Dental implants are the most natural-looking way to replace missing teeth.

They have many benefits that make them the preferred method for permanent dental restoration.

Dr. Desbordes will surgically place dental implants into your jawbone. The small titanium screws act as a prosthetic root structure and will naturally fuse with the jaw bone. The implants will take 2-4 months to fully heal and integrate with your jaw.

Once healed, Dr. Desbordes works with a local dental lab to custom design and fabricate your dental restoration. The dental crown, bridge, or denture will be permanently secured to your implants for a natural and beautiful smile. Your new tooth or teeth can be color-matched to seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth.

Implant-Secured Dentures

If you currently have a denture that is ill-fitted, or you often experience difficulty eating or slippage, Dr. Desbordes can help you secure your denture. Using carefully placed dental implants the denture can be permanently secured for better function. Implant-secured dentures can help patients improve their self-confidence, bite functionality, and oral health.

Dental Implant FAQs

When should I see a dentist about a missing tooth?

As soon as possible! The longer you wait, the more time the body has to direct minerals away from the area around the lost tooth. Soon, the jawbone tissue can break down, leading to a risk of further tooth loss. In addition, surrounding teeth may actually drift from their positions and cause misalignment to develop.

Do dental implants require special care?

You can maintain your teeth implants just like your natural teeth. Dr. Desbordes will require you to visit his office twice a year and brush and floss at least twice a day to keep your dental implants secure and healthy. Just like natural teeth, dental implants require healthy bone and gum tissue for long-term results.

How quickly can I get a dental implant?

After a thorough dental exam, Dr. Desbordes will help you determine the best missing tooth treatment option for your specific needs. We offer dental implants for one or several missing teeth. After surgery, the dental implant post typically requires 3 to 6 months to fully integrate with your jaw bone. After Dr. Desbordes fully integrates the ceramic crown, he will secure it.

The whole process can take up to 8 months.

How many years do dental implants last?

Implants are intended to be permanent. The crown attached to it may need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear in 10 to 15 years. But the dental implants themselves should last a lifetime as long as you visit your dentist every 6 months to one year for regular cleanings and maintenance. Dr. Desbordes has the experience, and he will perform your teeth implant procedure correctly the first time.

What is the success rate of teeth implants?

Teeth implants have about a 95% success rate. Your dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
