Dental Implants – While there are a variety of treatment options available to our patients to replace missing and hopeless teeth, dental implants are the most permanent and life-like solution. Dental implants are fabricated from surgical grade titanium, the same type of titanium used for other medical devices such as hip and knee replacements. The properties of titanium induce human bone to fuse with the implant, anchoring it to the bone, just like your natural teeth are rooted in your jawbone. After an initial healing phase, a permanent, custom-made crown is fitted to the implant body. Once finalized, your dental implant will be virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth in both form and function.

Dental implants also strengthen the quality of your jawbone and maintain the alignment of neighboring teeth. Missing teeth, if not replaced quickly, are no longer stimulating the jawbone during chewing and function, causing the bone levels to shrink, making replacement options more difficult. Neighboring teeth will also begin to shift, tilting into the space, compromising their integrity. It is important to replace missing teeth to avoid future tooth loss.
At Brookwood Dentistry, we use 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) to map out both dental arches in order to guide our implant placement to areas of greatest bone volume, while also emerging from the gum tissue at natural angles to increase the longevity, functionality and beauty of the final tooth in your smile. Our 3D printed surgical guides ensure precision, predictable outcomes, and improve the healing process.
YOU SHOULD NEVER GET AN IMPLANT PLACED WITHOUT 3D X-RAYS!
If you wear complete or partial dentures, dental implants can also be used as anchoring attachments to increase both retention and comfort. If you are interested in replacing missing teeth or improving the fit and function of your dentures with dental implants, call and schedule an appointment to learn how it can transform your smile.
