You don’t have to be ashamed of a missing tooth. At the office of Dr. Burke and Dr. Williams, we use the best Anchorage dental implant fabrication available to build you a replacement. Our dental implants are better than the best– they’re yours!
What is a dental implant?
We only get one set of adult teeth. Unfortunately, adult life means a whole bunch of opportunities to damage–and even lose–the only teeth we’ll ever have. That’s why Anchorage Dental Solutions made it our business to provide cutting-edge solutions to replace lost and damaged teeth.
Dental implants are posts that are placed into the jaw bone. Since they are made of pure, medical grade titanium, your bone actually grows into the surface of the implant. This process is called ‘osseointegration.’ Whereas dental crowns and fillings replace your tooth, you can think of implants as a replacement of the root that was lost when your tooth was extracted. Dental implants are one of the most significant, life-changing developments in modern dentistry. Once an implant is healed and secured to your bone, special connectors are used to attach a tooth, bridge, or denture to the implant. This allows our patients to return back to near normal function and appearance. In other words, you have teeth again!
Who should get a dental implant?
If you’re self-conscious about damaged or missing teeth, you should consider dental implants. As opposed to tooth-supported bridges, the impact to adjacent teeth is minimal, which means that dental implants are a great solution for difficult fits. And unlike other methods of tooth replacement, day-to-day care for your implant is as simple as brushing and flossing regularly!
Of course, as with all procedures, it’s important to consider the necessary requirements of dental implants. Successful dental implants rely on healthy bone, and the ability to integrate the implant with the healing tissue. If you have any conditions that may impede healing or weaken your bone structure, or take any medication that may impact your recovery, talk to your dentist before receiving dental implants.
What are my options for dental implants?
If you’re tired of hiding your smile, don’t worry– you have options! Dental implants are an excellent solution to a number of difficult problems. Due to the nature of the procedure, a dental implant may be the best option to suit an otherwise difficult replacement. And as dental implants are made from biocompatible titanium, your dental implant should be easy to care for!
The procedure itself is fairly straightforward and is typically done with a local anesthetic. Anchorage Dental Solutions provides a range of techniques and options for your comfort and safety. As always, it’s important to discuss your options with our dentists before making a decision. If you’re looking for an alternative to full dentures, partial dentures, or dental bridges, you may want to consider dental implants.
When you lose a tooth, it can feel like the end of the world. Having that hole in your smile can seem impossible to fix. But Dr. Williams and Dr. Burke would like you to know that there are options available! Anchorage dental implants have never been easier to find, thanks to Anchorage Dental Solutions. If it sounds like dental implants are the right solution for you, contact our office for a consultation.
