Replace Any Number of Missing Teeth
Tooth loss is a widespread problem affecting the lives of many people. In fact, nearly 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. This leaves patients like you searching for a viable solution for lasting tooth replacement. Dental implants are the modern-day, preferred option for replacing missing teeth, in many cases. Implants offer flexibility, versatility and the ability to replace any number of teeth. They also offer a more natural, healthier alternative to traditional dentures and bridges.
High Quality Implant Restorations, From Crowns to Full-Arch Dentures
Dr. Robert Janisse restores implants with high quality, natural-looking restorations. Our team works closely with oral surgery and periodontal specialists who place the implant posts, or “root” portions of the tooth replacement, within your jawbone. We can refer you to one of our trusted colleagues for this service, or restore your existing implant posts. The restoration process is simple and convenient, whether you need a single crown or implant supported denture. Our advanced impression techniques ensure a custom, precise fit for beautiful, natural-looking implant restorations!
Implants Afford the Greatest Benefits After Tooth Loss
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Preserve jawbone health
- Look, act and feel like real teeth
- Extremely stable, secure bite
- Allow enjoyment of favorite foods
- Impervious to decay
- Do not need other teeth for support
Implants are ideal for many types of dental situations. But at times, we may need to perform preparatory procedures like bone grafting to ensure sound support for your investment. Dr. Janisse offers bone grafting for cases of moderate to advanced bone loss. He is also certified in sedation to calm any dental fear or anxiety you may have.
Your Dental Implant Options
Dental implants blend seamlessly into the smile to replace missing teeth with screw-like implants that adhere with the jaw bone. As you bite and chew with the attached dental crown, the implant provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root, which keeps your bone levels healthy and protects the integrity of your smile.
Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.
Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.
Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.
