What are Dental Implants and How Do They Work?

Dental implants are state-of-the-art restorations that replace missing teeth from root to crown. They consist of a biocompatible titanium post, which serves as a sturdy foundation, and a custom-designed crown or denture that mimics the appearance and function of natural teeth.

The dental implant process involves several stages:

Consultation: Your journey begins with an in-depth consultation at Lakeside Smiles. Our experienced team will assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and determine if dental implants are the ideal solution for you.

Implant Placement: During a minor surgical procedure, the implant post is precisely placed into your jawbone. Over time, the post fuses with the bone, providing a stable and permanent anchor for your new tooth restoration.

Healing and Integration: As your implant heals, osseointegration occurs, allowing the implant to become a natural part of your jawbone. This process ensures the stability and durability of your implant.

Custom Restoration: Once osseointegration is complete, a custom crown, bridge, or denture is securely attached to the implant post. This restoration is meticulously designed to blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, creating a harmonious and natural smile.

Single Tooth Implants

When a single tooth is missing, a dental implant offers a tailored and permanent solution. A single tooth implant replaces both the root and the visible portion of the tooth, ensuring a strong and functional replacement that looks and feels like a natural tooth. With a single tooth implant at Lakeside Smiles, you can enjoy the comfort and confidence of a complete smile.

Implant-supported Dentures

If you're seeking to restore an entire arch of missing teeth, implant-supported dentures provide unmatched stability and comfort. These dentures are securely anchored to multiple dental implants, eliminating the need for messy adhesives and worries about slipping. Implant-supported dentures allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, knowing that your dentures are secure and reliable.

Comfort and Relaxation: Dental Sedation for Implant Procedures

At Lakeside Smiles, your comfort and well-being are our top priorities. We understand that undergoing a dental implant procedure can be a significant step, and we're here to ensure your experience is as pleasant as possible. That's why we offer various dental sedation options to help you feel at ease throughout your implant journey, including:

  • Laughing gas
  • Oral sedation
  • IV sedation
  • In-office general anesthesia

Rest easy knowing that whichever sedation option you choose, our expert team is dedicated to ensuring your well-being and comfort. We'll discuss your preferences, medical history, and individual needs to determine the most suitable sedation method for you. Your implant journey at Lakeside Smiles is designed to be both relaxing and rewarding, resulting in a beautifully restored smile you can enjoy with confidence.

Why Implants are the Best Tooth Loss Solution

At Lakeside Smiles, we're dedicated to helping you achieve a smile that looks great and feels even better. Our dental implant solutions are crafted with precision, care, and a deep understanding of your unique needs. Still not sure if you’re ready to get started? Here are the top reasons that you should choose implant dentistry:

Long-term Solution

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss. Unlike traditional restorations, which may need replacement over time, dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care, making them a sound investment in your oral health and well-being.

Preserve Bone Health

When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can begin to deteriorate. Dental implants stimulate the bone, preventing bone loss and maintaining the structural integrity of your facial features.

Natural Look and Feel

Dental implants provide the closest resemblance to natural teeth in terms of appearance, function, and comfort. They allow you to enjoy your favorite foods, speak naturally, and smile confidently without any concerns.

  • Consultation and treatment planning
  • Implant placement
