A dental implant is a post made from sturdy titanium that is surgically placed into the jawbone to act as the tooth’s root, anchoring your chosen prosthetic. Not only do dental implants provide patients with a beautiful and natural-looking solution to their missing teeth, but they also minimize bone loss and preserve the existing teeth.
A good candidate for dental implants is a patient who has enough bone in their jaw and healthy enough gums to support the implant. We will refer your case to a surgeon for bone grafting, or a periodontist for gum care to correct these issues before completing treatment. You should also be in good overall health before undergoing this procedure.
Dr. Manheimer and his staff offer a variety of restorations that securely attach to implant posts. Depending on the number of teeth needing to be replaced, you are matched with a restoration to improve function after having implants placed. For full teeth replacement, snap-on dentures provide a natural-looking and comfortable solution. Messy adhesives or uncomfortable metal fixtures that hook around teeth are not required. For those missing just one or a couple of teeth, implant supported crowns and bridges provide you with an aesthetically appealing and comfortable smile.
We use two of the most trusted brands in implant manufacturing for those in need of tooth replacement. Nobel Biocare is one of the pioneers in dental implants, creating quality titanium posts for over 50 years. We also carry the Straumann implant as an option, one of the largest implant manufacturing companies in the world.
