s-smile2Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that were first developed half a century ago by a Swedish scientist named Per-Ingvar Branemark. Implants arose from the patient's need to secure loose-fitting dentures. Since the advent of the implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant's usefulness, including the replacement of missing, lost teeth or denture and partial stabilization. Today, implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:

  • Single Tooth Replacement
  • Anterior Replacement
  • Posterior Replacement
  • Full Upper Replacement
  • Full lower replacement
  • Denture Stabilization
  • Partial Stabilization

Types of Implants

There are three main types of implants:

  • The root implant
  • The plate form implant
  • The subperiosteal implant
  • Bone stabilization implant (mainly used for dentures and partials)

The least invasive implant done in our office is the bone stabilization implant. The bone stabilization implant is immediately restored with minor discomfort and is half the price of a traditional implant. It is used to stabilize dentures and partials that man "rock" in your mouth to strengthen your bite. 
The bone stabilizing implant may also be used to restore a single tooth that may be missing in your smile. 

Post Implant Care

Although proper oral hygiene is always recommended for maintaining good dental health, it is especially important when a patient has received a dental implant. Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned, thus causing gums to swell and jaw bones to gradually recede. Recession of the jawbone will weaken implants and eventually make it necessary for the implant to be removed. Patients are advised to visit their dentists at least twice a year to ensure the health of their teeth and implants. Dental implants can last for decades when given proper care.
