Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss that restores any missing teeth from root to crown. They look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth and can last up to a lifetime with proper care. Plus, our dental crowns blend seamlessly with your smile!
Thanks to our expert dentists, Drs. Steinbach and Van Gorden, we’re proud to offer zirconia dental implants that allow you to smile with confidence. They’re biocompatible and fuse directly with your jaw, filling the gaps in your smile and protecting your strong bone structure.
Dental implants offer several benefits that other tooth replacements can’t match, including:
- Restore jawbone density
- Improve your ability to chew with ease
- Unrivaled comfort and stability
- Natural look and feel
- Easy to maintain
- Long-lasting results
Our Implant Solutions
Based on your specific dental situation, we’ll suggest implant solutions that will work best for your needs. We know each patient is unique and needs customized treatment. Depending on how many implants you need, we can offer different options, including:
Single or Multi-Tooth Replacements
Single-tooth restorations replace one or more teeth by using an individual implant for every tooth. Similarly, multi-tooth replacements use two implants to support a bridge of replacement teeth. These
restorations are perfect for people who want to preserve their jawbone strength.
Dental implant solutions act as your natural tooth root, so single and multi-tooth replacements preserve your bone structure and provide the most natural-feeling functionality.
Full-Arch Tooth Replacement
If you’re missing an arch of teeth, you and your dentist may decide to employ a full-arch tooth replacement. This restoration option includes sturdy dental bridges that we custom-create for you. Using six to eight implants, we’ll support your permanent bridge without having to place an implant for every dental crown.
We can even use this dental implant solution for your upper or lower jaws, depending on your jawbone density. Ask your dentist about this helpful procedure during your consultation to find out whether you’re a candidate.
Snap-In Implant-Supported Denture
Similar to full-arch replacements, snap-in implant dentures are a unique device that allows you to remove your dental restorations. We’ll place implants to support your dentures, which you can take out for cleaning.
The snap-in device is easy to use but still sturdy, giving you a dependable restoration that looks and feels natural. Many patients prefer this implant-retained denture because it’s more reliable than traditional dentures and adhesives. Your dentures stay firmly connected to your implants, creating the best solution for dentures.
The Restoration Process
Consultation — Your journey to a rejuvenated smile starts with a consultation with one of our qualified implant dentists. We’ll use innovative technology that helps us design a precise treatment plan for you.
Placement — Once our skilled dentists have created your treatment plan, our implant dentist will surgically place your implants. Then, your jawbone will bond with the fixture through a process known as osseointegration. This step typically takes between three to six months.
Smile! — After some time for healing, our dentists will place your new permanent dental crowns atop your implants, which blend seamlessly with your smile. You’ll leave our office that day with the fully functional, stunning smile of your dreams!
