Dental implants are specially designed to look and function just like natural teeth. While other tooth replacement options rest on top of the gums, dental implants replace the whole tooth from the root to the crown, creating a permanent, secure hold. Your dental implants will look just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, they can last a lifetime. Dental professionals and patients agree that dental implants are the best tooth replacement option available today; most patients find that their implants feel just like their natural teeth.
Dental implants offer many benefits over traditional tooth replacement options. The dental implant integrates with the jaw bone, preventing bone loss. The top of the implant consists of a tooth-shaped crown that is custom designed to look just like your natural tooth. Patients can enjoy eating, speaking, and smiling with confidence knowing that their permanent dental implants will never slip or fall out. Contact our office to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants.
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last set of adult teeth to grow in the mouth. Wisdom teeth can start to develop as early as age 12, and they finish growing in around the late teen years. Most people have four wisdom teeth, but some people may have fewer, or in rare cases, more than four. Unfortunately, most peoples’ jaws are too small to accommodate four extra molars; consequently, the wisdom teeth can damage adjacent teeth or become trapped beneath the gums when there is not adequate space for them to erupt.
Not everyone will need to have their wisdom teeth extracted, but it is important to have wisdom teeth examined by a professional to determine whether or not they pose a threat to your oral health. Leaving wisdom teeth untreated can lead to pain, infections, impacted teeth, and tooth damage, which is irreparable in some cases. Our oral surgeons have years of experience removing wisdom teeth. Whether your teeth are still developing beneath the gums or fully grown in, our oral surgeons can perform an examination to determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed.
A full-arch restoration is an excellent alternative to dentures for patients who want to replace many missing teeth permanently. Thanks to advances in dental implant technology, restoring your smile using a full-arch replacement can prevent bone loss and preserve your facial structure. The procedure is incredibly efficient, using only four dental implants to secure a permanent upper or lower denture.
The surgeons at Siouxland Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery can perform an oral exam to determine whether you are a candidate for a full-arch restoration. Typically, patients who decide to undergo the procedure gain improved ability to eat and speak, more self-confidence in their smile, and a healthier mouth overall.
