Regardless of the reasons for tooth loss, once it occurs, it’s important to replace your teeth as soon as possible. For many patients, the options for tooth replacement can be overwhelming. If you are looking for a permanent tooth replacement that looks, feels and functions just like your natural teeth, ask us about our high-quality dental implants.
Dental implants are screw-like titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw bone where the root of a missing tooth used to be located. Over a period of approximately 3-4 months, the implant heals through a process called “osseointegration” in which the jaw bone directly interfaces with the implant providing a strong long-term physical connection. The purpose of a dental implant is to replace the missing root and support a dental crown, bridge, denture or full-arch hybrid prosthesis, thereby replacing a missing tooth or teeth.
It is important to understand that without dental implants, a missing or removed tooth will cause the surrounding bone to shrink away as the bone is no longer required. If multiple teeth are lost and not replaced, more bone is lost, resulting in difficulty chewing, which is essential for maintaining optimal health, impaired speech as well as premature aging./p>
If you are missing one tooth, many or all of your teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dr. Howell and the team at Green Leaf Dentistry will perform a thorough evaluation and inform you of your options. Call us today to schedule your appointment!
We are proud to offer this revolutionary treatment. Our dentist works closely with highly qualified local oral surgeons to help our patients receive the benefits of Teeth-in-a-Day. We do this to ensure the best possible results for healthy, long-lasting smiles.
With Teeth-in-a-Day, you can receive full-mouth tooth replacement and receive temporary teeth on the day of surgery! The temporary prosthesis will stay in place until your gums heal and the bone has fused around the implants. Once this process is complete, a stronger, permanent set of teeth will be placed.
Each case is unique, and costs will vary depending on your specific needs. We are committed to finding the perfect treatment for your tooth loss at a fair price. We are in-network with most major dental insurance plans, and we accept CareCredit and offer Green Leaf Club, an in-house payment plan for qualifying patients.
