us to determine if there are any factors that can impact your healing and what can be done to increase the success of implant treatment.

What are the Benefits of Switching to an Implant Bridge?

Going from a denture to an implant bridge can greatly improve your life. Dental implants look, feel, and act just like your real teeth. Your teeth will not come loose or fall out. This can significantly increase your confidence. There is no more worrying about your teeth falling out at the most inconvenient moments. Dental implants will not cause sores on your gums. Moreover, care for your dental implants is just like caring for your real teeth. No more removing your teeth to clean them and soak them. They do not come out of your mouth at all.

Will I Need a Bone Graft?

If you have not been wearing your dentures for very long, it may be possible to make the switch to dental implants right away. However, if you have been wearing your dentures for a while, you may need to have a bone graft first. With a bone graft, we can increase the strength of your jawbone, thereby increasing the success of your dental implant treatment.
