Regain Confidence with Realistic Replacement Teeth!
You don’t have to feel alone when looking for faux teeth or alternative dentures. Millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss. Whether from decay, injury, or periodontal disease, you are not alone. With advances in technology, dental implants are now available here in Saint Cloud, instead of just bridges or dentures. Dental implants have many advantages, including looking and feeling just like your own teeth. Since they integrate with bone, your replacements will become permanent—you won’t be able to tell the difference. If you have dentures that don’t fit well, a dental implant procedure will help you speak and eat without worrying your teeth might slip and cause mumbling or spilling. Our dental implants help improve your oral health and self-esteem, as well as provide improved comfort over removable dentures.
About Dental Implant Procedures
Essentially, the implant is a replacement tooth root, providing a durable foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. These substitute teeth are made to match your natural teeth, allowing you to smile with confidence. We replace your missing teeth with lifelike replacements that can last as long as a lifetime. The implant itself is a tiny titanium post that acts as a tooth root. These incredibly durable posts are planted into your jaw, and the bone is allowed to heal and harden around the post, a process that takes around six to 12 weeks. Once your implant is secure, we install a customized crown that perfectly mimics the surrounding teeth, ensuring a flawless smile. While success rates vary based on your jaw, implants generally have a success rate of up to 98%.
After your implant, you will be able to smile with pride knowing you have a beautiful, full set of teeth. Implants can also be used for securing dentures or bridges. If you’re a denture-wearer who is tired of dealing with messy adhesives or ineffective, loose dentures, implant anchors may be a life-changing solution. Another advantage of our dental implants is that, unlike tooth-supported bridges, implants don’t require further tooth extraction. If you are healthy enough for a routine dental extraction or oral surgery, then you likely qualify for dental implants. Speak to our family dentist in St. Cloud to learn more today.
