If you have one or more missing teeth and are looking for a permanent and durable solution, East Dental Care is pleased to offer the consultations regarding Dental Implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jawbone. Implants are usually the closest replication of natural teeth both esthetically and functionally. They can also be placed to support complete dentures.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing and speech.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months. Firstly, X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. The implant will be surgically placed into the bone under local anesthetic and allowed to heal and integrate itself into the bone for up to six months. After healing, the artificial teeth are made and securely attached to the implant.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the lifespan of your new implant.

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?

  • There is a significant improvement in the overall quality of life for patients who have implant-supported or retained dentures, as opposed to standard or conventional (free-floating) dentures.
  • Dental implants are the closest option to your natural teeth; they can look, feel, and function just like your own teeth.
  • Dental implants can improve the overall appearance of your smile.
  • Implants maintain facial structure and profile and preserve bone.
  • Dental Implants are easy to clean and do not decay.
  • Implants help to preserve adjacent natural teeth. With an implant-supported bridge, there is no need to stress or traumatize adjacent natural teeth in order to hold the bridge in place. Traditional removable partial dentures also place stress forces on the remaining natural teeth.
  • Implants help to prevent the appearance of premature aging due to bone loss.
  • Patients who wear conventional full dentures often experience difficulty eating, speaking, and smiling. Implant-supported dentures virtually eliminate embarrassing denture slippage. The implants ‘anchor’ the dentures.
  • The success rate for dental implants is very high; in the 95% range. With proper care and good dental hygiene, it is rare that implants will fail.

We know that replacing missing teeth with a high functioning restoration solution is important to you. It is our goal at East Dental Care to help you obtain dental implants that are long-lasting, looks completely natural, and function normally.
