High-quality dental implants, along with their attached replacement teeth, look, feel, and function just like natural teeth and are the strongest, most lifelike, and longest-lasting option for tooth replacement.

Replacing a tooth with an implant

For a broken-down tooth that must be extracted or a single tooth that is already missing, our dentist can expertly place a dental implant and a top-quality dental crown in most cases. As a result of recent technical advances in the art of implant dentistry, most people with a damaged tooth that must be extracted, or a missing tooth, are now excellent candidates for a dental implant.

Dental implants vs. dental bridges

An implant-supported crown has many advantages over a traditional dental bridge. Conventional dental bridges require grinding down the adjacent, typically healthy, teeth and covering them with crowns to support the bridge. This severely weakens those teeth and can lead to fracture, tooth decay, or infection over time.

Bridges also have an average lifespan of only ten years. Bone loss occurs under a missing tooth due to the absence of chewing pressure on the jaw. The replacement tooth in the dental bridge provides no chewing pressure to maintain bone volume and cannot prevent bone loss.

Dental implants do not require grinding down your healthy adjacent teeth. They provide the chewing pressure needed to maintain bone volume in your jaw and can last a lifetime when cared for correctly. They have numerous advantages over all other forms of tooth replacement.

Advanced technology for same-day implant treatment

Dr. Malin will use advanced 3D software to map the exact angle and position of your implant.

He uses the latest dental 3D imaging and special planning software to determine your implant’s exact placement angle and position. He also plans out any needed bone grafting in advance of your treatment to ensure the implant has the necessary support and will be stable once in place.

What is the treatment like to experience?

If you have a broken-down tooth that needs extraction, Dr. Malin will do so with a gentle technique that preserves the maximum amount of gum and bone tissue around the extracted tooth. This minimizes the need for bone grafting and speeds healing. Dr. Malin uses a groundbreaking system to keep his patients comfortable during the procedure.

In most cases, Dr. Malin can place the implant and any needed bone grafts immediately after the tooth extraction. If the implant is in a visible area of your smile, he will provide a temporary cosmetic tooth that preserves your appearance while putting no pressure on the implant during the healing process.
