If one or more of your teeth are missing, there are a number of ways to replace them. An alternative to bridges, partials or complete dentures may be dental implants. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is inserted into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.

Who does this procedure?

If you are having an implant, your dentist may refer you to a dentist who performs dental implants and has further training in this area. Replacing missing teeth with a dental implant treatment is common place at select Able Dental Group clinics.

Who can get dental implants?

If you are in good general health, have healthy gums and have enough bone in the jaw to hold an implant, dental implants might be right for you. If your jawbone has shrunk or if it has not developed normally, you may be able to have a bone graft to build up the bone. A bone graft is a way of adding new bone to your jawbone. Your Able Dental dentist will tell you if bone grafting can be done.

Single or Multiple Missing Teeth

Often times it is only after teeth are lost that we realize the benefits of healthy teeth. Fortunately, the option of dental implant dental implant treatment is available to those suffering from missing teeth, providing them with replacement teeth that are closest in look, feel and function to natural teeth. Dental implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.

  • Your smile and confidence
  • Improved chewing and digestion
  • Youthful appearance
  • Eliminate sore spots under dentures 
  • Prevent bone loss and aging

Implant-Stabilized Dentures

Implants can also be used to stabilize dentures. In some instances, you will have immediately stabilized dentures when you leave our office.

In some cases, implants can be placed the same day as extractions are done. If you have had teeth missing for some time, implants can still be installed. You might have suffered bone loss as bone melts away after extractions.

Most patients express the opinion that discomfort during the implant installation process is comparable to a single extraction.
