Dental Implants

What are dental implants and what is dental implant surgery? Dental implants are restorative measures utilized in order to help an individual improve the appearance of one’s smile. Dr. Fluegge has been trained, educated, and certified in the treatment of the gums, gum disease, periodontal disease and implantology.

Dental implants are replacements for natural tooth roots; a dental implant is solidly attached into the jawbone. Later, a crown is placed over the implanted artificial root, and the dental implant will then look exactly like your natural tooth. Dental implants are frequently used as anchors for partial as well as full dental appliances and dentures. Dental implants are made of highly pure titanium which offers the patient no allergic reaction or health hazards.

Dental Implant Advantages

There are many advantages that a patient derives from choosing to have dental implant surgery:
  • If a patient is looking for the most natural appearance possible, dental implant surgery and the insertion of dental implants looks incredibly natural.
  • Dental implants are incredibly stable and are excellent for speaking, eating, and smiling.
  • Dental implants are one option of tooth replacement that actually helps to preserve the jawbone health.
  • Dental implants can help maintain the natural shape of a patient’s face. Facial features are either restored or remain unaltered after successful dental implant surgery.
  • Dental implants feel like natural teeth.
  • Chewing becomes more natural with dental implants, particularly when compared to other appliances.
