We know you have options when it comes to replacing your missing teeth. But, if you consider the benefits you’ll receive with dental implants, you will discover you cannot experience the same functionality, longevity, and fully restored smile with any other tooth replacement solution.
Some of the additional benefits provided by dental implants include:
Looking to replace only one missing tooth? Maybe you have more than two that need replacing? No matter how many vacated sockets you have within your mouth, dental implants can be the solution for you.
All it takes is a single titanium implant post, a metal abutment, and a custom-made dental crown to replace a single missing tooth. There is no need to alter your healthy, natural teeth on either side of the socket like you would a fixed bridge. Instead, Dr. Ton will focus solely on the area in need of a new tooth. After surgical placement and recovery time, she will effectively place the implant, creating a healthier, fully restored smile.
There’s no need for a fixed bridge even if you’re missing two or more consecutive teeth. Instead, we can use two implant posts and metal abutment to create a solid, stable foundation that will hold your customized implant bridge. This unique prosthetic will look and feel just like your regular teeth, making it possible to chew, eat, and smile without worry or fear of it falling out.
If you require all your teeth to be replaced, Dr. Ton and her team can provide an implant-retained denture that is far greater than a traditional denture. Using between 4 and 6 implants, we can place them along your jawbone before securing your custom prosthetic into place. You’ll never have to worry about accidental slippage or messy dental adhesive when living with an implant-retained denture.

While it is true that they are more expensive than a fixed bridge or even full and partial dentures, their cost-effectiveness will have you seeing more money in your wallet over time.
Also, just because your neighbor paid a certain price for their implants doesn’t mean you’ll pay the same. In fact, various factors are considered when Dr. Ton creates a cost estimate, such as:
