Dental Implants

Regain confidence with dental implants from Hebron Smiles.

Tooth loss affects everything from your appearance to the way you speak and chew. At Hebron Smiles, we believe that our patients deserve to feel comfortable and confident. Dr. Saleem and our experienced staff go to great lengths to make sure you have the options you need to restore functionality and natural beauty if you have lost a tooth or required an extraction.

Dental implants have been a wonderful development in restorative dentistry, leading to the greatest possible success for patients who need to replace a single tooth as well as those who want to replace an uncomfortable denture.

These tiny root replacements are made from medical grade titanium, the same material used in hip and knee replacements. Placed by our experienced in house implant surgeon in collaboration with Dr. Saleem’s treatment plan, implants will heal into the bone structure that once held natural roots. After full integration into the jawbone, implant restorations feel so much like natural teeth that most patients forget about them. Once implants have become fully stabilized in bone, Dr. Saleem restores the smile with a lifelike crown, bridge, or a denture that affixes to implant posts.

The traditional way of replacing missing teeth has been to restore tooth structure that has been lost. For some time, dentures and bridges had been the gold standard of care. Implants have changed the way we address tooth loss, and have made an enormous difference in the outcome of care. We are proud to provide you with the treatment you need to have the healthy, functional smile you deserve.

Patients consider implants for a number of reasons. One of the primary advantages is that replacement roots can provide a lifetime of stability that allows chewing, smiling, and speaking with full confidence. The versatility of implants makes this treatment suitable for a variety of situations, ranging from singular tooth replacement to full mouth reconstruction. Because replacement teeth are anchored in the jawbone, there is no risk of a restoration slipping or falling out.

What are implants made of?

Dental implants are made of titanium. The same material which we use in knees and hip areas is an inert biological material.

What are the options for missing teeth?

You can have a removable partial denture, which is commonly known as a flipper or a plate.

The second option is commonly known as a bridge where we have to shape up the adjacent teeth, which act as anchors, and then we connect them to make a three-unit piece that is cemented.

The third option is the implant, which is wonderful because you are just replacing the tooth with a tooth replacement implant.

Who is a good candidate?

Ideally, the healthier and younger you are it is better, but there is no age limit. Very few people have rejections or contraindications with implants.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

If you take care of the implants, they can last a long time. Another advantage is that those teeth look like normal healthy teeth.

You can floss, chew, smile, and nobody notices that you have a fake tooth or not.

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
