For those missing one or more permanent teeth, our dentists might suggest dental implants to restore your bite and smile. At Landmark Dental Group, we use the Biocare NobelPearl™, a metal-free ceramic implant, designed for biocompatibility and a natural, healthy appearance, as well as 3D cone beam X-rays with X-Guide™ software for accuracy and precision in placement of implants.

Dental implants serve as durable and stable solutions for replacing missing teeth, whether you are replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire arch of teeth. The foundation of a dental implant is the titanium post, resembling a small screw, which is surgically positioned in the jawbone where the missing tooth was. This post functions as an artificial tooth root, anchoring the eventual dental restoration securely. A healing period follows this surgical step, permitting the bone to fuse with the biocompatible titanium post.

Once the healing process is complete, our skilled dentists will attach the implant restoration, also known as the replacement tooth, onto the implant post. Depending on your specific dental requirements, this restoration might come in the form of a dental crown, a dental bridge, or even a partial or complete denture. Each restoration is meticulously customized to ensure a comfortable fit that blends seamlessly with your natural smile.

Benefits of dental implants include:

  • Restoration of Dental Health: Dental implants bring back not only the aesthetics of your smile but also its functionality, promoting oral health.
  • Natural Feel and Appearance: The implant-restoration combination closely mimics the sensation and appearance of natural teeth, providing you with a seamless experience.
  • Longevity: Designed for durability, dental implants have the potential to endure a lifetime, surpassing the longevity of traditional dentures or bridges.
  • Economical Over Time: While even an implant-supported denture can be an option, the strategic placement of a few implants ensures a long-term, reliable solution.
  • Bone Health: Implants stimulate the jawbone, maintaining its strength and minimizing the need for additional procedures like bone grafting.
  • Versatile Solutions: Whether it’s a single tooth or multiple teeth, various restoration options are available to match your specific needs.
  • Proven Success: Dental implants boast an impressive track record of successful outcomes, whether used for one tooth or several.

To make the most of your dental implant investment, adopting a diligent oral care routine is crucial. Continue your regular brushing and flossing regimen, and don’t skip those routine dental visits. When properly cared for, implants can last a lifetime.
