Dental Implants

Patients who are missing teeth may want to consider revitalizing their smiles with dental implants. During this procedure, a dental implant dentist will insert a small titanium screw into the jawbone. Before long, the bone will integrate around the implant, securing it in place. The surgeon will then affix a prosthetic tooth to the implant. This process is safe and effective, and provides patients with comfortable, natural-looking teeth.

In addition to dental implants, Espire Dental offers a variety of other procedures to help you achieve your best and brightest smile. These include orthodontic tooth uncovery, which facilitates an unerupted tooth’s emergence, and ridge augmentation, which preserves existing bone during an extraction. All these procedures (and more) are performed by oral surgeons onsite.

How Do Implants Work?

Dental implants are small titanium screws that are inserted into the jaw bone and act as anchors. After a period of healing, the native bone will integrate around the implant. This is known as osseointegration. Once the implant becomes integrated, a replacement tooth is then secured onto the implant.

Natural Look & Feel

Prosthetic teeth placed onto implants look and feel like natural teeth while offering comfort, security, and confidence.

Safe & Effective

Dental implants are a standard part of advanced dentistry and are used to replace missing teeth. They are a safe and aesthetic alternative to traditional crown and bridgework with success rates above 95%.

Sinus Augmentation

Placing dental implants in the back of the upper jaw has limitations. One of these limitations is the proximity of the maxillary sinus to the jaw bone. When teeth are lost in this region, the bone will resorb or shrink over time. Consequently, the sinus expands to occupy the empty space that was previously filled with bone. This often results in insufficient bone to securely place the dental implant. In order to create space, the sinus must first be lifted to place additional bone for implant stability.

Tissue Grafting

Tissue grafting uses a series of procedures to restore or prevent further deterioration of a receding gum line. Recession can be noticed when the root surfaces of a tooth become exposed. This can lead to uneven gum lines, sensitivity of the teeth, or an unaesthetic smile. There are several different types of tissue grafting procedures along with different surgical techniques. Our doctors are familiar and trained to choose the procedure and technique that is right for you.

Ridge Augmentation

When a tooth is required to be extracted, we recommend a ridge preservations procedure to temporarily stabilize and preserve the existing bone. If this procedure is not performed at the time the tooth is removed, the bone can resorb creating insufficient space for a dental implant. This can result in more expensive, invasive, time consuming, and uncomfortable procedures in the future.

Orthodontic Tooth Uncovery

In some cases tooth eruption can be delayed or incomplete which may change the arch form. When this occurs the tooth can be uncovered to facilitate its eruption into the arch.

Computer Guided Surgery

Computer guided surgery utilizes 3D imaging to plan the placement of dental implants according to the end result. By visualizing the patient’s anatomy on a three dimensional level prior to the surgery we can plan and envision the final outcome before ever starting. This helps take the guess work out of positioning single or multiple implants during surgery. In most cases a tooth can also be made to replace the missing space that day. If you’re missing a tooth or teeth, implants are a great option to get back your beautiful smile. They have the appearance and structural integrity of natural teeth. By using your jaw bone for support, they avoid the need to attach to your other healthy teeth, which can weaken them.

Frenectomy

A frenum is a small fold of tissue that connects mobile tissue to a stationary point. There are two main locations for frenula. One is underneath the tongue called the lingual frenum and the other is on underneath the lips called the labial frenula. A strong lingual frenum can impede the movement of the tongue and impair speech. A strong labial frenum can interfere with orthodontic movement or other problems associated the gums.
