Woman smiling on the couchIf you’re missing teeth or need to have a tooth removed, The Smile Factory team will discuss all suitable replacement options with you. Dental implants are viewed as the gold standard when it comes to tooth restoration; they can improve your appearance, the function of your teeth and are an effective long-term solution.

Dental implants are the closest thing to having natural teeth again. With good home care and ongoing maintenance, you can typically expect your new teeth to last a lifetime.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a small, titanium post inserted into your jawbone. Once the area heals, a replacement tooth can be put into position. It can restore a single tooth, multiple teeth or support a bridge or denture. The overall treatment time frame for dental implant therapy usually ranges between 3-6 months, depending on the type of implants you’re getting.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Most of our implant patients are surprised to learn how easy the process is to get implants. It’s typically much more comfortable than they expect and caring for them is nearly identical to having natural teeth.
There are numerous advantages associated with dental implants. They

  • Enhance your overall appearance
  • Allow you to speak easier
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Are strong and stable
  • Allow you to eat what you want

All-on-4 implants allow us to efficiently and safely replace all of your upper or lower teeth at one time. Only four implants are usually required per arch, as they are strong enough to securely anchor a hybrid, full-arch prosthesis.

Compared to dentures, All-on-4 implants are fixed in place so they won’t move throughout the day. Their integrity provides freedom to eat whatever you like. Plus, they’re more attractive and comfortable to wear than a full acrylic denture.

Do you have a single tooth that needs to be replaced? Individual implants can safely sit alongside your natural teeth to restore your smile. Most of our single-unit implant clients are younger adults who lost a tooth because of previous injuries or accidents.

A single-unit implant is a healthier, non-invasive alternative to fixed bridges, which alter the structure of their supporting teeth.

Who Is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

As long as your jaw has stopped growing, you’re old enough for a dental implant. This treatment is particularly suited to the senior population. You must be in a reasonable state of general and dental health, which we’ll discuss with you at your initial consultation.
