Complete Your Smile, Enhance Your Life
Dental implants restore missing or failing teeth with long-lasting, natural-looking results. Patients can enjoy the feeling of a complete smile as they regain the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Dental implants can replace a single tooth, many teeth, or even an entire upper or lower dental arch. The oral surgeons at Whitewater Oral Surgery Group specialize in dental implant-based tooth restorations, such as full-arch restoration.
Reclaim Your Smile
Dental implants restore more than just your oral health. Missing or failing teeth can affect a person’s everyday functions, like eating and speaking, as well as self-confidence. Many of our dental implant patients tell us how life-changing the experience has been for them. We love helping our patients reclaim their smile!
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Improve oral health. Replacing a missing tooth is important to prevent bone loss, bite alignment issues, dental shifting, bacteria buildup in the tooth socket, and more.
- Results that last. Dental implants are designed to be long-term solution. Patients can make their implants last as long as possible by remembering to brush, floss, and see their dentist regularly.
- Eat your favorite foods. Foods that are off-limits to patients with dentures or missing teeth can be eaten with dental implants. Patients can enjoy steak, corn on the cob, apples, nuts, and more.
- Preserve facial balance. Bone loss in the jaw contributes to facial sagging. Since the implant post fuses with the jaw bone, facial aesthetics are better protected than with other restoration solutions.
Patients who are concerned about metal being placed in their bodies or have a metal allergy may find ceramic implants are the right tooth restoration option for them. Ceramic implants, also known as zirconia implants, are a metal-free dental implant that has been used in oral surgery since the 1960s. Traditional dental implants are made from titanium, which can cause an allergic reaction in some patients. Ceramic implants are inserted the same way as a traditional dental implant and offer a natural look and function.
To place a dental implant successfully, there must be enough bone in the jaw to support it. However, the bone that separates the maxillary sinus from the upper teeth tends to be very thin, so traditional dental implant placement may not be possible. Zygomatic implants are extra-long implants that are anchored into the zygomatic bone.
Used in the United States for over two decades, zygomatic implants provide safe and predictable results. Whitewater Oral Surgery Group is proud to offer zygomatic implants so more patients can receive the healthy, complete smile they deserve.
The Value of Dental Implants
Millions of Americans have at least one dental implant. While they may carry a higher upfront cost than other tooth replacement solutions, they deliver significant value many patients find worthwhile. With proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Whitewater Oral Surgery Group tailors every treatment plan to ensure optimal results. During your consultation, your oral surgeon will complete an oral exam, review or order X-rays or other digital imaging, and discuss your options for anesthesia. We will also provide an estimated cost of treatment.
