A Dental Implant can come in several forms, but the most used dental implant takes the form of an artificial titanium tooth root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Replacement teeth are anchored to dental implants in the form of a crown, bridges, partial dentures, removable or non-removable dentures. Dental implants are much stronger and longer lasting than natural teeth, because they’re not susceptible to decay or disease. Many consider dental implants better than natural teeth, and they are considered to be one of the best replacement tooth options available.

Dental implants are made from bio-compatible titanium, which means that your body will accept the implant as a natural part of your anatomy. The body will not reject the implant. Your bone tissue will grow around the surface of the dental implant, creating a solid foundation for your tooth replacements. The dental implant is placed under the gum, so you will not be able to see it.

Dental implants, as we know them today, have been available since 1975. The surgery is highly predictable and considered superior to traditional dental bridge placement. With a 97% success rate, dental implants have helped millions of people have the natural-looking, fully functional smiles they deserve.

Dental Implant Types

Mini Dental Implants

These implants are smaller in diameter than root form implants. We use them to temporarily or permanently stabilize a lower denture. Mini dental implants can be used permanently if a patient has a minimal bone density or can’t withstand traditional implant surgery. One advantage of Mini implants is the ability to be placed and restored in a single visit. For this type of procedure, we typically use IMTEC implants.

Root Form Dental Implants

These Dental Implants are similar in structure to natural, single-rooted teeth and are the most widely used. They are the perfect choice for most dental patients needing a single tooth implant procedure. The brands we use are Lifecore / Keystone, Nobel Biocare, Nobel Brandemark, Biohorizons, and Straumann (ITI). The selections we use depend upon the patients needs.
