Dental Implants

Nobody wants to live with the inconvenience and frustration of missing teeth. You only get one chance to make a great first impression, and your smile has a lot to do with how people respond to you.

Fortunately, dentistry has brought us some amazing advances in the area of tooth replacement. We’ve always had excellent options for replacing missing teeth, but some are definitely more effective than others. Dental implants available at Arcadia Dentaldontics are the ultimate solution and preferred by many dentists and patients.

Dr. Thai has advanced training in restoring dental implant restorations and has studied the process extensively. He is committed to learning everything there is to know about the procedure and the types of implants available. This knowledge allows him to create custom implant restorations that are functional, durable, and fit your smile perfectly.

What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants consist of a small titanium post that acts as a replacement root for a missing tooth. It is placed directly in the bone of your upper and/or lower jaw. Eventually the bone and post fuse together, with the surrounding tissue forming a natural bond with the implant. As the implant integrates with your jaw, it creates a sound structure for the replacement tooth.

Implants provide increased stability and permanence when compared to dentures and bridges. They also look natural, and since they’re actually part of your jaw structure, you can eat all your favorite foods and speak with confidence again!

Millions of people today are enjoying the benefits of a healthy smile made possible by dental implants. You may have only recently heard about implants, but they have actually had FDA and ADA (American Dental Association) approval for over 25 years!

What Does a Finished Dental Implant Look Like?

Since the titanium root is placed in your jaw, it will not be visible once your dental implant is finished. The only part of the implant that will be visible is your dental restoration, which is designed to look like a real tooth. Depending on your needs and preferences, we can use a crown, bridge, or denture to restore your tooth.

Dr. Thai creates implant restorations that are completely customized for you. He can shade and shape your restoration to enhance the overall appearance of your smile, and make sure that your restoration blends in beautifully.
