Why Choose Implants For Individual Tooth Replacement?
There is no doubt that dental implants are the more natural looking solution to missing teeth. With individual implants, your dentist will have more control over placement, that offers a better overall appearance. With creating a crown to attach to the abutment, this will be unique for your smile. Teeth are shaped differently, and there is no generic solution available that blends naturally like a custom crown.
The dentist will look at your surrounding teeth, and make an artificial tooth that matches these for a seamless transition that no one would even know was not your natural tooth. He will take into consideration the color and shape of the teeth and use computer programming to sculpt the tooth to exact specifics desired, for a better result.
Aside from dental implants being more natural in appearance, they are also more comfortable for the patient. After a while, most people forget they even had the procedure done. They require no additional that you wouldn’t do for your natural teeth.
Perhaps the best advantage to having a dental implant installed is longevity. They will last forever if properly cared for, and you follow your dentist’s instructions. You can expect many great benefits with individual dental implants that include:
- A permanent solution to tooth loss
- More Secure
- Better Comfort
- Prevents Alignment Issues
- More Natural Looking
- Tooth Replacement In One Day
- Minimally Invasive

With the latest techniques and advancements in the dental field, are finding that there is less discomfort for procedures and the recovery time is significantly reduced. With dental implants, Burke Dental uses 3D digital imaging to get a complete view of your jawbone structure, tooth placement, and any complications that could affect the placement of an implant.

The dental implant procedure will take under two hours to complete. It can be done the same time as extraction, or in a separate visit after the examination has been done.

Doing nothing to fill the gap in your smile has more consequences than you might think. When a gap is left, the remaining teeth will begin to shift to fill the void. This can cause major alignment problems and even result in the adjacent teeth becoming crooked. Correcting alignment problems can become expensive, and may require a longer treatment time. But with the use of dental implants, you can prevent shifting from occurring while improving the look of your smile.
Dental implants are comprised of three parts. The titanium post is inserted into the jawbone, the abutment that is attached to the post, and a restorative crown that secures to the abutment. When talking about dental implants what a person is usually referring to is the crown that they see, but it is more about how the restoration is fitted. The implant provides stronger support for the crown.
Most patients are good candidates to receive dental implants. However, your dentist, Dr. Willis, will need to exam the condition of your jaw to assess whether or not the implant will be a good fit for you. In some cases, a person doesn’t have enough bone mass to support the implant. If one where to be placed without proper grafts, the result could be an implant failure. That is why it is imperative that you have a well-trained dentist perform the examination and procedure.
The Pain Of Losing A Tooth
There is nothing like losing a tooth as an adult. While when we were younger, it was natural to lose teeth, for the adult teeth to come in. But there are no backup teeth once you lose your second set. So naturally, missing a tooth, no matter if it is one or several can be devastating because they won’t come back on their own.
But thankfully, with the advancements in the dental field, and your skilled oral surgeon, Dr. Willis, we can correct the problem to reveal a beautiful set of teeth, with no unsightly gaps.
