Why Choose Dental Implants?

Dental implants allow patients to regain fully functional and natural-appearing smiles due to tooth loss. Dental implants are an alternative to ordinary dental bridges or dentures to fill in the gaps left in your smile caused by missing teeth.

Implant dentistry focuses on creating smiles that have the natural stability of real teeth. Tooth implant smiles look and feel authentic, and they maintain biological stimulation to prevent bone loss and that “sunken-in” appearance often caused by missing teeth.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are an “artificial root” used to provide a foundation for replacing missing teeth. Over time, the implant will fuse to your jawbone, forming a strong anchor for your new teeth. Modern dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

There are two types of dental implants used today, titanium and zirconia (ceramic).

Titanium Dental Implants

Titanium is a metal used because of its strength, lightweight, and ability to fuse with bone.  Statistically, they have a 98% success rate and can last for 30 years or more.

Zirconia Dental Implants

Zirconia is a metal-free “ceramic” material that is white like natural teeth. These implants offer exceptional aesthetic results with the same function and reliability as conventional, titanium implants. Dental implants can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a set of full upper and/or lower teeth.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

1) The Implant: A screw, titanium or ceramic, that serves as a root for your new teeth. This is what fuses to your jawbone.

2) The Abutment: A connector that supports and holds a tooth or set of teeth.

3) The Crown: This is your new tooth that is placed over the implant.

Accelerated Implants

We use Straumann’s hydrophilic SLActive® implants that accelerate osseointegration, which reduces the healing period from 6-8 weeks down to 3-4 weeks for most indications. By reducing the healing time you can complete the implant process faster as compared to non-active implants.
