Tooth loss due to injury, infection or disease can affect patients at any age. However, tooth loss does not have to permanent. To fully restore missing teeth, your friendly dental team offer high-quality dental implants. Implants can replace lost teeth without the need for dentures.

Depending on your needs, we may recommend subperiosteal implants, endosteal implants, and All-on-4 implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Have you lost one or more teeth due to injury, infection or disease? Your friendly, local Willowbrook dental team can help you smile again. Tooth implants are the ideal dental restoration for patients living with permanent tooth loss. Made from biocompatible titanium, implants are shaped like screws and function as artificial tooth roots. Our experienced dental team can surgically place the implants in your jawbone to provide a stable and permanent base for one or more artificial teeth. The artificial teeth, called dental crowns, are made from materials such as porcelain or ceramic for a long-lasting, natural-looking restoration. The crown is placed on the implant to fully replace the missing tooth.

Once placed, the implant will fuse with your jawbone. This will help retain the natural shape and density of your jawbone. Titanium stimulates bone growth to counteract the effects of bone loss that follows the loss of one or more teeth. Unlike removable dentures, implants are fixed restorations. You will be able to speak and chew normally, enjoying your favorite foods without the anxiety that comes with a slipping denture. You will also be able to care for your dental implants the same as your natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice and floss daily and schedule regular checkups to maintain the health of your dental implant.

What Implants Do You Offer?

At Southern Dental Associates, we offer the following implants, based on your needs and treatment goals:

  • Subperiosteal Implants: This type of implant consists of a metal framework and a series of small posts. Subperiosteal implants are placed under your gum tissue but above your jawbone.
  • Endosteal Implants: This type of implant has a screw-like post and is surgically placed directly in your jawbone.
  • All-on-4 Implants: Consisting of two implants in the front of the mouth and two implants in the back of the mouth All-on4 implants are used to anchor a denture.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Our dentist recommends tooth implants for patients who have experienced the loss of one or more permanent teeth. Implant restoration is recommended to maintain the health of the jawbone and prevent tissue loss. The best candidate for dental implants is in good overall oral and physical health. Your gums need to be healthy and free of gum disease. You will also need adequate healthy jawbone to support the implant. To find out if tooth implants are right for you, schedule a consultation with our dental care professionals.
