Dental Implants

For a Natural Looking Smile

Peter Patellis meeting with patient

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

A dental implant is essentially a surgically placed substitute for a natural root. Each implant is placed into a surgically prepared socket at the precise location of the intended tooth. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. This component, which is made from titanium, can then provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.

Dental implants last two to three times as long (25+ years) as traditional tooth replacement treatments and are the best alternative to your natural teeth. They offer a permanent and secure solution for replacing one or more teeth, and are used as anchors or support for traditional forms of dentistry, such as crowns, bridges or dentures.

Multiple-Tooth Implants

Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth, and a multiple implant is the best solution. Two fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving other natural teeth intact. The multiple implant is not for everyone, and even if a patient is only missing a few teeth, it may still be preferable to perform a full mouth/arch procedure.

Single-Tooth Implants

If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be replaced using a dental implant. Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.
