Dental Implants

Are missing teeth taking the joy out of the everyday things you love, like eating your favorite foods and smiling with confidence? Or maybe you’re just tired of dealing with uncomfortable dentures and the slipping, clicking, and messy adhesives that come with them.

Replicating the function and appearance of natural teeth can be difficult, but dental implants are completely changing the way dentists and patients think about restorative dentistry. Whether you need to replace just one tooth or an entire arch, implants are the closest you’ll get to the real thing!

A dental implant is a small titanium post that serves as the replacement for the root portion of your missing natural tooth. Brookings dentist Dr. Brice Chang surgically places the implant into your upper or lower jaw, where it will naturally fuse with your bone to become a solid anchor for a crown, bridge, or denture. You can even brush and floss your implants just like you do your natural teeth!

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are smaller than conventional implants, which makes them an excellent way to stabilize loose dentures that slip or click. Dr. Chang can often place mini implants in one visit to our Brookings dental office, so you’ll be eating your favorite foods again in no time!

More Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Because of their natural appearance and improved function, implants are the preferred method of replacing missing teeth.
  • Dental implants support the lips and cheeks, which helps to preserve the shape of your face and jaw after tooth loss.
  • Healthy, well-maintained dental implants can last for years.

Itís never too late to have the strong and confident smile youíve always wanted! With natural-looking dental implants, you can replace your missing teeth at any age. Call Brookings Dental Arts today to schedule your dental implant consultation with Dr. Chang.

Bone Grafting for Dental Implants

When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone has a tendency to shrink and soften. The gum tissue can also recede around the space because there is no longer anything there to support it.

It's important to Dr. Chang that your dental implants fuse quickly and securely to your jawbone, so if he notices any of the above during your exam, he might suggest a bone graft to strengthen your bone in preparation for the implant procedure. Dr. Chang will work closely with your physician throughout the entire process, from the initial consultation to the big reveal of your beautiful new smile.
