ARE YOU MISSING ANY TEETH?

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for your missing tooth, hence making it the ideal solution to fill those empty gaps. Your dental health will need to be assessed thoroughly as not everyone may be suitable for this procedure.

Some of our services include:

  • Extractions
  • Implants
  • Soft or hard tissue surgery
  • Ridge preservation
  • Bone grafting
  • Restorative crown lengthening

REPLACING A SINGLE TOOTH WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS

Dental implants eliminate the need to cut down the adjacent teeth and use them as anchors (dental bridge), giving you a natural-looking tooth while protecting the health of neighboring teeth.

REPLACING MULTIPLE TEETH WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS

Partial dentures rest on the gums, causing discomfort and leaving a gap in the jawbone. This contributes to further bone loss and puts surrounding teeth at risk. Dental implants fill this gap in the jawbone, stimulating bone growth and helping prevent the loss of any additional teeth.

USING DENTAL IMPLANTS TO STABLIZE DENTURES

Mandibular (lower jaw) complete dentures tend to have poor lateral stability, especially if the patient has a history of wearing lower dentures. This poor stability can cause irritation on the gum tissue and chronic bone loss can occur. At Dailey Dental we provide mandibular complete dentures that can be stabilized with implants to prevent any lateral shifting of the lower denture. This greatly improves patient’s overall satisfaction with their denture in regards to improved chewing function and comfort. This treatment does not apply for every patient that needs a lower denture and there are a few anatomical limitations. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any interest in improving your lower denture.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR DENTAL IMPLANT CONSULTATION AT DAILEY DENTAL

Each patient is unique, and not every patient is an ideal candidate for dental implants. During your consultation your dentist will evaluate the condition of your gums, available osseous support, and existing teeth to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

After your consultation, we will schedule you for the the placement of the dental implant. There is typically a certain timeframe where the implant needs heal (bone fuses with the implant surface) prior to placing a crown tooth onto the implant. After the implant heals, your dentist will seat a custom designed porcelain crown to each implant to restore your bite and smile.
