Improving Smiles with Dental Implants in Albuquerque
Missing teeth can impact your personal goals and damage your oral health. Dr. Boehmer understands the importance of a complete smile, so she often suggests dental implants for patients who have lost teeth. Dental implants are superior to other restorative solutions because they are solid, secure, and esthetic. Designed to function like your natural teeth, dental implants will rejuvenate your smile, confidence, and quality of life.
Dental Implant Treatment Options
Dental implants are made of surgical grade titanium, manufactured to highly precise specifications, under strict sterile conditions. When restoring a missing tooth, the implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Over time, as the bone and the implant bond, they form a strong, secure foundation onto which a custom-made restoration can be attached. How many implants you receive will depend on the number of teeth we’re replacing. With dental implants, Dr. Boehmer can help you replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a full row of teeth.
Dental Implant Advantages:
- Durable design and materials
- Long-lasting results
- Natural-looking prosthetics
- Permanent solution
Dental Implant Procedures
During the dental implant procedure, a trained specialist will position a small titanium screw into your jaw. This acts as a false tooth root. Once your mouth heals and bone fuses with the biocompatible post, Dr. Boehmer will attach a lifelike prosthetic dental crown or dentures.
Implant-retained dentures literally change lives. Denture patients often have to put up with a slipping, loose fit and bad breath. Dr. Boehmer will work with our lab to retrofit your denture with implant snaps, or she may recommend a new denture specifically designed to attach to your implants. With a secure set of dentures, you'll feel young and beautiful! You can eat what you like, talk and laugh confidently, and enjoy life without worrying about your teeth. What's more, after nearly 35 years of use, they have a 90-90% proven success rate in appropriately chosen cases.
However, not everyone is suited for dental implants. Sufficient bone density and good oral health are prerequisites for surgery. If it's in your best interest, Dr. Boehmer will suggest crown-and-bridgework as an alternative. At your consultation, she'll help you determine the best path to achieve optimal results.
