Dental Implants

Missing Teeth

Dental implant treatment can provide replacement teeth that feel and look just like your own. A dental implant made of titanium is placed into your jaw, and after a healing period, an implant crown is placed on the dental implant. Dental implants can be more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since neighboring teeth do not have to be ground down to support the replacement. In our office we place Straumann dental implants.

Dental implants are typically highly predictable procedures with initial success rates over 95%. However, bone loss can occur over time (this usually begins around 5 years but can be seen earlier or later).

Peri-implant mucositis is bleeding, swelling, and/or infection around the implant. Peri-implantitis is more advanced and includes bone loss around the implant. Implants with inflammation and bone loss are more difficult to treat than teeth with periodontal disease due to the small thread design and surface characteristics. We try to save these implants with early intervention using a combination of non-surgical and surgical treatment. However, If more than 50% of the implant threads are affected, treatment is less predictable and these implants are likely to fail. Early treatment is critical for success.
