You care for your implants just like you care for your natural teeth — with daily brushing and flossing and regular checkups with Dr. Larson.
Dental implants are custom-made to match the shape, size, and color 0f your teeth, so they blend right in with your smile. No one else will ever know they’re not your natural teeth.
Healthy gums are crucial to the success of your dental implants, so patients with gum disease won’t be able to immediately qualify for the procedure. Thankfully, our dentists offer a variety of treatments to eliminate gum disease and restore the health of your smile.
Once your gums are free of bacteria, we can move forward with the treatment and place your implants.
In most cases, yes! Lots of patients ask if they can upgrade from dentures to dental implants. During your initial consultation, one of our dentists will examine your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine if you’re an immediate candidate for the procedure. If you’ve suffered from bone loss in your jaw or if you have gum disease, we can prepare you for implant placement with a supplemental procedure.
If you want the best of both worlds, we can also provide implant-supported dentures. This restoration offers the convenience of dentures along with the stability and long-term health benefits of dental implants.
