Single tooth implants
Full arch implants
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that connect to the jawbone, providing a long-term base for secure, stable and comfortable tooth replacement.
Dental implants are fast becoming the new standard in tooth replacement. They are a popular and effective long-term solution for people who suffer from weak teeth, missing teeth or chronic dental problems.
One of the biggest strengths of dental implants is their durability. Each implant is made from medical-grade titanium. The implant teeth are made from acrylic, porcelain and zirconia. This means you get a natural-looking tooth, without the same issues of decay and root canal therapy you get with your natural teeth. In fact, when properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
MAINTAIN A HEALTHY JAWBONE
Dental implants are a more modern tooth replacement solution than traditional dentures or bridges. They’re designed in a way that, over time, actually integrates with the jawbone. This forms a permanent anchor for your new teeth while keeping the bone itself from deteriorating. It also ensures they don’t move or slip as traditional dentures can.
ENJOY A NATURAL LOOK AND FEEL
One of the things people love most about dental implants is how real they look and feel. Because the connection with the jawbone is so strong, they actually become a part of your mouth, functioning like natural teeth. Imagine waking up and smiling in the mirror, chewing your favorite foods again, and laughing with friends, all without the daily chore of dentures. With dental implants, it will be as if you’ve had these teeth all your life.
The ability to take away the fears and anxiety of coming to the dental office is priceless.
Almost all patients in some form or fashion are fearful of the dentist!
Most of our patients that elect to undergo implant treatment with Exceptional Dental choose to be sedated for the implant placement. The types of sedation we offer are of the safest class, but still extremely effective.
– IV Sedation: We have a board-certified anesthesiologist and specially trained sedation dentists that are able to provide these services. Patients will not remember the procedure.
– Oral Sedation: Although less predictable to get you to the perfect level of sedation, oral sedation is also a great way to ease the nerves and help you relax during the procedures.
