Regain a Strong Set of Teeth With Implants

Implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw to support any number of replacement teeth. They’ll stimulate your jawbone, much like your natural tooth roots do. This helps keep it healthy and strong throughout your life. Many patients love this option as it gives them a stronger bite.

If you are ready for this lifelike solution to missing teeth, your dentist at Sisters Dentistry will perform a thorough exam of your teeth, taking digital X-rays. We need to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure first, especially if you are replacing an entire arch of teeth with implants. Patients who have experienced significant bone loss in their jaw may need procedures such as bone grafts or sinus lifts prior to receiving implants. These treatments strengthen and rebuild the jaw.

Your implant options include:

  • Implant Crown – This is ideal if you are missing a single tooth. The crown is supported by an implant, allowing it to feel and function like a regular tooth. It leaves your nearby teeth unaffected. With a traditional bridge, another option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth, your dentist must reshape those healthy teeth.
  • Implant Bridge – An implant-supported dental bridge works well for several missing teeth in a row. Your bridge is supported by implants instead of anchoring to nearby teeth. You avoid having to alter healthy teeth to support the bridge. Plus, you avoid bone loss in your jaw.
  • Implant Dentures – Dentures supported by implants can replace an entire arch of teeth. You’ll no longer need adhesive to keep your dentures secure. You’ll be able to more fully taste your food because this treatment leaves your palate exposed.
  • All-on-4 ImplantsThis procedure uses only four implants to replace a complete arch of teeth in your upper or lower jaw. It’s ideal for patients with some bone loss, as it uses fewer implants to support a customized set of teeth. It’s also a quicker way to regain a complete smile.
  • Mini Dental Implants – If you have significant bone loss, mini implants can be used to secure your teeth. They are smaller in comparison to traditional implants. It’s an inexpensive solution and minimally invasive.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – For patients with widespread tooth loss and damage, a full-mouth reconstruction will give you back your smile. It includes implant procedures as well as surgical and restorative treatments within a single plan.

You won’t need to feel nervous about any part of your implant procedure. Your dentist will numb your mouth so you don’t feel a thing. Plus, sedation is available if necessary. You can opt for laughing gas for gentle anxiety relief or oral sedation for a deeper level of calm. You’ll can also enjoy the peace and quiet of private patient care rooms.
