  • Teeth are loose
  • Bone loss, Extreme periodontal disease

Single Tooth Implants

Why Consider Dental Implants

Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

What Are Dental Implants

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. A titanium post is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Dental Implants Designed to Last

Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to ten years. At some point, they will likely need to be replaced. Those costs can really add up over time. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for.

Benefits of Implant Retained Dentures

  • Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth
  • Easier Eating: Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods.
  • Improved Speech: Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip out.
  • Improved Taste: The roof of the mouth is not covered and food can be tasted fully.
  • Preservation of Bone: Leaving empty spaces from missing teeth leads to bone loss
  • Improved Comfort: Implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.

Advanced Technology Using CBCT

Precise planning for the placement of these dental implants is done using an advanced technology using CBCT.

CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography which is a sophisticated 3D imaging system used by Dr. Kidess for the planning stages of your implant treatment. Unlike regular x-rays, or most other types of imaging, CBCT scans can obtain clear, and precise 3 dimensional pictures of the bone structure, vital
anatomical structures and soft tissue.

The typical approach for treatment planning for dental implants involves a thorough clinical examination, study of bone structures using clear panoramic radiographs and a diagnostic wax-up. Use of a CBCT creates accurate 3-D radiographs for ridge mapping, location of vital anatomical structures, and for proper planning and placement of dental implants.
