Have you or a loved one ever needed to have a tooth extracted? If so, did you ever consider what you would do to refill the space where your tooth once was? For years, people believed the only way to replace teeth was with dentures once all your teeth fell out. What was someone to do if they had a single tooth come out? And what was someone to do if they found dentures to be uncomfortable? One of the most effective ways of restoring your smile is by obtaining dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
In its simplest terms, a dental implant is a permanent prosthetic replacement for missing teeth. In the year 2022, more and more people are looking into dental implants as an option with their dental providers. The introduction of dental implants to replace missing teeth is a practice that has completely revolutionized the field of dentistry, especially for patients who may not feel comfortable with dentures, bridges, or any other dental replacement.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
One of the most notable benefits of dental implants is their ability to get patients back to feeling confident about their smiles. Oftentimes patients who struggle with dental problems suffer from low self-esteem and are looking for a way to help themselves. Dental implants are an excellent solution for them. In fact, with proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime.
Aside from aesthetics, there are also medical benefits to getting a dental implant. Dental implants can help prevent bone loss in both the upper and lower jaw. The presence of an implant can help to add structure and save adjacent teeth.
Implants are easy to maintain as well, only requiring the need to brush and floss the area. No extensive cleaning care products are needed that may be required if you were to choose dentures instead.
Why Choose The Implant Center?
Multiple restorative implant services are offered at the Implant Center by St Luke’s OMS, such as All-on-4, trefoil, and traditional endosteal implants. The Implant Center prides itself in being the only provider in the region to have a YOMI surgical robot. This new technology does not replace the surgeon’s role but ensures more efficiency in surgery. The YOMI robot is a state-of-the-art robotic technology that will assist in guided implant surgery. With this new surgical tool, greater accuracy and improved surgical and restorative outcomes are to be expected as a result.
In addition to implant placement, The Implant Center by St Luke’s OMS is also proud to offer aesthetic services, specifically Hydrafacial treatments. Hydrafacial treatment is a noninvasive skin resurfacing treatment that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection that remove dead skin cells and impurities while simultaneously delivering moisturizing serums into the skin. In contrast to treatment like microdermabrasion, Hydrafacial is a much gentler approach that offers quicker results. The Hydrafacial wand vacuums out the pores while infusing moisturizing serum, leaving a patient feeling soothed and refreshed. The Implant Center by St Luke’s OMS is now open and seeing patients. We are proud to be your choice in oral surgery.
