Restore Your Bite with Dental Implants
at Dentistry @ 1881
When you lose a tooth, it’s important to replace it immediately! When tooth-loss occurs, similar to books on a bookshelf, the surrounding teeth will begin to collapse. This can create problems with dental alignment and may even lead to periodontal disease. Additionally, missing teeth can lead to a decline in self-confidence. You can restore your smile with permanent dental implants from Dentistry @ 1881. Call us today to schedule an appointment for dental implants.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Complete Replacement: Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, dental implants actually replace the whole tooth, not just the portion you can see. A new crown is supported by a small titanium implant placed into the jawbone, which provides a strong foundation once osseointegration occurs.
Superior Aesthetics: Our dental implants are always topped with custom-made, beautiful porcelain restorations that are designed to resemble natural enamel down to the finest detail.
Full-Mouth Benefits: In addition to replacing missing teeth, implants also help protect the jawbone from shrinking, which preserves the overall shape of a patient’s face.
Minimal Maintenance: All a patient has to do is brush and floss like normal to keep their implants looking and functioning like new.
Lifelong Solution: With the proper care, a dental implant can easily last for decades on end, and in many cases, for the rest of a patient’s life.
Indications for Dental Implants
Ideal candidates for dental implants need three basic requirements: good dental health, stable overall health, and enough jawbone to support the new roots. We can help a patient if they are lacking any, and once they are approved for the treatment, we can use the following restorations to rebuild their smile:
Missing Single Tooth
Instead of having to alter the healthy teeth on either side of a missing one to place a bridge, a single implant root and crown can be positioned within the mouth without affecting the remaining dental structure.
A small number of implant roots can be used to anchor a partial denture or bridge that has a hold much stronger compared to a traditional removable prosthetic. Implant-retained prosthetics are also more natural-looking and have been shown to last longer.
How Dental Implants Work
A dental implant is a small titanium rod that is used to anchor a dental crown or bridge. Dental implants are permanent and offer security to their wearers who won’t have to worry about their restoration slipping or sliding. Using a tooth replacement to mimic an actual tooth can prevent your other teeth from shifting, as well as rejuvenate your jaw bone and gum tissue for a healthier smile.
A trusted oral surgeon will place the implant directly into the socket of the missing tooth. Over time, the jaw bone will integrate with the dental implant, effectively creating an artificial tooth root. When your mouth has successfully healed from this procedure, you’ll return to Dentistry @ 1881 to have your implant fully restored.
