Dental implants are titanium rods that function as artificial tooth roots. They are inserted into the bone to support crowns, bridges, or dentures, providing your mouth with a secure structural framework for a beautiful smile. As among the most sustainable, durable options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants represent the gold standard of oral care and cosmetic enhancement.

Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Thanks to ongoing advances in dental technology, most guests can now successfully undergo treatment with dental implants, even if they have suffered heavy bone loss or are dealing with active health problems such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or upper respiratory problems. The only people who are not typically candidates for dental implants are younger guests whose jaws have not yet fully formed. Our team will conduct a thorough evaluation and oral exam during your private consultation and can assess your candidacy more precisely at that time.

Our dental implant services
At Admira Dentistry, we provide the full range of dental implant services, placing the highest-quality devices that best support your state-of-the-art restorations. We provide the following treatment options for guests who are struggling with the ill effects of missing teeth:
This option supports replacement for a single missing tooth. The titanium rod is inserted into the bone to function as a new tooth root. A crown can then be attached over the post.
Multiple tooth dental implants can replace teeth without the need for adjacent tooth support. This differs from other options, such as fixed bridges or partial dentures.
Bone grafting addresses the problem of bone loss, which can compromise the facial contours. The procedure helps restore the jaw after tooth loss, making it possible to place dental implants.
Implant bridges are a combination of dental implants inserted into the bone and porcelain restorations that mimic natural teeth. These devices help preserve the shape of the smile by keeping the bone secure.
As a halfway point between full dentures and full-arch implants, implant-supported dentures are an excellent solution for those seeking smile enhancement matched with improved oral function.
Tooth extractions and wisdom teeth
Tooth extraction can be performed under local, general, IV anesthesia, or a combination of these options. Removing teeth that have already surfaced is a simple procedure, while removing impacted wisdom teeth, for instance, will require a more in-depth approach.
