Dental Implants: A Lasting Solution
Dental Implants are considered the standard of care for modern tooth replacement. Why? Because they prevent the need to alter your neighboring teeth, and are extremely biocompatible. In fact, a titanium implant root encourages new bone growth within the jaws, making your smile even stronger. When cared for properly, your new prosthetic tooth can last for the rest of your life.
The types of implants available can vary, but at A Caring Dental Group, we typically provide two different types:
To replace one, several, or all of your teeth at once, we will place naturally sized prosthetic roots into your jaw. Then, we anchor a prosthesis, such as a porcelain crown, bridge, or even a denture on top of it. Due to the integrity of these artificial roots, they can support more weight than even a natural tooth.
Same Day Mini
In some cases, we can also provide same day mini dental implant treatments. If you have a missing tooth, this is a great option for fast replacement. The entire procedure is done in one visit, whereas conventional treatments can take 2 or 3 appointments over the course of 3 to 4 months.
The Best Thing to a Real Tooth
Your final treatment will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. Implants never get cavities, but it is still important to floss them regularly to keep the tissues around it healthy.
To find out if you are a candidate for the procedure, we will take an x-ray to evaluate the level and quality of the bone in your jaw. In some cases, it may be necessary to alter the placement of the implant or recommend a graft if there is not enough bone. Fortunately our mini option is ideal for areas such as these!

Our office only recommends using tooth-colored, composite tooth filling rather than traditional, silver fillings to prevent further tooth decay.
