Dental implants


Dental implants have been around for over two decades and have a long track record of success. For several years now dental implants have been the ideal treatment choice for tooth loss due to their longevity and bio-compatible properties. When you lose a tooth we know that you want to replace it as soon as you can to maintain function, health, and harmony within your mouth. Dental implants restore the void while keeping the surrounding teeth and tissues intact.

Why Would I Want a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is considered to be the Cadillac treatment option for patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants are the most ideal tooth replacement because they mimic the natural anatomy and function of a real tooth. In addition, the placement of a dental implant can help preserve bone and prevent opposing and adjacent teeth from drifting into the missing space.

Dental implants, if taken care of properly, can outlast any dental restoration. The reason why dental implants last so long is because of their cleansibility. In other words, a dental implant can be brushed and flossed like a natural tooth. The majority of patients report little to no adjustment period with a dental implant.

What Are The Different Kinds of Dental Implants Available?

Depending on which teeth are missing, dental implants can come in various types. Single implants are used to replace one tooth, however there are different types of prosthesis to solve the problem of multiple missing areas of teeth. One style that addresses two or more consecutive teeth is a dental implant supported bridge. These implant bridges allow for multiple teeth to be supported by strategically placing a few implants.

Implant Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures or implant retained dentures are a great way to add stability and comfort to a conventional complete or partial denture. More importantly, an implant retained denture contributes to a better quality of life. Improved denture stability leads to more confidence in public and having to worry less about a denture rocking or moving around your mouth when talking.

Also, the added retention from an implant supported denture means increased comfort and capacity to enjoy foods. After working with many denture patients, Dr. Kalebjian and Dr. Khater have observed that those who decided on having implant supported dentures were able to eat more types of foods and were ultimately much happier.
