Dental Implants Services: A Long-Lasting Solution for Missing Teeth

At Encore Dental Clinic, we understand the impact of missing teeth on oral health, self-esteem, and quality of life. Dental implants offer a long-lasting and natural-looking solution to replace missing teeth, restoring your confident smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants, also known as tooth implants or dental prostheses, are small, biocompatible titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, they fuse with the bone, providing a stable foundation for a dental crown, bridge, or denture. The end result is a comfortable, functional, and natural-looking tooth replacement.

Benefits of Tooth Implants

There are several advantages to choosing implants, such as:

  • Durability: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime, making them a long-lasting tooth replacement option.
  • Preservation of Bone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.
  • Improved Functionality: Implants restore your ability to chew, speak, and smile confidently, improving your overall quality of life.
  • Aesthetics: Implants closely mimic natural teeth, providing a natural-looking and attractive solution for missing teeth.

The Dental Implant Process

We carefully evaluate your oral health, jawbone structure, and overall medical history to determine if dental prostheses are right for you. The implant process typically involves several steps, including consultation, implant placement, the healing period, and the attachment of a custom-made restoration.

Caring for Your Dental Implants

Maintaining good oral hygiene is essential for the success of your implants. Brushing twice daily, flossing regularly, and visiting your dentist for routine checkups will help keep your implants and surrounding teeth healthy and strong.

Can You Wear Invisalign® WIth Dental Implants?

Yes, you can wear Invisalign® with a tooth implant. Invisalign® is an orthodontic treatment using clear aligners to move teeth into the desired position gradually. On the other hand, dental prostheses are artificial tooth roots placed in the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge.

Invisalign® aligners fit over teeth without interfering with dental implants or surrounding gums. Informing your dentist about implants before Invisalign® treatment is important as the plan may require adjustments.

In some cases, dental implants may need to be placed before or after Invisalign® treatment to achieve the best possible results. Your dentist or orthodontist can determine the best action based on your dental needs and goals.
