Dental Implants

dental implants and restorative dentistryDental implants are the ultimate teeth replacement solutions for lost teeth. Imagine being able to speak and imagine eating again without worrying about your replacement teeth sliding off, enjoying your favorite food, and turning back the clock with a solution that also helps support your facial muscles and gives you a more youthful appearance.

This is all possible with dental implant procedure. What are dental implants? Having implants is like growing new teeth. They are incredibly stable because they are composed of artificial tooth roots. These tooth roots are surgically embedded into, and allowed to fuse with, the jaw bone. Once the prosthetic tooth roots have integrated into the bone, a crown is used to cap over the tooth root and complete your beautiful, life-like, new teeth.

Dental implants are a smart investment because they look and function just like real teeth and are designed to last a lifetime.

Aside from traditional implants, here at The Waterford Dentist, we also offer mini dental implants. The mini implant is about half the size of traditional implants. Like full-sized implants, mini dental implants can replace one tooth or anchor a set of lower or upper prosthetic teeth such as bridges or dentures.

Mini implants can be placed in one visit or in stages. A guide is placed on top of the gums to accurately embed the mini implant into the tissue. It is then adjusted and checked to ensure stability. Right after the tooth root is embedded, the denture or replacement teeth can be placed on top. Mini dental implants are the perfect solution for patients who don't have sufficient bone density for traditional implants.

Thanks to modern dentistry, it's easier and faster than ever to have stable and beautiful new teeth like dental implants. Ask Dr. Heuerman and Dr. Ratz about teeth replacement solutions today!
