Fearless Implant Dentistry… It’s Achieved Every Day Here!

Our Advanced 4 Implant All On Technique options allow many patients to have a new set of permanent teeth while you sleep with General Anesthesia, or Non-IV Oral Sedation Dentistry. You’re simply required to have someone drive you, stay during your visit, escort you home and have a caretaker you trust to stay with you for a minimum of 8 to 24 hours depending on the option you choose. We will go over these options in detail with you at your initial implant visit so you can make a decision with confidence.

Who should consider or is a candidate for dental implants or reconstructive dentistry?

  • People with several failing or missing teeth.
  • People who are in need of multiple dental implants.
  • People who wear dentures.
  • People with broken, damaged, dark and diseased natural teeth.

What is the difference in Conventional Dentures and Implant Supported Dentures?

A full set of dentures allows for about 10% of chewing capacity compared to a full set of natural teeth. This means a softer diet which may eliminate some of the foods that you are accustomed to eating.

With Implant Supported Dentures you can regain your self-confidence and 70-90% of your chewing ability. Eat the foods you once enjoyed.

Adhesive Hassle Of Dentures Are Eliminated With Implant Supported Dentures

The adhesives to keep the dentures in place are also a hassle to manage and not 100% effective. It’s no wonder denture wearers are extremely self-conscious and reluctant to socialize. Without natural or artificial tooth roots, your jaw will begin to shrink due to bone loss. This will cause your dentures to become ill fitting and slick making it difficult and painful to eat.

Over time a shrinking jaw bone ultimately changes the shape of your face. Your mouth and jaw will appear to collapse. Your lips will seem thinner. And your skin will begin to wrinkle especially in the areas around your mouth and neck. Without an adequate amount of bone, it will be difficult to wear dentures and eventually even dental implants might not be a viable option.

When placed early enough, dental implants can help prevent jawbone loss and help preserve facial contours.

Can dental implants improve eating and speech?

Missing and/or poorly-aligned teeth can cause problems with chewing which can lead to digestive problems. A bad bite can irritate exposed gum tissue and can cause grinding and possibly crack or break teeth. It can also cause jaw pain.

Missing teeth may cause the speaker to whistle a bit with the force of air coming out of the mouth during speech. The speaker may unconsciously use the tongue to minimize the whistle, which will cause affected speech.

What are my reconstructive dentistry treatment options?

At Pineview Family Dental, we’re experienced with implants for a single tooth replacement up to an entire set of teeth. We offer great options for patients who need only minor dental reconstruction and to people who currently wear dentures but are looking for a stronger, more aesthetically pleasing solution.

Having a full set of implants has tremendous advantages over more traditional dentures:

  • Implants have the stability and strength of natural teeth
  • Implants help protect natural bone from deterioration caused by missing teeth
  • Eat the foods you love without the fear of dentures slipping
  • Implants are as easy to care for as natural teeth
  • Speech improvements – unlike dentures which can slip during speech, dental implants feel and function like your naturally anchored teeth while talking

For those patients who need to replace all their teeth, Pineview Family Dental offers a treatment option which provides a patient with a full set of replaced teeth using only four implants and can often be completed in a single office visit.

How can I best plan for the dental implant treatment process?

  • The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone
  • Over time, the jawbone grows around the implant, holding it firmly in place
  • Once the implant is in place a unique tooth is fashioned upon it to blend – in size, shape and color – with surrounding teeth

Planning A Course Of Treatment

Before any surgery takes place a comprehensive patient evaluation, pre-operative diagnostics including X-rays and therapy planning are required. The procedure is not recommended for children as the jawbone may not have completed its full growth in youngsters.

An irregular jawbone shape, hard tissue growths or previous reconstructive work may complicate the procedure and must be taken into consideration. The doctor will also evaluate any patient risks to the post-surgery healing process such as diabetes, cigarette smoking or infections in the neighboring tissues.
