Dental implants are restorative dental solutions that replace missing or extracted permanent teeth. They’re the new standard in restoring missing teeth using metal tooth roots to anchor artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, and eliminate gaps in your smile.
The results are a beautiful smile and a full set of natural-looking teeth. The Reality Bites Dental team conveniently completes all dental implant procedures right in the office.
The practice specializes in full-mouth rehabilitation, including All-on-4® dentures anchored by four dental implants on the top and four implants on the bottom of your jawbone.
Dental implants provide the following benefits:
Dental implants and the teeth they support look like natural teeth. They offer self-confidence and an exceptional quality of life.
To determine if dental implants are right for you, the Reality Bites Dental team discusses your oral health history, takes dental X-rays, examines your gums and teeth, and reviews your treatment preferences and goals. They tailor a treatment plan that’s best suited for you.
You might need tooth extraction or bone grafting before receiving dental implants. Your dentist lets you know what to expect and how to prepare.
Before receiving dental implants, your dentist numbs your mouth to eliminate any discomfort. If needed, you can take a sedative to relax. Your provider gently inserts metal posts (implants) into your jawbone.
They digitally scan your mouth, allowing a dental lab to make custom-fitted crowns, bridges, or dentures. When your new teeth are ready, simply return to the Reality Bites Dental office, where your dentist bonds them to the implants and ensures a proper fit and superior results.
Care for your dental implants to ensure their longevity. Avoid chewing on ice and other hard objects, brush your teeth regularly, floss daily, and see the Reality Bites Dental team at least every six months for teeth cleanings and dental exams. Call your dentist immediately if your dental implants get damaged.
