Is something missing from your smile? Implants are the solution!
The preferred solution for missing teeth!
Dental implants are the modern-day answer for one or more missing teeth. Implants act as the replacement root for a missing tooth. They are secured to the jawbone and are not visible after they’ve been placed. Once placed they become permanently fused to the bone.
No other dental treatment for missing teeth will look, feel, or function more like your own natural teeth. You can eat, laugh, and talk with perfect confidence again!
A dental implant consists of three parts:
Here are just a few of the reasons why our patients are choosing dental implants.
Some foods can be hard to chew when you don't have a full set of teeth to do the job. Dental implants let you eat the foods you love again!
You need your teeth to be able to speak clearly. Dental implants gives you the confidence to speak up at work or social occasions.
Some treatments for missing teeth can require removing healthy enamel from neighboring teeth. Implants won't negatively affect nearby teeth.
Porcelain crowns are custom-crafted to look like real teeth. Drs. Horn and Loween will craft a beautiful restoration that will blend in naturally with your smile.
Missing teeth often lead to bone deterioration which can cause a sunken, aged look around the mouth and cheeks. Implants retain bone tissue, keeping you looking younger!
Implants are a long-lasting solution for missing teeth. They are constructed out of durable materials that, if maintained properly, can last a lifetime.
At Serene Oaks Dental our priority is to provide a unique dental experience that goes above and beyond what our patients expect.
Our ongoing training and commitment to learning cannot be compared to most other clinicians. We make it our personal responsibility to stay on the cutting edge of dental technology and training.
Some of the cutting-edge technology we use to make your dental implant treatment faster and better include:
Cone beam dental computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not enough.
Our dentists use this technology to create three-dimensional (3-D), digital images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone. It provides a more comprehensive and dimensionally accurate examination.
Come beam radiography provides detailed images that allow:
One of the most common uses for CBCT is for evaluating potential implant candidates, which saves them a trip to a medical facility for a more expensive and higher radiation dose CT scan.
It can also be used to perform a virtual implant before treatment to ensure a smooth, accurate, and efficient procedure the actual day of the implant treatment.
‘‘Our patient broke her front tooth beyond repair, and it had to be extracted. She was devastated and horrified that she was not going to have a beautiful smile anymore. We were able to place an implant and created a beautiful restoration, and nobody could detect which front tooth it was.
