oral checkupReplace what’s been lost with dental implants at Thornton Dental. Dental implants offer a lasting solution that is surgically inserted into the jawbone for replacing lost teeth whether due to accidents, dental issues, or aging.

If you need new teeth, we are happy to provide you with the practical support that leads you back to a complete set of pearly whites.


Making the Most of Your Smile and Your Implant

Made of titanium, dental implants are ideal for patients who come into our clinic ready to completely restore their smile. With excellent natural aesthetics and a durable, long-lasting effect, implants promote proper facial structure, making you look younger than you would without them.

In addition to replacing a missing tooth or set of teeth, implants can be used to stabilise or support adjunctive dental services like ​​dentures, crowns and bridges. Implants can enhance the effectiveness of these removable prosthetic devices by acting as a sturdy foundation that can have something like dentures attached to it.


Types of Cosmetic Dental Implants

  1. Single Dental Implants: When a patient has a single missing tooth, a single cosmetic dental implant is the preferred solution. This involves a two-part process: first, a titanium post is surgically inserted into the gum to serve as the new root, providing essential support and strength. Subsequently, a crown or denture is affixed onto the post to seamlessly replace the missing tooth.
  2. Full Dental Implants (All On Implants™): In cases of extensive decay or significant tooth loss, traditional dental implants may not suffice. The All on Implants™ approach offers a permanent solution, serving as an alternative to traditional dentures. This innovative technique involves securing a complete set of prosthetic teeth onto four dental posts, providing comprehensive support and functionality.
  3. Multiple Dental Implants: Similar to single dental implants, multiple dental implants are utilized when several teeth are missing. This process involves the placement of multiple implants to replace the missing teeth. While more extensive, this approach ensures comprehensive restoration of dental function and aesthetics.

Candidates for single or multiple implants must have healthy gums, jawbones, and oral hygiene practices. These implants are suitable for individuals missing one or more teeth between healthy natural teeth.


Advantages of Dental Implants


Enhanced Stability

By anchoring firmly into the jawbone, dental implants offer unparalleled stability and durability. Say goodbye to concerns about your new teeth dislodging while enjoying hard foods or engaging in daily activities.

Cost Efficiency

Despite the initial investment, dental implants prove to be cost-effective in the long run. Their exceptional durability eliminates the need for frequent replacements, saving you from ongoing upkeep expenses. In the realm of dental care, long-term reliability triumphs over short-term costs.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Dental implants boast a natural appearance that seamlessly blends with your existing teeth. During the planning phase, we meticulously match the color of your implants to your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless integration that goes unnoticed by others. Moreover, dental implants not only enhance your smile’s aesthetics but also bolster your confidence in communication and daily activities.

The Surgery Process

The dental implant procedure typically takes a few vital steps, starting with an assessment and measurement of your jawbone depth. We then prepare you for the implant surgery, which usually happens on the same day.

Our clinic does not sedate you during the procedure, but we have other methods, as needed, to help make it not too uncomfortable.

The full recovery period is about 3 to 6 months. While this may seem like a long time, implants can last your entire life as long as you keep up with regular cleaning and dental appointments. We give you plenty of information to help you achieve a healthy post-surgery healing process.
