Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

Dental Implants & Restorations in AlbuquerqueDental implants are one of the most successful and permanent forms of dentistry, making it an excellent, long-lasting, and strong option to replace one tooth or several teeth. Implants free you from the concerns typically associated with dentures, such as shifting, poor fit (causing pain), and food restrictions. Dental implants are natural-looking replacement teeth that are fixed in the jaw. Implant treatment provides an option to correct the most troublesome cases associated with missing teeth and ill-fitting dentures. Although treatment costs more than traditional restorations, many patients consider implants a worthwhile and lasting investment. 

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants are an option for patients who have one or more missing teeth, cannot chew or smile comfortably, or are unhappy with dentures. Candidates for dental implants must be in overall good health and have enough bone to support the implant. Patients must follow excellent oral hygiene, which includes brushing, flossing and regular dental examinations. Patients with a high risk of developing periodontal or gum disease, such as smokers and diabetics, may not be good candidates for dental implants. Dr. Haight will review your oral health and take digital 3D x-ray to determine your eligibility.

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?

  • Enhanced Esthetics – your confidence will soar with no more gapped smiles or ill-fitting dentures
  • Reduction of bone loss – implants prevent bone loss that causes the sunken jaw look
  • Preservation of adjacent teeth – without adjacent teeth to hold them in place, teeth will move and tip forward causing a loss in chewing function
  • Easier eating – implants are as strong as natural teeth and allow you to eat steak, apples and even corn on the cob!

Which Dental Implants does Parkway Dental use?

After extensive research, Dr. Haight has chosen to use Ossotanium Implants. Ossotanium Implants were developed at Los Alamos National Labs and are technologically advanced – 100% titanium implants. Many implant companies will mix titanium with aluminum or vanadium but with health concerns of using aluminum in the body, Dr. Haight is proud to offer his patients a pure titanium product.

Dental Implant Procedure

Once it is determined that you are a candidate for implants, Dr. Haight and his staff will walk you through each step so you know what to expect. The extraction is the first step. Once the site is prepared, Dr. Haight will insert an Ossotanium Biotanium™ post into your jawbone. As the bone grows and adheres to the post, it creates a secure and solid foundation for the attachment of a crown that is custom designed just for you. Implants are sometimes used to maintain the integrity of teeth on either side of a gap when a bridge is not the best option.

Dental Implant Results

Dental Implant success rates are 97%! Patients receive all the benefits of natural teeth with their dental implants. It is important to continue good oral hygiene with the implants to prevent bacteria buildup, which can cause gum disease or bone loss.
