What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a highly effective tooth replacement solution that gives you natural-looking results. They consist of titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth, followed by artificial teeth that replace the crown. The restorations attach to the titanium posts via abutments, and the final result looks and feels like your natural teeth.

Dental implants are anchored into the jaw and fuse with the jawbone permanently to form a stable foundation for restorations. They are the only solution that replaces both the root and crown of a missing tooth, which is vital for preventing bone loss in that area. Implants can also support a variety of restorations, including dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Image of a dentist holding an xrayWhile nearly anyone with missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants, you must have good oral health and sufficient jawbone for your treatment to be successful. These requirements create a healthy foundation for your restorations and prevent future issues. If you already have a strong and adequate jawbone, then you already have the base needed to successfully support the implants.

In case of problems like tooth decay or gum disease, it is important to treat them before beginning your implant procedure. Also, if your jawbone is weak or insufficient, a bone graft or sinus lift can add volume and density to the jaw, creating a stable area to anchor the implant post.

Our dentists will examine your mouth and establish whether you need pretreatment before receiving your dental implants. We work with an oral surgeon and periodontist to ensure that you receive experienced dental implant services in Blue Ridge.

Getting Dental Implants in Blue Ridge

When you visit our practice for your dental implants, our dentist will begin your treatment with a thorough assessment to establish your eligibility, identify your smile needs, and plan your treatment. Our friendly team will walk you through all the information about your oral health and treatment options so that you can make an informed decision about which treatment is right for you.

After establishing your dental needs, our dentist will refer you to a trusted specialist who will place the implants into your jaw using the highest precision and technology. You'll then take time to heal and allow the implants to fuse with the jawbone. Lastly, our dentist will place your custom restoration, completing your smile.

We offer quality restoration work and refer you to trusted specialists for any bone grafts or sinus lifts whenever necessary to improve the long-term success of your treatment.

Our Implant-Supported Restorations at Blue Ridge Dental

We offer a variety of implant restorations to meet your unique needs. Our implant restoration options include:

Crowns: We recommend implant-supported crowns for replacing a single missing tooth.

Bridges: Implant-supported bridges replace a series of several missing teeth in a row.

Dentures: Partial and full denture options are available to replace multiple or an entire arch of missing teeth.

We also provide implant-retained dentures that use two implants for support. A trusted surgeon places the implants into your jaw to support the dentures. We then provide attachments that are retrofitted into your existing dentures, so you can keep your original prosthetics without getting new ones.

All-on-4® Restorations

Image of dental implantsAll-on-4 treatments are dentures that rely on four strategically placed implants for support to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are ideal if you have lost several teeth or are looking to upgrade your traditional dentures for more convenience and comfort.

During All-on-4 treatment, an oral surgeon places the four implants into your jaw to form a foundation for the dentures. Once you heal, a mobile lab will come to our offices to give you the customized denture and restore your smile.

All-on-4 restorations provide natural-looking results and an appealing smile. They are also more secure and stable than traditional dentures, and you don't have to worry about them slipping or falling off. With All-on-4, you can continue enjoying your favorite meals without changing your diet to accommodate your new teeth. They also take less time to install and heal, are less invasive, and have a shorter recovery time.
