Dental Implant Treatment Options
Dental implants are designed to replace missing teeth and created to look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They are a good long-term solution because they are in your jawbone. Unlike a fixed bridge or removable dentures, dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw. If properly cared for, dental implants last a lifetime.
Implants are made of titanium metal that fuses with the jawbone and act as a substitute for roots of teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant to provide an anchor. Implants require two procedures and other implants are able to be placed in a single visit. We will evaluate your individual situation at your initial consultation visit.
Implants are a team effort between the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon and a Restorative Dentist. Your oral surgeon performs the implant surgery, initial tooth extraction(s) and bonegrafting if needed.
Our office also offers a PURE Ceramic implant option. The PURE Ceramic Implant provides a unique esthetic solution to treat patients with specific needs. This implant works well for patients who have a thin gingiva biotype, which requires a specific treatment approach, and also is great for patients who prefer a metal-free alternative. The natural-looking ceramic implant is ivory colored like a natural tooth root and even in cases of thin gingiva biotypes, it does not shine through. The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant System is the result of more than 12 years of relentless research and development in order to comply with premium quality standards.
