What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best form of permanent tooth replacement.

At Impeccable Smiles, we want to help you learn more about dental implants so you can feel confident when choosing the best tooth replacement for you. Let’s start by going over what dental implants are.

Dental implants are a popular form of root replacement for people missing teeth. They provide a seat for a permanent crown (aka replacement tooth) and bond to your bone so they provide stable support for replacement teeth.

Impeccable Smiles uses materials and procedures for dental implants that achieve several important things:

  • A strong bond between the implant means there’s no slippage so you can eat what you want and speak with confidence.
  • The whole procedure is completed in our office, all in one place.
  • Our dental implants offer an effective long-term solution for tooth replacement.

What Types of Dental Implants Do You Offer?

We offer several types of dental implant procedures at Impeccable Smiles. Let’s find out which one is right for you.

Single tooth replacement

Lose a tooth from an accident or a dental condition? This is the procedure for you. There are three components to this procedure.

  • The implant bonds to the bone and replaces the root
  • The abutment is a connector that holds your new tooth
  • The crown replaces your tooth and attaches to the abutment

Implant bridges

Missing three or more teeth? This is the option for you

Implants can be placed to support a bridge
The bridge is cemented in place so it can’t be removed
Implant supported dentures
If you need a full arch replacement and want an affordable option, this is the right procedure for you.

2-4 lower and 4-6 upper implants are placed to anchor a removable denture
Secure enough to eat the foods you want
Snaps in and out for easy cleaning
