Dental implants are a strong, stable tooth replacement solution that can enhance your smile and allow you to eat, speak and smile like you once did. Missing teeth can have a negative impact on your overall health and confidence. Greg DeVor, DDS, offers single-tooth dental implants and bridges that look, feel and function like your natural teeth and can help restore your smile and improve your quality of life. If you have multiple teeth missing, an implant-supported denture may be right for you.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
The first step of getting a dental implant involves having a biocompatible titanium post placed in the jaw. This post acts a tooth root and eventually fuses with the bone. If you don’t have enough bone to support an implant, you may need to add bone with an augmentation procedure before implant placement. After the post has healed and is fully fused with your jawbone, Dr. DeVor will restore the top of your implant with a custom-made natural-looking crown or bridge that blends right in with your other teeth. Depending on your specific needs, the implant process can be completed in a few months to a year.

Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a valuable investment in your overall health and well-being. They offer unmatched stability and strength when compared with other tooth replacement solutions such as conventional bridges and dentures. Tooth structure must be removed from adjacent teeth to attach a conventional bridge, but with an implant, no other teeth are affected. Regular dentures can shift and often require the use of messy denture creams to stay in place. Sturdy, comfortable and stable, implant dentures snap on to two or four implants that are placed in the upper and lower jaws.

With proper oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist, implants can last a lifetime. Implants also help preserve your remaining jawbone, prevent other teeth from shifting and maintain your facial structure, which can give your face a more filled-out appearance and make you look younger. Having the ability to eat foods you once avoided due to missing teeth can help you improve your diet, and implants can help you avoid gum disease, decay and other costly dental problems down the road. Implants are also easy to care for — you brush and floss just as you would your natural teeth. Implant dentures should be removed and cleaned daily.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Patients who are considering implants must have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant. If you are undergoing treatment for cancer or suffer from acute periodontal disease, implants may not be the right option for you. At your initial consultation, Dr. DeVor with perform a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth, take X-rays, discuss all of your tooth replacement options and create a comprehensive treatment plan that’s tailored to meet your individual needs.

Dental Implants are prescribed to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

An implant post is surgically placed into the area where the tooth is missing. In a few months bone will fuse to the implant.
A customized crown or bridge is permanently cemented to the implant. Dental Implants restore the natural beauty, function, and health of teeth.
