FULL SMILES

Dental Implants

Voted #1 in Northwest Arkansas for Cosmetic Dentistry including dental implants!

Let’s get your natural smile back.

Are you one of the 70 percent of American adults between the ages of 35 and 44 missing a tooth?

Millions of Americans have lost one or multiple teeth and have considered tooth-replacement options such as dentures and bridges. But in the last few years, another tooth-replacement option has increased in popularity.

That option is dental implants.

Restore Modern Dentistry offers patients high-quality dental implants that look, feel and function just like natural teeth and can restore your beautiful smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a tooth-replacement option that starts with a metal post surgically placed into the jawbone. Once placed, the post acts as a root and, over time, fuses into the jaw itself through a process known as osseointegration.

When the post is fully fused into the jaw, a porcelain crown that looks just like a natural tooth is placed. This crown portion is visible in the mouth and fills in the gap in your smile.

The Better Option for Restoring Your Smile

Why are so many people choosing dental implants?

The biggest reason is that implants look, feel and function like a natural tooth, which allows you to restore your smile and enables you to eat and drink as you would with your natural teeth.

People choose dental implants because they’re durable, and with good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing regularly) and seeing the dentist at least twice a year, they can last decades.

Another significant but less well-known benefit of dental implants is that they keep you from losing other teeth because they help to stimulate the jawbone under the missing teeth. This keeps the teeth around the space healthy and also helps to keep the teeth on the opposite jaw intact, too.

Dental implants also help prevent the teeth adjacent to the space from moving, reducing bite problems and jaw issues later in life.

But overwhelmingly, the biggest reason people choose dental implants is that implants restore their smiles and bring back confidence.

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, these reasons are why more than 3 million people currently have dental implants and demand for dental implants increases from year to year.

Dental Implants vs. Other Tooth-Replacement Options

Dental implants have several significant benefits over other tooth-replacement options such as dentures and dental bridges, including:

Appearance. Dental implants look better because they’re made of high-quality material that can match your natural teeth. This means that your implant will blend right into your smile.

Strength. Dental implants are made of porcelain, which is very strong and can last for decades when taken care of through proper brushing and flossing.

Improved health. Did you know that removable dentures can cause bone tissue loss, while dental implants can improve bone growth, which means better jaw and overall health?

Use. As dental implants look, feel and function just like natural teeth, you can eat with confidence because you can bite and chew as you would with your natural teeth. Additionally, dental implants, because they’re fixed in your jaw, do not slip when you’re eating or drinking.

Speech. Again, since dental implants are fixed into the jaw, they do not slip when you talk like removable dentures do. Some denture wearers also complain that their dentures cause a lisp or speech impediment. You do not have to worry about that with a dental implant.

Maintaining tooth structure. Unlike other tooth-replacement choices, such as dental bridges, dental implants do not require removing healthy tooth structures to stabilize the restoration.

Safety. Dental implants are among the safest artificial tooth-replacement options out there and have a very high success rate.

Who Is an Ideal Dental Implant Candidate?

A few factors go into assessing whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants. We recommend that you ask yourself the following questions.

  • Are you tired of dentures?
  • Have you worn dentures for years, and they no longer fit, or are they starting to feel uncomfortable?
  • Do you want to replace a single missing tooth?
  • Are you missing multiple teeth and feel self-conscious about your smile?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, dental implants could be right for you.

Other factors that contribute to being a good candidate for dental implants include:

  • You have enough bone tissue to support the dental implant (if you do not, you may be able to receive a bone graft to increase tissue in the area).
  • You have good overall oral health, including gum health.
  • You’re a nonsmoker.
