Whether you’re missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, the reason behind their loss is usually quite similar. Gum disease, damage, trauma, tooth decay, and medication side effects. They are all of the common causes of tooth loss. Unfortunately, when teeth go missing it’s not uncommon to want to hide your smile, alter your diet, and experience difficulty speaking or properly pronouncing words.

What Exactly Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an amazing invention that replace your tooth and its roots, mimicking your natural tooth structure. They consist of metal posts that are surgically implanted into your jawbone to replace your tooth’s roots. Once placed, the titanium rods integrate with your bone, providing a stable, secure base for your replacement tooth, bridge, partial, or denture.
The tooth portion that is attached to the implant post consists of either a ceramic tooth that looks and feels just like a real tooth or a partial or denture that attaches to the implant posts and stays there.

Capstone Dental Tooth Implant Options
Since we never offer one-size-fits-all treatment options, we have a variety of dental implant choices. We are sure to find one that perfectly suits your needs. Our options include:
Mini-Implants – So small, so precise, these implants do not require cutting or suturing, but are placed through a tiny channel into the bone. These are perfect for those who may not have enough bone structure for traditional implants.
Implant-Retained Dentures – These dentures are incredibly different from traditional dentures because they are held securely in place by the implant posts. Because of this, they don’t slip, come loose, or cover the roof of your mouth.
All-on-4 – This innovative technique lets you start enjoying your new teeth soon after implant post placement. You’ll enjoy a permanent set of dentures that require no extra cleaning other than regular brushing and flossing. They function and appear like your natural teeth, and are designed to last a lifetime.
