This patient had been struggling with failing dental work done in Europe in his front teeth and a loose partial denture replacing his back teeth. We treated him with 6 upper dental implants and a fixed porcelain bridge to get him smiling again.

After' dental treatment

This nice gentleman had come to see us because all of his teeth had been breaking due to cavities and failing old dental work. He had stopped smiling and had trouble eating the foods he loved. We treated him by replacing all his upper and lower teeth with dental implants and fixed porcelain bridge work. He now smiles wide and eats the foods he loves! He even travels back from Florida to see us for his cleanings.

Use Cases for Dental Implants

Single tooth replacements

These replacements use a single implant as a standalone unit to replace a single tooth’s root. A single implant does not involve any treatment to the surrounding teeth. Dental implants are very durable and stable, providing a long-lasting solution for your missing tooth. At Southtowns Dental, we create a custom crown that matches the color and shape of your natural teeth, giving you a seamless smile.

Replacing multiple teeth

This is done by using what is known as a bridge. A dental implant bridge can replace multiple teeth by using only two dental implants. Our dentists will create a custom bridge that matches your surrounding teeth, giving you a natural-looking smile and improved functionality. We use a high-quality porcelain material to ensure durability and long-lasting results.

Dentures

If you’re missing or losing many teeth, a hybrid denture is your best solution. It’s made with a combination of denture and bridge materials to replace all your missing teeth in one prosthesis. It’s commonly supported by four dental implants for the lower teeth and six dental implants for the upper teeth. With hybrid dentures, you no longer have to worry about messy adhesives or uncomfortable removable dentures. They look and function just like your natural teeth, giving you a more confident smile. Dental implants can also be used to secure traditional dentures, preventing them from slipping or moving while speaking or eating.

Full mouth replacement

Full mouth replacement is a comprehensive dental treatment that replaces all teeth in both jaws, using options like dental implants, bridges, or dentures. It involves evaluation, planning, and collaboration among specialists, and maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for long-lasting results. Our dental implants are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that integrates with your jawbone for stability and longevity. With proper care and regular dental checkups, your full mouth replacement can last a lifetime.

Dental Implants at Southtowns Dental

We’ll tell you everything you need to know about traditional and mini dental implants. These dental implants look and function as if they’re your original teeth, and prevent bone loss commonly associated with missing teeth. Because your jaw is an integral part of your face structure, preserving its original shape will keep your appearance youthful. If the jaw recedes, the skin around your mouth will sag and appear shrunken.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the foundation of crowns, bridges, and dentures that we use to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a metal cylinder made of titanium with convenient screw threads. It functions as an artificial tooth root to support a new tooth, bridge, or denture. Dental Implants are inserted into the jaw with a relatively pain-free procedure that our skilled dental professionals have performed countless times. After a healing period, your dental implants will be firmly anchored to the jawbone.

Also, dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed in the jawbone. They provide a durable and natural-looking solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both appearance and function. By integrating with the jawbone, dental implants securely hold a replacement tooth or bridge, allowing individuals to regain the ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile confidently. They are also used to anchor dentures in place for a more stable and comfortable fit. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even a full set of teeth.

After the implants are placed, they will be left undisturbed for a period of several months while the surrounding bone and soft tissues grow around the dental implant, essentially making it as good as a permanent, natural tooth root. Following the healing phase, we enter into the restoration phase where your new tooth will be attached to the implant.

Traditional versus Mini Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants are tooth-root replacements placed into and fused with the jawbone. The dental implant simulates the root of a pre-existing tooth and will look, feel, and function like your natural tooth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants don’t move or shift, and they can last a lifetime. Traditional implants can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or all of the teeth in your mouth. These dental implants have also proven to be reliable, with a 95% or higher success rate, supported by decades of clinical experience and hundreds of thousands of satisfied patients. Though age is not a determinant for dental implants, the amount of bone in your jaw and your overall health can be a deciding factor. Regardless of where you think you stand, our staff will work with you to see if you’re eligible for this life-changing procedure.

Mini dental implants are commonly used to secure dentures and eliminate sore spots. They’re also a quick, cost-effective way to keep your dentures from slipping or falling out. This greatly improves your speaking and eating ability, allowing you to live a healthier, happier life. Mini dental implants are placed in one visit at our Buffalo office and do not require surgery. Our dental implant professionals use a local anesthetic to numb the area where the implant will be placed, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. Mini dental implants have also been shown to improve patients’ quality of life significantly, leading to increased confidence and overall satisfaction.

Dental Implant FAQs

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium, that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth.

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be a permanent tooth replacement solution.

The dental implant procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring you won’t feel any pain during the surgery. Afterward, mild discomfort and swelling may occur, but it can be managed with pain medications.

Dental implants are designed to closely mimic natural teeth. They are custom-made to match your surrounding teeth in terms of color, shape, and size, making them virtually indistinguishable.

While most people can be candidates for dental implants, a thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary. Factors like oral health, bone density, and overall health will determine if you are a suitable candidate.

The dental implant process can vary depending on factors such as the number of implants, the need for additional procedures (like bone grafting), and the individual’s healing process. On average, the entire process may take several months from start to finish.

Dental implants offer several advantages over dentures. They are more stable, comfortable, and durable. Implants also stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss, and provide a natural look and feel.

Dental implants require regular oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. Proper oral care ensures the longevity and health of the implants.

Dental implant coverage varies depending on the insurance plan. While some insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost, others may not cover them at all. It’s best to check with your insurance provider for specific coverage details.

Dental implant surgery is generally safe, but as with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks such as infection, implant failure, nerve damage, or sinus problems. However, these complications are rare, and proper planning and care minimize the risks.

I have been a patient at Southtown Dental for several years. After 50 years of not looking forward to going to the dentist, I can say that I actually enjoy going now. The hygienist, Deanna, is outstanding. Not only does she do a terrific job but she is gentle and very personable. The office staff is professional and on point. They are also very welcoming and friendly. It really comes down to the dentist care which has always been very good. Today my teeth are clean and sparkly- I look forward to going back in 6 months!
