Auburn Dental Implants Experts
Over 60% of adults are missing at least one tooth, and dental implants are the most optimal way to replace missing teeth. Implants are a long-term, convenient alternative to dentures, providing important support and stability for teeth and facial structure and function while improving cosmetic appearance.
For patients who have lost one or more teeth, single-tooth implants can be surgically placed into an opening made in the jawbone. Once the implant attaches to your bone, it will function as a “root.” Finally, a crown, or cap, designed to resemble a natural tooth, is affixed to the implant to fill the mouth space caused by the lost tooth or teeth.
Implant Supported Dentures
Auburn dental implants don’t affect your speech or your smile and don’t need messy adhesives to keep them in. Regular dentures often cause gradual deterioration of the bone and soft tissue because the dentures just rest on top of the gums and don’t stimulate these areas. Implant supported dentures, however, provide much-needed stimulation and help preserve facial structure.
Because they’re rooted in the jawbone, there’s no risk of accidental slipping, loose fit or clicking sounds with implant supported dentures. Embarrassing side effects are eliminated. Although implant supported dentures can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw, they are most often placed in the lower jaw where stability is most important.
IV Moderate Sedation Available
In addition to providing quality Auburn dental implants, we also offer IV moderate sedation. Moderate sedation is an altered state of consciousness during which you become disassociated with your surroundings. Memory, anxiety, and pain are greatly reduced, and you should become very relaxed and comfortable. Most people having moderate sedation “think” they have been asleep because they can’t remember anything that went on from the time the sedation was started to the time they leave the clinic. You can also count on us for periodontics and other preventative dental services.
