Implant Dentistry

At Southpark Dental Group, our goal is to save teeth. Unfortunately not all teeth are savable. Since the incorporation of dental implants beginning in the 1970's, we have been able to offer a predictable single dental implant or multi-tooth replacement option with very high predicability. It is a dental treatment alternative to a conventional bridge, removable partial denture or complete denture.

Why is a dental implant the best way to treat many dental problems?

Crowns, bridges and dentures do nothing to stop bone loss, and crowns and bridges grind down healthy teeth, placing them at much greater risk for cavities and other problems. Dentures often become uncomfortable and Dental unstable as you age because the jawbone shrinks, which can cause problems eating and speaking. But with dental implants, healthy teeth are not ground down. Dental implants stimulate the jaw naturally to prevent bone loss in the same way that natural teeth do.

Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They bond with healthy bone and provide permanent support for dental crowns and dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and can last a lifetime.

A dental implant is a titanium "root" replacement used in dentistry to support dental restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth, replacing missing teeth. Dental implants have many uses including the ability to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns (caps), dental implant supported bridges or dentures. Many people have dentures that require adhesive to secure them. Dental implants are a wonderful alternative and can provide a dramatic improvement in your quality of life.

Dental implants are the best alternative to damage causing bridges and crowns, while also allowing denture wearers more comfort and freedom. We can use dental implants in a variety of ways:
