Dental implants are modern, efficient and the most sensible alternative to natural teeth . A dental implant is a titanium post made to act as a tooth root that is placed in the jaw bone. Dental Implants serve a number of different purposes such as:

  • Supporting and stabilizing dentures
  • Adding stability and support to dental bridges
  • For partial or full-mouth teeth replacement.

  • Single tooth dental implant
  • Implant supported bridges (for multiple missing teeth)
  • Implant supported, removable dentures
  • Restore your smile with a screw retained bridge or denture to replace a full set of teeth
Example Of Dental Implant

Single Tooth Implant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Implant Supported Bridge

Implant-supported bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but are supported by implants rather than the patient’s adjacent teeth. Implant-supported bridges are used when the patient is missing three or more teeth in a row.

Implant-supported bridges are stronger, more durable, and can withstand greater bite pressure than traditional bridges.

Example Of Dental Implant

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are attached securely to dental implants for added comfort and stability. We offer both removable implant-supported dentures that you can easily take out for cleaning, and fixed implant-supported dentures that are even more stable and can only be removed by Dr. Warise.

Screw Retained Bridge Or Denture

Dr. Warise takes advantage of available bone by placing as few as four implants (per arch) in strategic locations and angles. In some cases, he recommends six to eight implants per arch for additional stability.

He can extract irreversibly damaged teeth, surgically place dental implant posts and provide you with functioning and natural-looking teeth in one day. Although remarkably expeditious, the procedure provides an effective, efficient and long-lasting solution for missing teeth.

Bone grafting and sinus lifts

Bone Grafting

If there is not enough bone to support a dental implant, Dr. Tim Warise will perform a bone graft prior to placing the implant. This may be done at the time of any extractions.

Example of Bone Graft

Sinus Lift

A sinus lift, or sinus augmentation procedure uses extra bone to build-up or support the sinus wall needed to support a dental implant. It is needed when the floor or wall of the sinus is too close to an area where dental implants are to be placed.

 

Benefits and Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental Implants can last a lifetime

Dental implants are made of durable titanium, a non-corrosive, body-friendly, long-lasting metal. Implants are subject to the same periodontic issues as natural teeth, however, and require good oral care (daily brushing and flossing) and regular professional cleanings.

 

Dental Implants Behave Like Natural Teeth

Once an implant is placed, most patients can’t tell the difference between their natural teeth and the implant tooth. Not only do the implants blend-in with their natural teeth, they can eat with full chewing power, and can brush and floss normally, as well.

 

Dental Implants Prevent Bone Loss

Bone in the jaw deteriorates where there is no tooth. This is because the bone requires the pressure and stimulation of chewing to maintain its density. Implants act as natural teeth and provide that necessary stimulation.

 

Dental Implants Keep Adjacent Teeth Stable

The gap caused by a missing tooth can destabilize adjacent teeth, causing them to shift towards the gap. This pulls your teeth out of position and can affect your bite and your ability to chew. Dental implants fill in the gap left by a missing tooth and prevent this from occurring.
