As the modern alternative to bridges and dentures, dental implants are by and large dentists' preferred solution to missing teeth. Because they are anchored by a titanium post attached to the jawbone, dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With implant-supported teeth, patients can eat, chew, and speak with renewed confidence.
A dental implant consists of a small, titanium post that replaces the tooth's root. Like a natural root, the implant is supported by the jawbone, creating a firm, reliable foundation independent of surrounding teeth. A dental implant is the only tooth-replacement solution that does not rely on healthy teeth for support.
In addition to stabilizing a crown, bridge, or denture, dental implants also promote jaw-bone . New bone growth helps support a fuller facial profile for a more youthful appearance. Dental implants can also last for a lifetime, as long as they're cared for properly, and they've maintained a 98% success rate.
At Bryan Family Dental, we'll conduct a thorough evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. The quality of your oral health and bone density are both taken into consideration; and if it turns out dental implants are right for you, the dentist will place them using Cone Beam, 3D imaging technology for extreme precision and predictability.
When the implants are secure, Dr. Whittaker will complete the restoration by designing and fabricating a handcrafted, permanent crown or denture. He will finish the implant at our office, and you will leave with a seamlessly blended restoration matching the color and size of your natural teeth.
Because dental implants mimic nature, patients experience restored function, which allows patients to once again eat hard-to-chew foods, enjoy improved speech, and feel confident in knowing their smile will last a lifetime.
