For most adults, tooth loss is no stranger. According to the American Dental Association, more than 20 million Americans are missing all of their natural teeth and over 100 million are missing between 11 and 15 teeth. At East Side Periodontics, we offer the latest dental implant services to restore teeth to a natural, healthy state.
For over 30 years, dental implants have provided patients with a permanent solution to missing teeth. A small titanium post, a dental implant is surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw bone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for the new tooth or teeth. Many patients choose dental implants over other procedures because they provide a stable, natural-looking, permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth.
The Way Nature Intended
Implant dentistry closely mimics nature’s design. By replacing tooth roots, the implants naturally encourage new bone growth and provide an anchor for the new tooth. Benefits of dental implants include:
- Stability for natural speech and comfortable chewing
- Improved facial profile and fuller lips and cheeks
- Healthy bone growth in the area where teeth are lost
- Long-lasting solution designed to last a lifetime
- Conducive to a healthy, active lifestyle
- Natural-looking, all-porcelain teeth available
Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement
Dental implants can be used in a variety of applications. One dental implant can replace a single missing tooth, or your dentist can attach a custom bridge or denture to several implants. Dr. Peiser will work closely with your general dentist to recommend a custom implant solution to meets your needs in the most conservative and cost-effective manner possible.
Implant Supported Dentures
Denture-wearers who are unsatisfied with their removable dentures are turning to dental implants as an alternative. Anchored by implants placed in the jaw bone, implant-retained dentures will allow you to eat, speak, and chew with complete confidence. In addition, implant-supported dentures contribute to a younger-looking appearance and a socially active lifestyle. Visit Dr. Peiser for a consultation to learn if implant-supported dentures or mini dental implants are an option for you.
