Dental Implants

Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, you don't have to sacrifice eating your favorite foods, chewing normally, or your appearance, speech, and self-esteem. You may be a candidate for dental implants. The dentists at Riviera Dental Care in Foley use the latest implant technology so you can smile again with confidence.
Teeth before and after

Implants

Your dentist will evaluate your existing teeth and bones, upper and lower jaws and gum tissues before recommending implants. Implants replace the roots of lost teeth and are inserted under the gums. After 3 to 6 months, the bones grow around and adapt to implants as if they were natural roots. Once the implants are firmly in place and the surrounding gum tissue is strong, they are ready to support a crown or restored tooth. When the process is completed, the "new" teeth are hard to tell apart from your original teeth!

Bone grafts

Bone loss can be the result from periodontal disease, injuries, cysts, infections or an extracted tooth. If the implant site does not have enough bone volume to support the implant, you may need a bone graft. Bone grafts are very safe and effective in the dental implant restoration. Once it is placed, it will help replace missing bone, stimulate bone formation and increase bone volume.
