We Can Help You With Dental Implants
Need Dental Implants?
At Fairview Dental Arts, when you need dental implants, our dentists and helpful staff can handle every aspect of your dental care conveniently in-house and we never have to send you off-site to another doctor. We offer dental implants to replace missing teeth with root and fixed tooth replacements to help you maintain a natural smile with full functionality.
Understanding Dental Implants
People are living longer and maintaining healthy dental habits that include regular dental cleanings and routine oral care. At times, though, a tooth or several teeth may develop disease or decay or may be injured accidentally. That's where a dental implant can help to restore the mouth and optimize your oral health.
A dental implant is a synthetic type of tooth root that is surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw. The root or post is made from titanium and can help to hold a replacement tooth in place. Whether the implant is permanent or removable may vary depending on the health of the patient and the nature of the teeth and gums.
Types of dental implants may include single tooth replacements for individual teeth, multiple tooth replacements for a row of teeth, complete denture supports, and full-mouth fixed rehabilitation. Full bridges and dentures can permanently help to give the patient a mouthful of teeth or a strategic number of implants.

Types of Dental Implant Treatments
Single Tooth Replacement
We can replace a missing tooth with an implant that will give your mouth a natural look. The implant can be fused directly to the bone to ensure functionality and use.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
To give you a complete smile, gaps in the mouth can be replaced with implants. This can help to give the patient a better look whether it's one tooth or several teeth throughout the mouth.
Complete Denture Support
To avoid removable dentures, a denture support can fill in missing teeth. The denture support is anchored to existing implants for increased stability. This is beneficial if the patient has lost all of their teeth on a full arch.
Full-mouth Fixed Rehabilitation
If you have lost soft tissue and bone, a transformative way to improve oral health is with a full-mouth fixed rehabilitation which can transform a weak mouth structure to one that is stronger.
Advantages of Dental Implants
A major advantage with implants is that they are stable in the mouth, while bridges and dentures are unstable and not fixed to the bone. Implants have a natural look and won't shift with talking or eating, allowing the patient a stronger bite. As they adhere to the jawbone, they won't put added stress on surrounding teeth. Implants can last a lifetime, while bridges may last for up to 10 years.
Care for implants should fall in line with routine oral care and should include daily brushing, flossing, and checkups. With regular and routine care, the implants can last longer and help the patient to feel more confident about their smile and appearance.
