Your Best Smile Can Begin with Advanced Dental Implants
Tooth loss affects the lives of millions of adults each year. The loss of natural teeth impacts how you eat, speak and feel about yourself, among other factors. Bone loss occurs when teeth remain unreplaced, changing the shape of your face and altering oral function. Today’s modern solutions offer a permanent, life-changing answer to missing teeth. Dental implants are preferred over traditional bridges and dentures, in most cases. From a single tooth to a full arch, implants replace any number of teeth for the chance to experience your best smile yet!
An estimated 69 percent of U.S. adults ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one tooth.
25 percent of older adults (over 74 years-old) have experienced complete tooth loss.
Nearly 2.3 million single dental implants are restored with crowns each year.
Dental Implants Afford the Closest Replica of Natural Teeth
A dental implant is the only option that replaces a tooth in its entirety. A biocompatible titanium post acts as the root, while a natural-looking restoration replaces the crown (or chewing) portion of your tooth. Dr. Austin Wang uses innovative technology like 3D CT scans and guided implant surgery to ensure precision planning and placement of implant posts. With modern techniques and relaxing sedation options, you can experience a comfortable procedure, reduced recovery time and a life-changing implant experience. We work closely with general dentists for the lasting solutions patients need. Once your implant posts are ready, your referring dentist will complete the process by placing natural, lifelike restorations.
We offer implant options to meet every need:
- Single implants
- Multiple implants
- Implant supported dentures
- All-on-4® dental implants
- Straumann® ceramic implants (metal-free)
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 dental 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.
Experience the Lasting Benefits of Implants
Dental implants are highly regarded as the best long-term solution for tooth loss. Implants are permanent, unlike traditional methods which require replacement every five to 10 years. They are also the only option that preserves bone and prevents bone loss. With implants, you can eat your favorite foods, enjoy stable biting and chewing, and smile with confidence once again. As a Board Certified Periodontist, Dr. Wang has the advanced expertise necessary to ensure the best results for your oral health.
Certain Factors May Affect Total Implant Cost
The total cost of implants varies among patients. Certain factors impact cost, including bone health, number of teeth to replace and the need for other procedures, such as extractions. However, choosing implants affords a wealth of lifetime benefits. Implants offer long-term value for your oral health, confidence and quality of life. Dr. Wang and our team are proud to help you build the smile of your dreams by overcoming tooth loss with implants.
