Millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss, primarily due to gum disease, tooth decay, or injury. If you lose one or more teeth, it’s important to get them replaced.
You can restore the look, feel, and function of your smile with dental implants. These implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a strong and sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth.
They are one of the most effective solutions for missing teeth, enabling you to eat, laugh, smile, play, talk, and enjoy your regular activities confidently and without worrying about your smile.
Are you an unsuitable candidate for dental implants because you don’t have enough bone? We specialize in an alternative treatment option: Zygoma Implants.
This treatment is ideal for patients who lack sufficient bone to get traditional jawbone dental implants. Zygoma implants are attached to your cheekbone, which means that you do not need to undergo an additional bone grafting procedure. We restore mouth functionality so you can eat your favorite foods again.
Dental Implant Surgery
If you’re a potential candidate for dental implants, we will perform an initial comprehensive consultation to determine whether implants are the best option for your specific needs. During this time, we will also discuss whether you want fixed or removable teeth.
Occasionally, special surgical procedures are necessary to improve the success of the implants. These procedures include sinus lifts, nerve repositioning, and bone grafting techniques. We are proud to offer these special surgical techniques for our patients and referring doctors.
Dental Implant Healing Period
A healing period of four to six months is considered normal; however, each patient case is unique and certain factors could extend this average timeline.
