Lifelong, Natural-Looking Tooth Replacement
Do you have missing teeth that you want to have replaced? Are you wearing dentures that slip and slide whenever you eat or speak? If so, dental implants from Dr. Scott Quandt may be the solution for you. Dr. Quandt can use dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth and to stabilize dentures.
About Dental Implants
Dental implants have become the restoration of choice for many of our patients with missing teeth. They provide stability, unlike any other tooth replacement option. Dental implants are composed of biocompatible titanium. Dr. Quandt places the titanium implant into the jawbone, and the implant and bone then fuse together in a process called osseointegration. This creates a solid base to support the replacement teeth.
The dental implant acts similarly to a natural tooth root, providing stability and protecting the jawbone from deterioration. They are designed to be a permanent, natural-looking replacement for missing teeth and can last a lifetime with the proper maintenance. Taking care of your dental implant is as easy as consistently brushing, flossing, and having regular dental cleanings.
If you have been struggling with loose, ill-fitting dentures, Dr. Quandt may be able to help you with implant-supported dentures. Even patients with some jawbone loss may be candidates for implant-supported dentures thanks to 3M mini-implants. Dr. Quandt will strategically place the mini-implants for maximum denture support. In addition, with 3M mini-implants, Dr. Quandt is often able to use your existing denture to fit over the implants to create a more comfortable fit. If the jawbone is strong enough, conventional implants, not to be confused with mini-implants, can help create additional stability. Many different arrangements for support are available for dentures with conventional implants. Dr. Quandt can let you know exactly what you need to get the fit you deserve.
