A dental implant is a bio-compatible, man-made substitute to replace missing tooth roots. They are made of surgical grade titanium. Implants come in various shapes and sizes to fit various situations. Most are cylinders placed into bone and allowed to heal undisturbed while bone heals around them, locking them in like an anchor. After a few months, the implants are used as a foundation for replacing the missing teeth. In some cases, Immediate Implants are placed and temporary teeth are cemented the SAME DAY!
30 million people in the U.S. have no teeth in one or both arches and most are unaware of what dentistry has to offer. Tens of millions more people have lost some one or more teeth besides the wisdom teeth. Implants can restore your chewing function and esthetics to the equivalent of natural teeth and sometimes even better.
Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, improve appearance, end embarrassment, and give real self-confidence to patients who need them. They are a real breakthrough!
Dental implants are the most stable and best solution for missing teeth. This procedure is one which Drs. Seth and Dana Keiles have done repeatedly for satisfied patients over many years. Drs. Keiles also have in-depth training and great experience in this area and will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Today, dental implants are the Gold Standard. Because of proven success, preservation of existing teeth, and no susceptibility to dental decay (cavities), dental implants are the answer to missing teeth. Dentures and partials are no longer necessary for most people.
