The Best Way to Restore Your Smile
At Pinnacle Dental Group, our team of dental specialists are proud to offer reconstructive dental services such as dental implants to treat tooth loss. Our patients experience this due to a variety of reasons, from tooth decay to serious injury. This can present significant complications for people beginning with problems chewing or eating to eventual deterioration of the jawbone. Using the latest advancements in dental technology, combined with years of specialty training, our dental specialists are able to transform patients’ smiles using new teeth dental implants.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are titanium screw-like posts that are surgically embedded into your jawbone to act as a replacement for roots of missing teeth. Over time, the bone surrounding the implant will fuse to the implanted post. Drawing on support from the bone, it can securely anchor a prosthetic crown or bridge. This will result in improved oral function and appearance for you.
Get a Healthy Smile with Dental Implants
We understand the importance of a healthy and beautiful smile. Whether you are looking to improve your appearance or regain confidence, dental implants may be the best solution for you. Dental implants can:
- Restore Your Smile: They are designed to look and normal.
- Improve Your Oral Health: Unlike dentures or bridges, they will not require that surrounding teeth be altered to support them.
- Improve Your Speech: They are securely anchored in your jaw, which can improve your speech by eliminating the clicking or slipping often associated with loose-fitting dentures.
- Enhance Your Comfort: Because they become a part of you, they eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
- Improve Your Quality of Life: They can greatly improve your quality of life by making it easier to eat the foods you love and by giving you the confidence to smile.
Your smile is an important part of who you are. At Pinnacle Dental Group, we are dedicated to helping you achieve and maintain the smile of your dreams. We can give you back your smile and improve your quality of life.
Benefits of Implants
Dental implants offer a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, they improve your oral health by:
- Preserving natural bone: Dental implants don’t just replace missing teeth—they also help preserve the jawbone that supports them. That’s because when you lose a tooth, you no longer have stimulation in the bone from the root, which can eventually lead to bone loss.
- Preventing bone loss: Dental implants help stimulate and preserve the jawbone by replacing missing teeth. This helps to prevent the bone loss that often occurs with tooth loss.
- Stabilizing adjacent teeth: Bridges require support from adjacent teeth, which can eventually lead to decay or gum disease. Dental implants are self-supporting, so they don’t put any additional stress on your other teeth.
These benefits are just a few of the reasons why dental implants are becoming increasingly popular. If you have missing teeth, or if you’re considering getting dentures, talk to our team at Pinnacle Dental Group for more information about whether dental implants might be right for you.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Are You Missing Teeth?
Most people with one or more missing teeth are good candidates for dental implants. Many people that have dentures and experience problems with the fit and support would greatly benefit from implants.
The first step in the process is to schedule a detailed dental assessment with us that includes a comprehensive dental exam, full set x-rays, and possibly some scans to analyze the state of your jawbone. The entire dental implant process, from assessment to completion, usually occurs over a 6 to 8-month period. Our dental specialists always try to ensure that the process is comfortable and doesn’t affect your business or social and family activities.
Types of Implant Procedures:
Our oral surgeons will help you choose the best dental procedure for you. We offer a variety of options, including:
- Single tooth replacement – A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth.
- Multiple teeth replacement – Several implants can be used to support a bridge, which can replace two or more teeth. This eliminates the need to grind down the adjacent teeth for support.
- TeethXpress® – This is a method for full teeth replacement that can be completed in as little as one surgery and one visit with our Dr. This is an especially good option for patients that have lost all of their teeth or are considering getting dentures.
The Implant Procedure
The first step in the dental implant process is to have a consultation with one of our specialists. During this visit, we will assess your smile and develop a personalized treatment plan. If you are determined to be a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is to schedule surgery with our dental specialist. Surgery usually takes place under local anesthesia or IV sedation, and the entire dental procedure usually takes about an hour.
After surgery, you will need to take some time to recover. Most patients report that recovery is fairly easy and that they experience minimal discomfort. Once your implants have healed and fused to your jawbone, we will place the dental prosthetic on top of the implant. This can be done in as little as one visit, and you will be able to enjoy your new smile right away.
