Dental implants are an exceptional treatment method designed for the modern dental patient. Unlike traditional forms of tooth replacements, implants allow teeth to be replaced in almost any area of the mouth, from one missing tooth to an entire mouth of missing teeth!
Single implant crowns are used to replace individual missing teeth, regardless of where the missing tooth is located. They can be placed in the front or back of the mouth as long as bone levels are healthy. Chances are you won’t even be able to tell the difference in your implant and the rest of your smile, because it is designed to match your other teeth so closely.
3 or 4 teeth in a row can easily be replaced with an implant supported dental bridge. Traditional bridges must be placed on real teeth that are adjacent to the open space as well as healthy enough to support a prosthesis; but an implant bridge can be placed in an area even if there are no other teeth present. The strength alone of 2 supporting implants can bear the force of several teeth with a fixed bridge.
As few as 4 implants can support a full mouth denture. Implant dentures are smaller than conventional dentures, allowing our patients to free up more space in their mouth so that they can speak easily and enjoy their meals. You’ll never have to worry about an ill-fitting denture that rubs or comes loose, because implant supported dentures stay in place permanently!
Amazingly, implants are considered to be just as strong as natural teeth! The titanium roots encourage new bone growth to occur around them, holding them firmly in place and allowing them to bear even more weight than other teeth.
Utilizing advanced computer guidance, Dr. Andler is able to place dental implants in a much shorter period of time (under an hour). This technique is far less invasive and allows faster healing, less post operative discomfort, and ideal placement of the implant.
