Dental Implants

Dental implants are the strongest solution for missing teeth, fill gaps where the tooth was rooted, and provide an excellent alternative to dental bridges and dentures.

Dental implants look and feel like a natural tooth and unlike dentures, are permanent. Dentures can often be uncomfortable and unstable requiring special maintenance outside of daily brushing, flossing and regular cleanings.

Dental implants can last for the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene, including regular dental examinations.

If you are ready to learn more about dental implants, give us a call for a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Implant Supported Dentures

Designed for comfort and stability, implant supported dentures are long lasting and much more comfortable than conventional dentures.

Implant supported dentures are attached to dental implants and used when you don’t have teeth, but still have enough bone in your jaw to support dental implants. As with regular dental implants, artificial teeth are attached to screws or posts that are made from titanium placed into your jawbone.

Complete dentures are removable and a viable replacement for missing teeth, however, complete dentures are not as natural looking as dental implants and will need to be replaced every ten years or so. If you gain or lose weight, you may also need to replace your dentures. Because complete dentures replace all of your teeth, the underlying bone will deteriorate resulting in bone loss and a collapsed smile.

Partial dentures are used to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures rest on your gums and your abutment or surrounding natural teeth. Both partial and complete dentures make it difficult to enjoy certain foods.

With implant-supported dentures, you will have more confidence as they allow you to bite, chew, and speak naturally.

Are Dental Implants Worth It?
Dental implants replace missing teeth and are the best alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. Replacing missing teeth is vital as doing nothing creates additional problems such as bone deterioration and problems with adjoining teeth.

Permanent smile restoration with dental implants not only gives you peace of mind, but also boosts your confidence. Dental implants allow you to speak, eat, and smile without discomfort or pain.

Is A Dental Implant Necessary?
Dental implants are not always necessary, as there are additional solutions for missing teeth that may be better for your particular situation. During your complimentary dental implants consultation, Dr. Frankie Neman and her team will develop a customized treatment plan guaranteeing an accurate diagnosis. Keep in mind that Dr. Frankie Neman would never recommend a treatment that you really don’t need.
How Long Will An Implant Last?
Dental implants can last for the rest of your life as long as you practice good oral hygiene and schedule regular appointments with Dr. Frankie Neman. With that being said, the artificial tooth that sits on top of the implant may need to be tightened or replaced every ten to fifteen years.
Are Dental Implants Covered By Insurance?
Dr. Frankie Neman and her team will work with you and your dental insurance provider as not all insurance companies cover dental implants. If you are not covered, a payment plan will be developed so that you can have the best replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants are one of the best investments you can make when it comes to oral health.
Is My Consultation Free?
