Get a Brand-New Smile With Teeth Implants

There are millions of Americans walking around without all their teeth in place. However, you no longer have to be one of them. Implants are the preferred way to replace missing teeth.

Although the idea of dental implants has been around for thousands of years, it wasn’t until 1965 that the first modern implant was placed in a patient. Dental providers and patients alike soon saw the difference that implants can make on a person’s life. Although there is nothing like a patient’s natural tooth, implants make a strong case for themselves.

Dr. Tate will place your implants using digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, and a computer-guided placement procedure. The dental implant will then become one with your jaw, forming a sturdy base to support replacement teeth. The titanium in an implant will actually bond with your jawbone in a chemical process. Within a few months after placement, your implants will be ready to have new replacement teeth attached to them.

We have several ways to use implants to revive your smile and your bite. Our most popular options include:

  • Single Implant-Crown Combination – If you just have one missing tooth or your missing teeth are spread out over your jaw, then this approach will work for you. Your dentist will put an implant where your tooth was and, after the healing process, attach a crown to it. The implant and crown will completely restore your missing tooth and give you a strong bite once again.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – This type of bridge works well when you have several missing teeth in a row. It will anchor in place using at least two implants and contain artificial teeth in the middle. The bridge will close the gap in your smile and make biting and chewing easier, all while blending in with the rest of your teeth.
  • All-on-4® Dental Implants – Dr. Tate can secure full arches of fixed teeth using just four implants per arch. After your implants are placed by a specialist, he can attach a set of temporary teeth to your implants. You’ll use these teeth for biting, chewing, and smiling until your final restorations are ready for placement. Once the implants are fully healed, Dr. Tate will complete the process by placing the more permanent teeth. The best part is, your teeth stay firmly in place without adhesive. You’ll never need to remove them for cleaning – just brush and floss like you did when you had your own teeth.

Common Questions About Dental Implants
What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that we place in your jaw to act as artificial teeth roots. They are an ideal way to replace missing teeth because the implant fuses with your jawbone to form a base for new teeth. Implants also help keep your jawbone healthy by stimulating the growth of new bone.

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.

When should I get dental implants?

If you are missing any number of teeth, you owe it to yourself to consider getting implants. They are designed to function as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. Implants make crowns, bridges, and dentures more secure. They prevent bone loss by stimulating your jaw, and they restore your biting power so you can eat anything you want.
