Repair Your Powerful Bite by Getting Tooth Implants

When you visit our practice for implants, you benefit from Dr. Ted Thomas’ decades of experience restoring patients’ smiles. He will begin with a thorough assessment of your mouth. Using advanced technology, we evaluate the condition of your remaining teeth and your jaw and plan your teeth replacement. We will also determine if any surgical procedures are necessary in preparation for your implants.

The right implant option will depend on how many teeth you need to replace. We offer:

  • Implant Crowns – This option can replace a single missing tooth. A dental crown attached to the implants gives you a completely functional artificial tooth.
  • Implant Bridges – To replace multiple teeth, you need a dental bridge. You make it more stable by anchoring it to implants.
  • Implant Dentures – Dentures are a great teeth replacement option if you are missing a full arch of teeth. You can secure your dentures with these artificial tooth roots to make them feel like natural teeth. They can be removable or stay securely in place.
  • All-on-4 Implants – This is an advanced procedure that uses fewer implants to secure your restorations. You can replace your teeth faster with this treatment.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – We can rebuild your smile with implants and other restorative solutions.

We know that replacing teeth can be a cause of anxiety for some patients. We have designed our practice with your comfort in mind. You can ask any questions you have about your restorative care options. You can also ease your mind with comforts like neck pillows and weighted blankets. We also have sedation available to reduce your anxiety.

Invest in Your Quality of Life

Getting implants will do more than restore your smile. They improve your overall health and your quality of life for decades to come. Implants will:

  • Bring back the function of your lost teeth
  • Generate bite force and chewing power comparable to someone with a full set of teeth
  • Allow you to eat whatever you want, such as apples, celery, corn on the cob, and steak
  • Preserve your jaw health by providing stimulation that encourages new bone growth

Common Questions About Dental Implants
What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone, like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants also stimulate your jawbone, reducing your risk of bone loss, which is common after someone loses teeth.

Can dental implants be removed?

Technically, dental implants can be removed, although it is unlikely you would ever need to have that done. Once your implants have been placed in your jawbone, they completely bond with it and can last for decades, if not the rest of your life. Your replacement teeth that are anchored to your implants have an average life span of five to 10 years.

Are dental implants worth it?

Although they are more expensive than conventional dentures, dental implants are a worthy investment in your oral and overall health and your quality of life moving forward. They’re a potentially lifelong solution that preserves the structural foundation of your mouth and prevents future tooth loss. Implants also allow you to eat what you love, and help you enjoy better nutrition, digestion, and health in the long term.
