Dental Implants

Dental implants are an attractive and long-lasting tooth replacement solution that can help restore your smile and improve your oral health. At Sikora Family Dentistry, we understand how missing teeth can affect your ability to eat, speak and smile like you used to. Regardless of the dental issues, you may be facing, our experienced team can help you find strong, stable tooth replacement options that meet your specific needs.

Single-Tooth Dental Implants

Implants look, feel, and function like real teeth. A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jawbone and acts much like a tooth root. Once your implant is fully healed and properly fused with the surrounding bone, your dentist attaches an abutment and a custom-made crown to the top. Durable and natural-looking, implants blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile and improve the overall function of your teeth. Depending on your specific needs, the implant process may only take a few months or up to a year.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures can be used to replace missing teeth on both the top and bottom arches of the mouth. Several implant posts are placed in the jaw and once they are healed, a custom-made overdenture snaps securely onto the posts. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures do not slip, shift or require messy adhesives to stay in place, which makes eating and speaking much easier.

Additional Benefits of Dental Implants

In addition to enhancing your smile, dental implants prevent bone loss, keep your other teeth from shifting, and help maintain facial structure, which can make you look younger and improve your appearance. Traditional dental bridges require tooth structure to be taken away from adjacent teeth to attach the bridge. With an implant, no other teeth are affected. A strong, stable, long-term tooth replacement solution, implants are an investment in your overall well-being and can help you avoid more costly and uncomfortable dental problems in the long run.

Caring For Dental Implants

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Practicing a good oral hygiene routine and seeing your dentist for regular dental cleanings and checkups helps keep your mouth and teeth healthy. Make sure to brush at least twice a day, floss your teeth daily, and use an antiseptic mouthwash. If you notice any damage to your implants, dental crowns, fillings, or other dental work, it’s important to see your dentist as soon as possible to have it repaired or replaced.

Are Dental Implants Right For You?

Candidates for dental implants must have healthy gums and sufficient bone to support the implant and may require bone grafting before it is placed. If you suffer from acute periodontal disease or you are undergoing cancer treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation, implants may not be the right option for you. Your dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth, take X-rays, and determine whether an implant may work for you. We’ll discuss all available tooth replacement options, answer any questions you may have, and create a comprehensive treatment plan that’s tailored to meet your individual needs.
