Are Dental Implants Right for You?
A dental implant is a ridged titanium post that is placed into your bone that mimics a tooth root. After a specified healing time, a crown, bridge or denture is attached. They are a great option for someone that has a missing tooth, been in an accident, or has dentures and wishes to have a permanent restoration in its place. Because they are durable, aesthetically pleasing and restore true function to your mouth, they are becoming the natural course of treatment for those with missing teeth.
How does an implant work?
A dental implant has microscopic ridges on its titanium surface. After it is placed in your jaw, it is left alone to heal for several months. During this time, your natural bone attaches to the implant and grows around it, until it becomes part of the bone itself. This creates a stable, permanent platform for a restoration to be placed on. Patients that have implants after having had dentures for years remark how great it feels to eat food and speak without the bulk and slippage of traditional dentures.
Implants are broken down into three parts. The implant is placed into the bone and acts as a tooth root. After the implant has had sufficient time to heal, an abutment is screwed onto it. The abutment holds the final restoration, in the form of a crown, bridge, or denture.
There are many reasons why one or more dental implants may be right for you. They can replace a single tooth or support a bridge with multiple pontics (the tooth-shaped spacer between implants). Another popular use of implants is the all-on-four technique developed to support full-arch dentures. This technique places four implants, on which a full denture is permanently attached.
At Tyson’s Dental, our expert staff works with our state-of-the-art onsite lab to deliver custom restorations for a beautiful smile that will last a lifetime.
The All-On-Four Implant Technique
If you are considering an implant retained full denture, this technique may be right for you. Dr Nahlah places four implants and then permanently attaches a full-arch denture. You’ll be able to taste and eat your favorite foods. No lifting, no slipping, and you’ll be able to speak clearly.
If you have a few teeth that are missing, but don’t require full dentures, you may consider an implant supported bridge. It places two implants with a tooth-shaped spacer, called a pontic, in between them. You may also have one or more spots where a single tooth is missing, and a bridge is not necessary.
Sometimes you are missing only one tooth, whether from a cracked root, an accident, or you have a congenitally missing tooth that never developed when you were a child. Now you can replace that one tooth, without cutting into other teeth to make a bridge.
If you have been considering dental implants, now may be the time to contact our office for more information! Dental implants can repair your smile and restore full function your bite. They help support the remaining bone in your jaw and help prevent further bone loss. This can help prevent a drawn appearance and collapsed bite.
Implants can restore function to your mouth by building the jaw back to a point of original function. They can help prevent jaw pain, headaches and perhaps future tooth loss, by taking the pressure off the jaw joint and displacing the force around your whole mouth.
Because dental implants are titanium and permanently attached to your bone, they last much longer than other dental restorations, and with proper care and routine professional checkups, they can last a lifetime.
Imagine enjoying a juicy steak or corn on the cob without the worry of your denture slipping, and no more sticky dental adhesive or expensive specialty flossers to get under your bridge.

One of Healthcare's Greatest Values
Even with all the benefits, the cost of dental implant procedures is an important consideration. When your case brings together the latest imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, this service offers one of the best values in modern health care. Compared to the replacement of other hard structures and joints of the body, most services with dental implants can be done at a small fraction of those costs. Better yet, most patients carry on with normal activities right away and usually enjoy a lifetime of normal chewing, bite stability, and appearance. But we know the cost of dental implants is an important part of creating a complete plan that works for you.
The cost of dental implant services involves several critical factors unique to each patient. A fee quoted without careful evaluation doesn't consider what's best for your mouth. And comparisons may not account for the difference in the quality of materials used, along with the training of the doctor performing this highly technical service. Dr. Nahlah customizes treatment planning after He has spent time analyzing what would be best for each one.
One thing remains absolutely certain: You'll get the highest value possible in modern implant dentistry. That means years of natural function and a smile that's secure and makes you proud to show. We look forward to discussing how we can partner together for the best solution for you!
