At David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, patients can enjoy high-quality, personalized care for all members of their family. They can even enjoy the restoration and beautification of dental implants, which are placed by an in-office periodontist. Dr. Spilkia can restore dental implants in order to bring a patient's pure beauty back to the forefront of their smile.
Dental implants are specialized restorations that are used for a few reasons. A dental implant can be a substitute for a single missing tooth, or if several teeth are missing, multiple implants can be placed to replace those teeth. Implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the bone underneath the gums. The titanium material is important, as it is biocompatible with the patient's body and readily accepted as its own. The implant is then restored with a dental crown or bridge, which will replace the appearance of the missing teeth. Implants are important to maintain bone structure and keep the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place after a tooth has gone missing from the patient's smile.
Dental implants can also be placed and used in conjunction with dentures. Dentures can snap into place with the dental implants, eliminating the need for dental adhesives such as pastes and gels that often don't suffice. Many patients have floating dentures due to the lack of an adequate ridge of gum and bone, so dental implants can be used to secure the dentures in their proper place and reduce irritation, movement, and an uncomfortable fit. You will be able to talk, laugh, and enjoy your favorite foods without difficulty, or fear of your teeth slipping.

Dental implants have many benefits. They do not require that patients grind down completely healthy adjacent teeth, and they can help restore and stimulate bone growth underneath the gums. This is important to eliminate that "sunken-in" appearance that many denture wearers experience. Dental implants are permanent, long-lasting restorations that can improve a patient's ability to bite, chew, and talk more than any other cosmetic restoration. They require no special care or attention, and are treated just like your natural teeth.
