Bite & Chew Your Favorite Foods Again

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of strong titanium. Dr. William E. Hay will place it in your jaw, which begins the natural process of osseointegration. That’s a fancy way of saying that your new implant will fuse with your jawbone, so it functions like a natural part of your body. Once in place, you won’t even realize your implant is there. It can last a lifetime, if you maintain good oral care habits.

Dr. Hay can replace any number of teeth with implants. He will do a complete exam of your mouth to ensure your jaw is fully prepared to support implants. You may need a bone graft to restore your jawbone strength first, especially if you’ve lived with missing teeth for many years.

Your implant options include:

  • A Single Crown With an Implant – This configuration can replace a single tooth. It will work just like your other teeth and blend in naturally with your smile.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – If you have several missing teeth in a row, we can fill the gap with a bridge attached to implants.
  • Snap-In Dentures – Anchor your dentures to implants to keep them securely in place without adhesive. With this alternative to traditional dentures, you can eat more of the foods you love without limitation. You won’t have to worry about embarrassment from teeth that slip out of place!
  • All-on-X Dental Implants – This option uses fewer implants to replace an entire arch of teeth. It often works well if you have had bone loss in your jaw.
  • Mini Dental Implants – These will secure your new teeth without requiring a surgical procedure to strengthen your jaw. They are used most often in your lower jaw.
  • Full-Mouth Reconstruction – If you have numerous problems with your teeth, Dr. Hay will prepare a treatment plan that includes cosmetic, restorative, and surgical procedures.

It can feel nerve-wracking to have any surgical procedure. That’s why Dr. Hay can have an anesthesiologist come in if you want deep sedation for your procedure. It will help you stay comfortable and anxiety-free throughout your appointment. You can also warm up with a blanket if you feel chilly.

Common Questions About Dental Implants
What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small posts made from titanium that your dentist inserts into your jawbone to serve as replacement teeth roots. If you are missing one or more teeth, implants function as a base for several types of replacement teeth. They can be used with crowns, bridges, dentures, or full arches of fixed teeth.

Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants could be removed, although it is not likely you would need to do this. Once your implants are placed in your jawbone, they will fuse with the bone and last for decades, if not a lifetime. Your replacement teeth attached to the implants will last five to 10 years on average.

When should I get dental implants?

If you are missing any number of teeth, you owe it to yourself to consider getting implants. They are designed to function as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. Implants make crowns, bridges, and dentures more secure. They prevent bone loss by stimulating your jaw, and they restore your biting power so you can eat anything you want.
