What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots implanted into your jaw. They are usually made of titanium or titanium alloys and are durable and long-lasting. Once placed, the implants fuse with your jawbone to create a stable structure that can support permanent replacement teeth. Dental implants provide a solid base for a range of dental restorations that can beautify and repair your smile.

Our Implant Services
Dental implants may be suitable if you have one or more missing teeth and are searching to restore your smile. We consider several key factors before we begin the implant process. If you are currently suffering from active gum disease, it must be addressed before the dental implants are placed. We also discuss your relevant medical history and current medications to help us create the safest and most effective treatment plan.
Our office can place your implants using precise digital imagery and x-rays. Dr. Erhard will map out where your implants should go for the highest chance of long-term success. The implants will be surgically placed and allowed to heal and bond fully with your jawbone. After the healing period has ended, your implants will support dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Whenever possible, we preserve your natural teeth and dental structure. However, sometimes it’s necessary for your overall health to remove decayed or damaged teeth. Dr. Erhard and his team can provide gentle extractions when needed, as well as a variety of options to replace the tooth. We recommend dental implants because they fully restore your teeth from root to crown.
What is a Bone Graft?
Having enough healthy jawbone to support the implants is essential. If there isn’t enough healthy bone, the implant won’t successfully bond into place and can become unstable. If your jawbone is thin or weak, you may be a bone graft candidate. This dental procedure increases your jawbone’s volume and density so that your dental implants have enough material to fuse to.
Dr. Erhard will transplant a small amount of bone to your upper or lower jaw to strengthen the areas that have suffered the most deterioration. Our team will discuss this procedure in-depth with you to make sure you feel confident about your treatment.
Dentures to Create a Full Smile
Your new dental implants can support many dental restorations to reinvent your smile. If you are missing several teeth or even a full arch, you may consider partial or full dentures. Our practice provides you with comfortable custom dentures in a single appointment.
Partial Dentures: We use partial dentures when you have natural teeth remaining in you jaw. Your dental implants create a stable foundation that keeps your dentures firmly fixed in place. The partial dentures are structured around your healthy teeth to prevent them from shifting and to fill the gaps in your smile. You will have a smile that looks and feels as natural as possible.
Full Dentures: Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth if you have no teeth left in your upper or lower jaw, or the teeth you have must be removed due to severe damage or decay. The replacement teeth are permanently installed upon a set of dental implants, which will give you a functional set of teeth again.
Mini Dental Implants for Convenience
Mini dental implants are smaller, thinner, and shorter than traditional dental implants. They are frequently used to stabilize permanent dentures. In contrast to standard implants, mini dental implants need less bone density to bond with your jaw. Since they are less bulky, they do not need as much material to keep them stable and in the correct position over time.
Suppose you lack the jawbone to receive dental implants and are not a candidate for bone grafts. In that case, mini dental implants may allow you to receive the restoration you need.
Implant Crowns to Replace a Missing Tooth
A dental implant crown replaces a missing tooth by attaching to your implant. The crown is held in place by an abutment. Your implant crown is carefully crafted at a trusted dental lab to fit your smile. Implant crowns not only restore the fullness of your smile, but they also offer oral health benefits.
Bridges to Restore Missing Teeth
Dental bridges allow you to replace several missing teeth and restore significant gaps in your smile. If you are missing multiple teeth in a row, dental implants can serve as anchors to support a bridge of replacement teeth. The implants will hold the bridge in place, and the bridge fills the gap and keeps your teeth from shifting. Our local dental lab sculpts your replacement teeth to match your natural smile.
