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.
