Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Here at Optima Dental, Dr. Houenou and our team want all of our patients to live with a beautiful, complete smile that’s no longer impacted by tooth loss. If you’re missing one or more teeth due to dental trauma, infection, or decay, we can restore your smile with dental implants.
Thanks to advancements in dental technology, dental implants are becoming a leading restorative treatment for tooth loss today. As the most natural looking, longest lasting tooth replacement solution available, dental implants restore your smile from root to crown and help simulate how teeth naturally function while helping to enhance your oral health.
Discover the dental implant process with Dr. Houenou and see why dental implants are right for you.
Explore the Dental Process
When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Houenou will first examine the condition of your mouth to ensure you have good oral health. Once he confirms your gums and jawbone are healthy enough to support dental implants, Dr. Houenou will begin creating your personalized treatment plan.
Unlike other restorative options that rely on the natural neighboring teeth or adhesives for support, dental implants are directly supported by the jaw. We use a titanium post that acts as the new root for your restoration. We use titanium because the human body is biocompatible with this particular metal, meaning it naturally bonds with your jawbone.
During this process known as osseointegration, the implant will need a few months to successfully integrate with your jawbone so it can provide ultimate stability for your final restoration. With a success rate of over 95%, your implant is made to last a lifetime with proper oral care.
We can also use dental implants to support your new dentures if you’ve lost an entire arch of teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, these new teeth do not need to be removed regularly for cleaning.
Benefits of Dental Implants
When we asked our patients to rate the comfort of their restorative treatment on a scale of one to ten, they rated conventional dentures a four or five and dental implants a nine. Dental implants give you the freedom to live life on your own terms. They have a wide variety of benefits, and many of them can change your life.
Replace Any Number of Teeth
Whether you need a single tooth, several neighboring teeth, or an entire arch of teeth replaced, Dr. Houenou has the dental implant solutions that can give you the confidence to smile again. If you’re looking for a comfortable and permanent restorative option tailored to meet your unique needs, then dental implants at Optima Dental may be the exact solution you’ve been looking for.
Enjoy Eating Again Without Pain
Dental implants allow you to eat your favorite foods again. Other tooth loss solutions like traditional dentures offer only a fraction of the chewing efficiency of your natural teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, give you the freedom to eat comfortably, knowing that your teeth won’t hold you back.
Regenerate Lost Jawbone
When you’re missing one or more teeth, your jawbone is no longer receiving proper stimulation from your tooth roots that help it stay strong and maintain its shape. This results in bone loss and can quickly alter your appearance. Dental implants are the only solution that can protect your jaw from further bone deterioration and help preserve your face shape.
Boost Your Confidence
Another advantage of dental implants is that they’re permanent, meaning you won’t have to worry about any mishaps. Dental implants blend seamlessly with your smile and help boost your confidence in social situations. You won’t have to hide your smile behind your hand anymore.
Take Care of Your New Smile with Ease
We truly believe that dental implants are the best solution available for replacing missing teeth. Unlike other restorative treatments that require extra steps to maintain their health, dental implants can be treated just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss like normal and regularly come into our Lawrenceville office for your check-ups.
