Dental Implants

The Comfort & Confidence of Dental Implants

The first “fixed” option is dental implants. Dental implant restorations are replacements for lost or missing teeth. They look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Dental implants can provide a stable attachment for a single tooth replacement, dental bridge, full arch dental implant bridge and even complete dentures.

Elmwood Dental Implant and Restoration Center has been the leader in providing dental implants and developing innovative implant-based treatments for more than 25 years. We have helped thousands of people discover the benefits of long lasting, natural looking dental implants and implant supported bridges. Patients tell us their implant restorations give them confidence and improve their quality of life. Plus, with studies that have documented a greater than 98% success rate for dental implants after ten years, there's never been a better time to consider them for your tooth replacement needs.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the next best thing to your own teeth:

  • Nothing looks or feels as close to your natural teeth as implants.
  • Bridgework and dentures may need to be replaced every ten to fifteen years, but implants will last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Implants will not decay, fracture or foster gum disease.
  • Implants can replace one or a series of lost teeth.
  • Implants won't compromise surrounding natural teeth.
  • Unlike conventional bridgework or dentures, implants stimulate bone growth and help preserve oral health.
  • Implant-based HYBRIDGE full arch dental implant bridge's now offers new hope to patients with the most complex dental issues. Hybridge replaces up to 12 teeth permanently.

The Dental Implant Process

We develop customized treatment plans with the best options to meet your goals.

Step 1: Consultation and planning.

Your initial Implant Consultation will include:

  • A discussion of your chief complaints

  • A discussion of your goals and preferences

  • A review of your dental and medical history

  • A dental exam

  • X-Rays

We will develop a customized treatment plan, review it with you and help you choose the best options to meet your goals.

Step 2: Replacing the implants(s).

The implants are oftentimes placed with few or no incisions. We will review your medical history with you and prescribe the proper medication to make your experience comfortable.

Step 3: Forming and fitting the prosthetic tooth or bridge.

Impressions may be taken the same day the implant is placed, or we may wait up to a few months for healing to occur. Your prosthetic tooth or bridge will be fabricated and adjusted during one or more "trial fittings," then attached to the abutment(s). We will teach you how to care for your new teeth and recommend a schedule of visits for cleaning.
