Dental implants replace missing teeth without the complications associated with traditional bridgework and dentures. For people in good general oral health, dental implants deliver superior results, including:
Improved appearance and confidence. Implants look and feel natural, allowing patients to smile and speak without hesitation.
Improved speech. Just as natural teeth, dental implants do not interfere with the movement of the tongue, unlike dentures, which can slip within the mouth causing slurred speech.
Improved comfort. Implants allow patients to chew and swallow without any discomfort, free from the irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures and the worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
Improved oral health. Unlike bridgework, implants do not sacrifice the health of neighboring teeth to achieve adequate support. Individual implants also make it easier to floss, improving oral hygiene.
Durability. With proper placement and diligent maintenance by the patient, implants can last a lifetime.
Dr. Termechi provides the full range of dental implant services including:
Implants – Replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Mini Implants – Also called Overdentures, mini-implants stabilize dentures and offer improved comfort at a lower cost compared to a full implant.
Bone Augmentation – We use a variety of procedures, including bone grafting, to build bone mass to achieve adequate support for the implant.
Sinus Lift Procedure – Also known as sinus augmentation, this procedure increases the amount of bone in the upper jaw bone.
Immediate Loading – With immediate loading, patients can restore tooth function in a single office visit. Despite some restrictions, the approach avoids significant quality-of-life disruptions following the loss of aesthetically and functionally important teeth.
Non-Implant Procedures – In addition to non-implant procedures such as extractions and root canals, Dr. Termechi provides cosmetic services (e.g., Botox injections).
