Implants are an excellent long-term solution for a variety of dental problems. The doctors at Dental Professionals have years of experience working with implants in all situations. We only use the industry’s best, most proven implants and parts. All implants are placed by specialists specifically trained in implant surgery.
Implant therapy can be completely safe and comfortable. For Missing Teeth Whether you are missing one, many, or all your teeth, dental implants are an option for almost any patient. We have worked with patients ranging from 18 to 93 years old, helping them to restore their smiles.
Immediate Implants for a Fractured Tooth Before implants, dentists went to great lengths to save cracked, fractured, or broken teeth. This often involved a root canal treatment, crown lengthening (gum surgery), putting a post in the tooth, building up the structure, and finally putting a crown on it. Still, these teeth were found to not be very strong and frequently broke soon after.
Today, with modern implant dentistry, we the have the option of a simpler, faster, and more predictable treatment. With immediate implants, a broken tooth can be taken out and often the implant put in on the same day. This technique shortens healing time, takes fewer appointments, and can even contribute to a better esthetic result for the final restoration.
At Dental Professionals, Dr. Jacobs spent a good portion of his three year prosthodontic specialty training planning, carrying out, and publishing an advanced study on the immediate implant technique. He has given presentations on the topic at both state and national specialist dental meetings. With a simple consult, he can let you know if you are a candidate for this type of procedure.
For Securing Dentures and Partials One of the greatest benefits of dental implants is their ability to stabilize loose or uncomfortable dentures and partials. With one to four implants underneath a denture or partial, we can adapt your teeth to snap into place, for comfortable, all-day function.
Studies of implants under dentures have shown that not only do they improve chewing, but they improve patients’ quality-of-life measurements in a host of different ways. You will smile, speak, and eat with more confidence knowing that your dentures are securely in place. No more clicking and no more embarrassment when a loose denture falls out.
Teeth in a Day Are you frustrated with your teeth because it always seems something is broken, hurting, or needing repair? Have you lost a number of teeth, or have been told you are about to, because of decay or gum disease?
At Dental Professionals, we have been able to help patients just like you through our teeth-in-a-day program. With this specialized technique, your failing teeth can be removed, implants placed, and teeth attached to them on the same day. You can avoid ever having to have partials or dentures—these teeth are fixed in place and function just like healthy, natural teeth.
