Dental Implants Can Rebuild Your Smile
When teeth are lost or extracted, normal bite function is interrupted, the jaw bone loses strength, and the smile is no longer uniform. Traditional treatments involve dentures, partials, or bridges, but dental implants provide a better way to restore your smile. Implants can give you both the form and function of natural teeth and promote healthy bone growth.
Dr. Terry LaBell’s expertise in periodontics allows him to place implants with care and precision. He and his team at LaBell Dentistry make you feel at home and comfortable with state-of-the-art techniques, equipment, and materials.
Dental Implant Restorations Rely on a Strong Jaw and Accurate Placement
The success of dental implants rests in a strong supporting jaw and the accurate placement of implant posts. Dr. LaBell has specialized training in implant placement, as well as additional methods for those who need gum and bone augmentation to ensure a successful implant.
Implant treatment begins with a preliminary examination of your jaw bone. Bone resorption (loss) is a common problem for patients with missing teeth. Without the stimulation of tooth roots, the jaw bone begins to shrink and lose volume. This prevents the bone from providing a strong anchor for a potential implant post.
Dental Implants Have a 95% Rate of Success
Dental implants are popular treatment options because of how well they function and how similar they are to natural teeth. They can be placed to support a single porcelain crown or a full set of dentures. The restorations placed on top of implant posts can be permanent or removable.
Another amazing benefit of implant posts is their ability to rejuvenate bone growth. The surgically implanted titanium post is bio-compatible and encourages bone and tissue to grow around it and attach, just like it would around a natural root. This process is called osseointegration, and it helps you maintain a strong jaw and a youthful facial structure.
