Why Choose Dental Implants?

By securing your crown, bridge, or denture with dental implants, you can experience a range of functional and aesthetic benefits that simply cannot be matched. Most notably, dental implants offer unparalleled: 

  • Stability: Implant-supported restorations will never move out of position, so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence and continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods.
  • Comfort: Implant-supported restorations sit directly against the gum line and function just like natural teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last for the rest of your life.

Additionally, dental implants also provide a unique benefit to a patient's overall oral health. Tooth loss not only detracts from a patient's appearance, it also causes the jawbone to atrophy, or shrink, over time. Dental implants help to halt this bone atrophy by fusing directly with the jaw and returning stimulation to the area. No other restorative treatment can provide this benefit.

Dental Implants Candidates

Dental implants are designed for patients with missing teeth. In addition to being in good oral health, candidates should also be non-smokers (or be willing to quit for several months). One of the biggest factors affecting candidacy is jawbone strength. Since the jawbone will begin to atrophy after tooth loss, some patients will find that they do not have sufficient jawbone density to support the embedded posts. In these cases, Dr. Mormino may recommend a bone grafting or sinus lift procedure to improve a patient's candidacy. 

What to Expect During Treatment

A dental implants treatment involves multiple procedures. Fortunately, we can perform every step here in our office. During implants surgery, Dr. Mormino will place a single implant post into the jaw to replace each missing tooth. The implants will be left to heal for four to six months, during which time the posts will become fused with the surrounding jawbone. As a second procedure, Dr. Mormino will attach an abutment, or connector piece, which rests above the gum line. After the area around the abutment heals, you will return to our office to have your custom-crafted crown, bridge, or denture secured firmly in place, restoring the strength, function, and appearance of your smile. All of our restorations are made here in our dental lab, ensuring that your new teeth will blend beautifully with your smile.
