Unlike traditional treatments of crowns, bridges, root canals and dentures, dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth.
We offer Biohorizons Dental Implant System at our office, which has offered dentists the ability to provide secure implant restorations that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
BioHorizons dental implants are an innovative new form of tooth replacement. These dental implants work like traditional implants, with special Laser-Lok technology. They are lightweight, biocompatible, titanium implants that will secure prostheses/ crown that look and feel like your natural teeth.
The dental implants are embedded into the bone, abutments/post are attached to the implant, and then prostheses, usually in the form of crowns, are secured.
BioHorizons dental implants differ from other dental implants because the cone-shaped screw has micro engineered grooves that provide an attachment surface for both bone and connective tissue/ gums. While traditional implants cannot form a solid attachment to soft tissue/ gums. This prevents bone loss and results in stable implants that will last a lifetime.
Why consider dental implants?
Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.
Benefits of dental implants
• replaces missing teeth
• maintains bone
• maintains your youthful appearance
• restores your natural smile
• restores chewing function
Individual teeth options:
Individual missing teeth can be replaced by dental implants without altering your healthy adjacent teeth. Once dental implants are placed, posts (or abutments) are attached, providing support for your final crowns.
Multiple teeth option:
If all upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture. Due to bone loss, traditional dentures may become loose and unstable over time. Dental implant supported dentures and maintain bone so dentures remain stable in your mouth.
