Dental implants are one of dentistry’s most innovative solutions to a very old problem – premature tooth loss. These replacement teeth are meant to look and function exactly like the original tooth, allowing the patient to brush, floss, rinse, eat, and speak without impairment. Dental implants from our experienced dentists at Preferred Family Dental are a solution to tooth loss and each treatment plan is customized to look completely natural.

Understanding Dental Implants
Dental implants can significantly improve not only the aesthetic appearance of your smile but also the quality of your oral and overall health. These advanced procedures can help you be able to speak and chew with greater ease, restoring the lost function that results from missing teeth with permanent results that look and feel like natural teeth.
Missing Tooth Replacement
Dental implants can be used to replace more than one tooth. Depending upon your candidacy, dental implants can be used to replace entire sections of teeth, eliminating gaps and spaces with replacements that closely mimic your natural teeth. However, for patients who may not be candidates for numerous adjacent dental implants, a fixed dental bridge can provide an extremely stable substitute that simultaneously blends in with the natural teeth. In these cases, a pair of dental implants are used to anchor the bridge, providing exceptional support and reducing the potential for movement or slippage.
Implant-Supported Dentures and Mini-Dental Implants
For patients in need of a full-mouth restoration but who are looking for an alternative to traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures can restore functionality with a number of added benefits. Implant-supported dentures are designed to look and feel like natural teeth and do not require messy inconvenient adhesives. Secured into place with dental implants, these innovative dentures are easy to care for, reduce bone loss, and do not inhibit the diet of the patient. As an additional option, mini-dental implants can be used to secure dentures into place for patients seeking a more affordable and less invasive denture alternative. The mini-dental implant procedure can typically be completed in a single office visit. Patients with implant-supported dentures often experience a boost in confidence along with their rejuvenated smiles.
