Dental implants are the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. There are no other treatments that can recreate the appearance and function of a single, missing tooth the way a dental implant does.
Huffman Family Dentistry provides minimally-invasive dental implant services that utilize state of the art laser technology. Whereas traditional dental implant treatment involves surgical procedures that make recovery uncomfortable and lengthy, laser technology benefits our patients through:
- Extremely precise placement
- Shortened recovery time
- Painless second stage surgery
- Stimulating bone regeneration
- No noisy drills
- No anesthesia required
- Cauterization reduces risk of infection
- No stitches
Recovery after the treatment is so fast that the next day, most of our patients feel perfectly fine. In fact, our dental implant patients tell us that the entire procedure is easier and more comfortable than having a crown preparation treatment.
The dental implants process starts with a titanium implant root being placed into the missing tooth’s socket, allotting 3-4 months for osseointegration with your bone. Because titanium is highly biocompatible, bone naturally forms and fuses to it and holds it in place similarly to a natural tooth. After full bone integration has occurred, a permanent porcelain crown is placed on top of the implant root. Your finished implant looks and functions just like your natural teeth.
Implants can also be used to support multiple tooth dental bridges, as well as dentures. If you’re considering minimally-invasive laser dental implants, we invite you to call Huffman Family Dentistry for a free consultation appointment.
