Dental Implants Are the Gold Standard of Tooth Replacement

Missing teeth affect more than simply the aesthetic appearance of your smile. When you do not have all your teeth, your ability to eat foods diminishes, speech becomes impaired and your teeth and bite may shift. The roots of teeth also serve to stimulate healthy jaw bone growth and prevent bone deterioration. When a tooth is missing, the bone in that area is not engaged and begins to recede, which can likely cause your surrounding teeth to shift into the gap of space. Dental implants provided by Dr. Ty James and Dr. Brice McMurphy are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement because they can solve all these issues and concerns.

A dental implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth, from the color of the dental implant crown, to the chewing capabilities and even the stimulation of the jaw bone. The dental implant itself is composed of a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw bone. After healing, an abutment piece is attached to the implant to hold a lifelike dental crown. Your dental implant will function normally and with proper at-home care, will last you a lifetime.
Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Permanence with proper care
  • Lifelike appearance
  • Jaw bone stimulation
  • Improved speech and bite
  • Increase in self-esteem

YOUR DENTAL IMPLANT OPTIONS

Dental implants blend seamlessly into the smile to replace missing teeth with screw-like implants that adhere with the jaw bone. As you bite and chew with the attached dental implant and dental crown, the dental implant provides the same bone stimulation as a natural tooth root, which keeps your bone levels healthy and protects the integrity of your smile.

Single dental implant: If you are missing even one tooth, your oral health is at risk. Without a tooth to stimulate the jaw bone, bone atrophy begins to occur which can lead to shifting of other teeth or increased risk of infection. We can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking dental implant and crown the same day a tooth is removed.

Multiple dental implants: Missing more than one tooth is common and should be addressed immediately. Unlike a tooth supported bridge which relies on surrounding teeth to support the restoration, dental implants provide a healthy, more natural alternative to bridges, which will never shift, decay or require root canal treatment.

Full arch dental implants: If you have dentures and are looking for a more stable, healthier alternative, we can complete your smile in one visit. This option uses a number of dental implants (as few as four) surgically placed in the jaw bone to support a custom, natural-looking prosthesis. There are no pastes or need to worry about slipping dentures; this option is designed to stay in place.

Advanced Technology for Superior Results

When we perform dental implant surgery, we use advanced technology for successful results. We utilize a cone beam CT scanner (CBCT) to capture a highly detailed view of your jaw and oral structure. This shows us bone volume levels, locations of nerves and the position of other tooth roots. By combining this with advanced computer technology, we can create a dental implant guide. This dental implant guide allows us to perform the surgery with precision and removes any guesswork involved. When performing a sinus lift or bone graft, our doctors utilize PIEZOSURGERY®, which cuts bone without harming the soft tissues surrounding it. By using these technologies, we are better able to offer our patients effective and successful dental implant surgery as well as a speedy recovery.

Trust in Experienced Care

For those with multiple missing teeth or who are completely without teeth in an upper or lower arch, we offer implant supported denture options. This option allows us to place dental implants in your jaw and attach a denture to them for added stability and bite strength. Drs. Ty James and Brice McMurphy have advanced training in implant and oral surgery as well as take double to triple the required number of continuing education courses to stay ahead in their field. If you have dental fear or anxiety, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to ensure your surgery is simple and comfortable.
