Dental Implants

Having implants placed to help hold a denture or partial can be truly life changing! No longer would you have to worry about them slipping or falling out of your mouth accidentally. Implants snap into your dentures and make it much more comfortable to eat all of your favorite food again! If you are tired of taking your dentures out at night, there is even an option of making your dentures a permanent part of your smile, no more taking them in an out! If you are considering adding implants to help with your loose dentures, contact the dental team at Southside Dental Center right away!

Implants look and feel like regular teeth, and you care for them like regular teeth too! Proper brushing and flossing will keep the implant clean and healthy for a long time. The team at Southside Dental Center will always take the time to show you the proper way to care for your implant and make sure all of your questions are answered.

Once the tooth is out, the process of getting an implant can be completed in as little as a few months, although the average is about 6 months to allow for proper bone healing. Each case is different, and the staff at Southside Dental Center have the training and expertise to explain the best treatment timeline for your case. If you are interested in replacing teeth with implants, please contact us today!

The decision between a dental implant and a traditional bridge to replace a missing tooth can be a tough one. The strength of the surrounding teeth, amount of bone and several other factors all come into play when you are deciding. Although the decision ultimately comes down to your choice, the team at Southside Dental Center are happy to sit down with you and discuss all of the pros and cons of each option. If you are looking to replacing a missing tooth, make sure to schedule a time with the team at Southside Dental Center today to discuss all of your options.

It can be very difficult to deal with missing teeth. Chewing is tougher, smiling can be embarrassing and even talking will be different. Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace almost any missing teeth in the mouth. Unlike partials or dentures, they never come out. Unlike traditional bridges, no cutting is needed to the surrounding teeth. Implants are a long lasting option that will allow you to smile, chew and talk like normal again! If you have any questions about dental implants and your tooth replacement options, please schedule a consult with the team at Southside Dental Center today!

No! The best part of having dental implants is how naturally they replace your missing teeth. Once completed, you brush, floss and eat normally with your implant. No one will be able to tell the difference between the replaced tooth and your natural teeth! If you are interested in replacing a missing tooth with dental implants, call today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Abramowski!

There are a variety of factors that come into play when considering options for tooth replacement. Everyone has unique needs, and you can be confident that we’ll help you find the solution that fits your oral health needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Dental implants have become the preferred method for replacing teeth for a number of reasons. Unlike bridges or dentures that simply fill the empty space, dental implants actually become part of your jaw structure. When the dental implant process is finished, you will be left with a fully functioning tooth replacement complete with an artificial root and natural-looking dental restoration.

However, dental implants aren’t right for everyone. If this is the case, we can create a durable fixed bridge that will fill the empty space and restore function. If you’re missing a few or all of your teeth, we can discuss the possibility of full or partial dentures. Many denture wearers complain about movement of their dentures. If this is a concern for you, we also have the option of adding some implants to hold your denture securely in place.

The best way to find out what tooth replacement choice is right for you is to call our office and make an appointment for a consultation. There’s a lot to consider, and Dr. Abramowski will take the time to answer your questions and discuss all your options.
