Dental Implants

For today’s active adults, tooth replacement is virtually a necessity. Preserving your appearance, flashing a full and healthy smile, and enjoying a wide variety of foods are privileges that we all deserve to enjoy.

Choosing dental implants to replace single or multiple missing teeth is unchallenged as the high standard in dental care. Current research and clinical trials have proven that dental implants are the absolute closest imitation to your natural teeth. Dr. Pollock, Dr. Parekh, Dr. Ranschaert, and their entire staff are excited to assist you in rebuilding your smile with the best available solution.

Implants are a team effort between your oral and maxillofacial surgeon and your restorative dentist. While Dr. Pollock, Dr. Parekh or Dr. Ranschaert perform the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, bone grafting, and other related procedures, your restorative dentist completes the process with a permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

The actual implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

Implants have also been noted to help preserve your facial structure by preventing the normal bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

Aside from the clinical success of dental implants, our patients are thrilled about the social and emotional advantages. A new sense of self-confidence, the desire to smile brightly, and the freedom to chew comfortably can improve the overall quality of your life.
