Dental Implants

Video: Dental Implant Consultation

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants is a dental device using a titanium post that is designed to replace missing teeth. Dr. Dennison surgically places the post directly into the jawbone in place of the missing tooth, creating a strong base for a dental crown. This is a permanent solution for replacing one, multiple, or even all of your missing teeth.

At University Periodontal Associates, we are thrilled to offer an additional restorative procedure along with crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental Implants can work instead of or incongruence with these other dental devices. We find that dental implants provide teeth that will look and feel just as your own natural teeth. Because your implant fuses to your jawbone, this is a strong and permanent procedure.

Video: Dental Implant History

How does the Implant fuse to my bone?

Dental Implants are created using titanium, which is a biocompatible metal. This is the same type of metal that is frequently used by surgeons in making bone repairs all over the body. Titanium has been found to work well with our living tissue. Through a process called osseointegration, the living tissue will fuse around the metal, giving you a secure fit. Integration also allows your dental implant feel more natural, it will never feel loose or unstable in your mouth. We do require that patients have adequate bone to support the implant, but this can be achieved using bone grafting.

Implant Supported Dentures

Why should I get a Dental Implant?

Dental Implants is a rapidly increasing dental procedure. More and more patients are finding that they can have healthier teeth longer, improving their look and function. At University Periodontal Associates, Dr. Dennison recommends Implants:

•  to replace a single or multiple missing teeth.
•  to help maintain healthy bone, bone atrophies where teeth are missing.
•  to provide support for overdentures.
•  to help maintain your facial shape after losing teeth.

Can I have multiple teeth replaced with Implants?

Yes! Your Implant Dentist, Dr. Dennison is able to replace both individual and multiple missing teeth. In fact, he can replace all of your teeth in a single arch using four dental implants, securing a denture firmly and permanently in place. We are happy to discuss multiple teeth implants with you.
