Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth. Whether you’re missing one tooth, several teeth, or a full arch, Dr. Majors can provide a solution that will restore health and beauty to your smile.
If you’re only missing a single tooth, Dr. Majors will top your implant with a stunning porcelain crown. Our crowns are customized to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth for a natural appearance. They’re also highly durable to ensure long-lasting results.
For patients who need to restore multiple teeth, there are a few different options. We can replace each tooth individually with a crown, but this can become costly and time-consuming depending on how many teeth you’re missing.
If you’re missing adjacent teeth, Dr. Majors often recommends a dental bridge. Alternatively, if you have gaps spaced throughout your smile, he can customize a partial denture just for you.
By securing these appliances with dental implants, Dr. Majors can provide a more stable and effective restoration that protects your oral health in addition to enhancing your smile.
Many patients who are missing a full arch of teeth assume that they can’t qualify for dental implants. This isn’t the case, as Dr. Majors can anchor a full denture to your jawbone with four to six dental implants.
Instead of trying to replace each tooth individually, you can save a significant amount of time and money by restoring a full arch of teeth in just one appointment. Thanks to implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy all the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile.
Dental implants are a much more cost-effective investment when you look at the longevity of the implant and the many benefits it brings you, such as improved oral health, a complete smile, and maintaining your bone mass. While we understand that dentistry can be expensive, we have seen that neglect is more expensive.
Yes, there’s a good chance you can still get dental implant treatment. In these cases, Dr. Majors will often recommend a bone graft, which is when new tissue is placed in your jaw to stimulate bone growth. As the existing jawbone naturally fuses to the new bone, it becomes stronger over time. This creates a great foundation for the dental implant to be placed.
Dental implants are the only tooth restoration that reverses the damage caused by missing teeth. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, implants stimulate healthy jawbone growth and prevent gum recession.
During your consultation with Dr. Majors, he’ll review your symptoms and condition to recommend the treatment that’s right for you.
Typically, the journey to a successfully placed dental implants can last anywhere from three to six months. After the initial placement of the implant fixture, some time is needed for it to heal and for osseointegration to take place. This is the process where your body develops a firm attachment to the titanium fixture.
Once you’re ready, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Majors can place the abutment and your attractive porcelain crown. Now you’ll be ready to show off your smile to all your friends.
With proper home care and maintenance, your dental implant can last a lifetime. Your implant will be permanently placed, shaped to look and feel like a natural tooth.
Proper home care and maintenance means treating your implant like one of your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily and attend your regular check-ups throughout the year.
Yes, but it’s not medically advisable to begin the implant process until they’re finished growing. Everyone matures at their own rate, so even if your son or daughter is older than 18, you’ll want to consult with Dr. Majors about the ideal time for them to get dental implants.
Gum disease is a bacterial infection that can wreak havoc on your smile if left untreated. Fortunately, we feature effective treatments for all stages of gum disease.
