Implants

IMPLANTS ARE THE BEST SOLUTION FOR MISSING TEETH. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to restore your ability to smile, speak, and eat with comfort and confidence then dental implants are right for you. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Perhaps your dentures don't fit as securely or comfortably as they once did. If any of these situations keep you from feeling good about yourself and your smile, dental implants may be a solution for you.

Implants can make you feel younger, attractive, and confident. They are the smarter and healthier choice.

Implants can provide you with:

1. Self-Esteem Look and feel younger. Recover your natural smile.
2. Confidence Talk and laugh with confidence.
3. Comfort Eat what you want comfortably.
4. Aesthetic Looks and feels like natural teeth.
5. Function Restorations are secured and held firmly in place and improve chewing ability.
6. Health Implants allow you to eat better foods to sustain a healthier lifestyle.
7. Speech is improved.
8. Longevity implants can last a lifetime.
9. Conservative Does not require drilling or modification of healthy surrounding teeth.
10. Preservation Implants helps maintain jawbone volume.
With missing teeth bone begins to shrink and deteriorate over time, which can change your facial structure.

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial substitutes for natural tooth roots. They are small threaded Titanium cylinders that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. The implant is allowed to heal for a period of months after which replacement teeth are attached.

Implant Reconstructive Options:

1. The Single Tooth Restoration
The perfect solution for an unsightly space in your mouth. Without the need to alter adjacent natural teeth, an implant
is placed and a porcelain crown is fitted over a titanium post.

2. The Multiple Tooth Restoration
If your are missing multiple teeth, implants can support a Fixed bridge eliminating the need for a removable partial denture that can shift, come loose, or cause gum irritation.

3. The Implant Supported Denture
If you are missing all of your teeth and currently use a full denture and suffer from the following:

  • Unable to eat what you want
  • Dentures that chatter, fit poorly, shift, or wander
  • Bad taste from messy denture adhesive
  • Gum irritation or mouth pain
  • Fear of smiling
Then an implant supported bridge or implant supported denture is the right choice for you. After a short healing period a precision attachment is placed over the implant, which allows your denture to snap tight and securely. Dentures are now more secure and comfortable by eliminating slipping and movement, there's no pain, no embarrassment, no adhesives, and no worries. You'll be able to laugh and speak with confidence, and enjoy your favorite foods with ease.

Implants replace the natural tooth root and provide structural support. Chewing and speech are restored while bone structure is preserved.

Implants can improve your life?

Dr. Kalogiannis can determine if you are a good candidate for implant reconstruction after a comprehensive examination. He will discuss your options and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
