Implant DentistryIf you're missing one or more teeth, you've probably discovered that there are a few other things you're missing too, like your natural smile or the ability to eat and chew foods you desire. Fortunately, with today's advanced dental implant solutions, you can replace missing teeth with dental implants, a life-long solution that will help you regain your teeth's natural function, and have you smiling and enjoying life again with confidence.
Dental implant procedureThe dental implants we place at Allstar Smiles center for dental implants represent state-of-the-art dental technology.
As the only solution that replaces both the missing teeth and root structure, dental implants play a critical role in preserving your surrounding bone structure, making dental implants the preferred missing teeth restorative choice over fixed bridges, partials or removable dentures.
The dental implant consists of a small post made of titanium, a biocompatible material that our bodies won’t reject, which we place in your jawbone. As the dental implant post bonds with the bone, it serves as a replacement for the root portion of the missing teeth, providing strength and stability for your new replacement tooth.
Dental implants at Allstar SmilesFrom the simple to the complex, we’ll care for your entire dental implant treatment in our office from start to finish. You won’t need to see multiple specialists who focus on just one aspect of your dental implant treatment, or travel to different offices. Whether you need a single dental implant, bone grafting, or multiple dental implants placed, our comprehensive dental implants and restorative experience combined with our one-on-one highly personalized care ensures you’ll get long-lasting results for the health, beauty, and function of your smile all in the comfort of our care.
Our first step in your dental implant treatment is a comprehensive evaluation of your existing teeth, bone levels, and medical history.
High-tech dental implant imagingAs part of your diagnostics and dental implant treatment planning, we’ll use the latest in 3D CAT scan (CT) imaging. The 3D CT scan allows us to see cross-sectional and three-dimensional views of your jaw and existing teeth, from which we can determine the breadth (width), depth (length), and density (thickness) of your jawbone in the areas dental implants are desired. With this detailed information, we can determine with precision the dental implant placement, optimal dental implant size, and type of dental implant, as well as any areas requiring additional bone support (via bone grafting) to ensure optimum results.
Once your dental implant treatment plan has been determined and agreed upon, your dental implants will be placed. For your comfort, we'll use anesthesia and relaxation techniques to help eliminate any discomfort or fear you may have regarding your dental implant treatment.
Dental implants same dayA question we are commonly asked is: “When will I have new teeth in my smile once my dental implants are placed?” Our answer: The day you come in for your dental implant placement, you’ll leave our office with teeth in place too!
Dental implant benefitsWith 40+ years of clinical research and a remarkable overall success rate, dental implants have the best long-term prognosis of any method of tooth replacement, making dental implants the preferred alternative for replacing missing teeth. The primary benefits of dental implants include:
Dental implants preserve bone levels. When a tooth is lost, bone deterioration (resorption) begins within a very short period of time from a lack of bone stimulation. By placing dental implants, we help preserve the bone levels in your jaw, providing a strong, stable foundation for years to come, making dental implants superior to bridges, partials and dentures.
Dental implants look, feel & function like natural teeth. Since a dental implant is anchored securely in your jaw, the permanent all-ceramic crown we place on the dental implants functions far better than a traditional bridge, partial or denture, allowing you to bite and chew once again with comfort and confidence.
Dental implants help maintain integrity of facial structure. By preventing the bone deterioration that would normally occur with missing teeth, the facial structures remain intact when dental implants are placed. This is particularly important with multiple missing teeth, as the lower one-third of the facial profile can appear to ‘collapse’ or sag if dental implants are not placed to preserve the bone, giving you a prematurely aged appearance.
Dental implants: the clear choiceThe success rate and multi-faceted benefits of dental implant placement as a long-term restorative solution make today’s dental implants the clear choice for replacing missing teeth. With your new dental implants, you can regain the capabilities you once had with your natural teeth, giving you a second chance at eating, laughing, and simply enjoying life with confidence!
