Dental Implants

Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Oftentimes, it is very difficult for people to tell that you have a replacement tooth because implants are so esthetic.

Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like more traditional treatment options because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant.

Dental implants are secure, allowing you to forget the annoying worries of dentures.

Success rates for dental implants are highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for reliable tooth replacement.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that we place into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge without affecting adjacent teeth while eliminating the need for removable partial dentures. They can also be used to support a denture in order to make it more comfortable and secure.

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants may be a tremendous option for you. Working in close cooperation with a well trained restorative dentist along with proper patient maintenance, we can provide implants to last a lifetime.

Dental Implants Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.

Evaluation:

If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, Drs. Pescheret, Hyde, Greising and Tzanos will perform a comprehensive dental/radiographic examination and health history.

Depending on your case, a three-dimensional X-ray may be required for a complete evaluation. If necessary, this CT scan can be completed within our office, often the day of your initial consultation.

During this consultation visit, we will focus on your specific needs and considerations. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
