Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news!  Dental Implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own.  Are you missing one or more of your natural teeth?  Dental Implants are the most advanced tooth replacement system ever devised.  Dental Impants look and function like natural teeth.  Dental Implants never develop decay and never require root canals.  Dental Implants can completely eliminate the need for a denture.  Mini Dental Implants can often be completed in one visit.

A Dental Implant is an artifical tooth root that Dr. Nelson places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.  Dental Implants are an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, and injury, or some other reason.

While high-tech in nature, Dental Implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.  Whether it is to replace a single tooth, or to create a full mouth of secure permanent new teeth, dental implants are a proven, long lasting alternative to bridges and dentures.

Dental Implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.  You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally.  Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth.  Maybe your dentures don't feel secure.  Perhaps you have difficulty chewing.  Under proper conditions, with diligent patient maintenance, Dental Implants can last a lifetime.  The procedure is painless.  Read comments and testimonials from our patients who have received multiple Dental Implants from Dr. Nelson.

Dr. Nelson is a doctor of dental surgery and has post-graduate advanced education and training in placing Dental Implants.  He has placed  countless numbers of Dental Implants.  The best way to determine whether you are candidate for Dental Implants is to come in for a consultation. Dr. Nelson will also likely take an x-ray to evaluate if there is enough bone to support the implant restoration.  Sometimes you will need to get a CAT scan for multiple Dental Implants. If the amount of bone is questionable Dr. Nelson will recommend placing a bone graft for additional support.
