Dental implants can be described as artificial “tooth roots” that support a dental restoration for a tooth (or teeth) that are missing, while also helping prevent jaw bone loss. Often those of us with lost teeth feel self-conscious to talk or smile, and some even experience negative effects on eating practices, creating secondary nutrition issues.
Replacing missing tooth roots with dental implants enables people with the ability to eat and enjoy the foods they love, without the struggle chewing otherwise can be. The additional benefit is dental implants are helpful in stimulating and maintaining jaw bone, reducing and even preventing bone loss, and helping to uphold facial features.
Teeth are commonly lost due to:
To determine if dental implants are right for you we will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to assess bone density and quantity. This often includes X-rays and CT scans (computer tomography) to verify sufficient bone structure is in place for placing the dental implant(s), and where precisely the dental implants should be placed.
Based on the findings of our comprehensive oral assessment we will brief you on the most appropriate treatment plan. Be mindful people that lack a sufficient amount of bone or gum tissue may need to have bone or soft tissue grafts and/or possibly the application of small diameter dental implants sometimes referred to as “mini implants”. We’ll go over the time length of the treatment process, the number of appointments necessary, and what you can expect, the outcome after each procedure.
Any pre-existing oral health matters should first be resolved prior to implantation being considered. Gum disease, tooth decay, and other issues can make treatment less effective. Also and for example, for those who smoke it’s a good idea to quit. as smokers face a higher risk of failure of the dental implant process than non-smokers. Smoking can affect something called “osseointegration”, which is how a dental implant anchors itself to the jaw bone.
An osseointegrated implant needs anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 months to properly anchor and heal. Once heeled, we can complete the process and place a crown, bridge or hybrid denture restoration to the anchor. Our
consultation will include everything you will need to know to ensure a successful dental implantation outcome.
When it comes to the different types of dental implants some may refer to the material, the coating, positioning, brands or the overall process. In this explanation, we will go over each of those differences so that you may have a better understanding in your overall options. It’s good to be prepared!
At Dental Laser, we use two different brands of dental implants. Straumann and Hiossen. We believe our patients should have options when choosing what works best for them. For this reason we offer Straumann as our highest quality option and Hiossen for those looking to save some money while still receiving an incredibly high quality implant. No matter which one you choose, you will still be selecting one of the top brands the world has to offer. Continue reading to explore the differences in both brands.

This means that there will always be an implant that will suit your needs.
This implant positioning method is the most common because it’s inserted directly into the jawbone. In order for this to be a successful procedure, the implant must enter an area with a good amount of bone, so people with poor bone composition would need a graft before moving forward.
