Implants

When replacing missing teeth, bridges, partials and dentures are a well-founded and dependable form of treatment. Implants do however have their advantages over these previous methods. They look and feel more like your own teeth, and require less maintenance.

Implants involve recent technology in which an implant is inserted directly into the jawbone to serve as an anchor. A custom-made crown is then attached to the implant filling the missing tooth’s space. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Due to the solid integration of implants into the jaw many patients find the secure fit more comfortable than the previous alternatives. Implants can be used under dentures for support retention as well, increasing chewing efficiency and eliminating the need for denture adhesive.

Implants are also valuable in retaining bone in the jaw. When you have a missing a tooth the bone around the area where the tooth should be begins to recede. An implant in this area actually helps prevent this from occurring and the jawbone stays healthier longer. Your facial structure remains full and natural instead of looking of shrunken. Your Omaha implant dentist Dr. Allen has done many of these cases successfully.
