Implant Applications

Implants have added many more options for dentists to help replace missing teeth.  Implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or when there are multiple missing teeth, serveral implants can be placed to sustain a bridge.  Bridge supported implants allow patients to avoid the frustrations associated with partial dentures.  Dentures that move during eating, smiling and speaking can be greatly stablized with either traditional implants or with the more economical mini implants.   

Implant Surgery

I have placed over 250 implants and I am still amazed at how little discomfort is experienced during and after surgery.  In fact, having a tooth extracted is much more a difficult of a recovery than implant surgery.  Surgery is performed under local anesthetic, just like a filling.  Small vibrations during site preparation is usually all that is experienced by the patient.  Out of all the implants I have placed, only 3 patients have need more than Ibuprofen after the procedure!

Investing In Your Furture

The great thing about implants is that you can use them now and later.  For example, an implant placed now that would replace only one missing tooth can be use 10 to 15 years later to support a bridge with another implant.  It is the one of the few things in dentistry that allows us to do that.  Most treatments will wear out and then we have to start all over again.  Even though implants might be expensive at first, their logevity is what your paying for in the beginning.  Placement either immediately after tooth extraction or with in 6 months or so is a good idea.  Once a tooth is extracted, bone will begin to atrophy(shrink away).  If too much bone is lost, implant placement can be more expensive or not possible.
