Dental Implants

Damaging or losing a single tooth can have traumatic impact on your quality of life. Not having a full set of teeth can negatively impact your general health, appearance, and self-confidence while a full set of teeth improves your overall functionality, and let’s you enjoy your food. When even a single tooth is missing, it inhibits your body’s natural process of chewing, and your mandible begins to lose bone and your gums may shrink. Repairing your missing tooth is vital, so neighboring teeth do not begin to shift into the void left behind. Dental implants are a modern solution that will help you smile, eat and socialize with confidence and without discomfort. Using a dental implant to replace the tooth’s root keeps healthy adjacent teeth untouched and provides the stability you need to carry on with your daily routine. A missing tooth can be replaced by a crown which is connected to a dental implant.

Advantages of dental implants include:

  • Healthy and natural-looking smile
  • Restored functionality for eating and speaking
  • Support themselves, so adjacent teeth are left untouched
  • Stable and comfortable fit
  • Chance of immediate functionality from time of dental implant surgery
  • Durable and easy to maintain

Dental implants typically last several years, and with the right care, up to a lifetime. It requires only your normal effort to keep the area clean and there is very low risk of tooth decay and fracture. There may be a higher initial cost of treatment but lower maintenance costs over time.

Implant Retained Dentures

We use implants to secure your dentures in replacement of denture adhesives which is strong and secure. At Slipacoff Dental Center we have the right solution for you:

Removable implant overdentures – This cost-effective option provides stability where new teeth are attached to two or more dental implants. This will not affect your chew and taste with variety of food. Your teeth can be removed for cleaning and denture adhesives is no longer needed.

Removable overdentures on an implant bar – For a more secure fit, a dental implant bar is secured to your jaw bone with two or more implants, which provides a stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be removed for cleaning and denture adhesives is no longer needed.

Fixed implant supported bridges –  A more durable option with natural-looking replacement teeth that is secured on four or more dental implants. This solution stimulates bone maintenance, restores chewing function, and maintains taste sensation.
