Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and once the surrounding bone has healed, serve as an anchor for replacement teeth.
There are several advantages to choosing implants over more traditional methods of tooth replacement, such as dentures and bridges. First, implants are typically more comfortable than other methods. They do not have to be removed for cleaning and they do not slip or shift in the mouth. Second, they do not affect other teeth, as bridges do, and they are permanent. Third, the titanium posts fuse with the bone, providing a solid foundation for the replacement tooth.
There are many reasons that patients need implants. Sometimes it is due to tooth loss. Tooth decay is a common problem that can be treated with a root canal. Cracks and chips are common when patients bite down on ice or hard food. Infection, misalignment, or bone loss can also damage the jawbone, causing it to weaken and recede. This creates increased instability in the jaw and can lead to further tooth loss.
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history. During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by either Dr. Shane Sykes or by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon referred by our practice. Your questions and concerns are important to us and our team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

Implants can be placed just about anywhere in the mouth. They can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Implants can support a single replacement tooth, several replacement teeth, or a full upper or lower set of replacement teeth. Dental implants can even be used to support a removable denture.
Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. Implants allow patients to comfortably eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Dental implants can also help maintain the jawbone, preventing bone loss.
