A Permanent Solution For Your Dental Needs

For those missing one or more teeth, or in need of replacement, dental implants can be an easy and simple solution for you. These synthetic implants are installed directly into your jawbone allowing them to act just like your natural teeth. For some, dental implants may be a more viable option than dentures and are generally much more comfortable.

  • Speak clearly and confidently with dental implants. Unlike dentures which can slip and cause you to mumble and slur, dental implants stay in place so you can communicate effectively.
  • When embedded in your jawbone, dental implants offer more comfort than dentures. Over time, your dental implants will fuse with your other teeth, offering a permanent solution.
  • Enjoy your favorite meals with dental implants. Unlike dentures, implants do not shift in your mouth making it easy to chew your favorite foods.
  • These implants can help you maintain your oral health, as there’s no need to reduce nearby teeth to place a dental implant.
  • Dental implants stay in place and look like your natural teeth. There’s no need to hide your smile or worry about your dentures falling out. You’ll enjoy improved self-esteem as a result!

At M Dental, we understand that nothing can quite replace your teeth, but dental implants can come very close. By using a screw-like structure to act like a tooth root, the materials naturally bond to your bone, allowing your implants to look, feel and act like normal teeth. In addition, you can have one dental implant installed instead of having to mess with using the adjacent teeth to construct a bridge. There are several reasons why getting implants may improve your lifestyle and your smile:

  • Help you chew
  • Help you speak
  • Decrease risk of tooth decay
  • Improve your bite and lessen stress on the jaw
  • Help your face appear fuller

We never believe in a one-size-fits-all dental care. Our dental professionals take the time to understand each patient, your needs and expectations, so that we can tailor make a dental implant plan that will give you your best looking smile.

Implant Supported Dentures over Conventional Dentures

In the long term, implants can be more aesthetic and easier to maintain over conventional dentures.  Conventional dentures can lead to bone loss which then can lead to recession of the jawbone and a collapsed, unattractive smile. Certain foods can be difficult to eat with a conventional denture. Whereas a dental implant supported denture or a bridge can be more comfortable and stable and will help stabilize the jawbone and keep it from bone loss.

Am I a Good Candidate?

While dental implants provide a new set of teeth to those that undergo the procedure, it may not be right for everyone. Typically, we will work with you on an individual basis to learn if you are a good candidate, which may include assessing if you:

  • Have good health. Chronic diseases like leukemia or diabetes may inhibit healing from the procedure.
  • Have a healthy jaw. The most important part of having a quality implant is making sure that your jaw bone will take to the changes. If your jaw doesn’t have enough bone that doesn’t preclude you from the procedure. We would simply have to perform additional procedures may have to take place first.
  • Avoid tobacco. Smoking may relate to a higher instance of implant failures.

What to Know for After the Surgery

It’s important to keep in mind that dental implants are a surgery and recovery time is needed. You may experience swelling and tenderness, and your dentist may recommend pain medication and soft foods.

In order to provide you with the best possible results, we may need to wait for the bone to combine with the implant (a process called osseointegration) before attaching your new teeth to the implant.
