Have you lost one or more teeth? Do you want to replace them with artificial teeth that let you bite and chew normally? If so, then dental implants are the choice for you–they fuse with your jawbone so that you can use them just like natural teeth. And you care for them like natural teeth, and when you care for them properly, they can last a lifetime, too.

Dental implants are replacement teeth. More specifically, they are replacement tooth roots. Dental implants are placed in the jawbone where the root of your natural tooth used to be. Implants are made of materials that your body will attach to. Usually, this is titanium, but sometimes it is an advanced ceramic like zirconia.
Once the body attaches to the implant in a process known as osseointegration, it is firmly fixed. An implant won’t come out. We then attach replacement for the visible part of the tooth or teeth. This can be a single dental crown, or it can be a short dental bridge. There are even implant-supported dentures that we can use to replace all your missing teeth at once in a single procedure.
Dental implants replace missing teeth. They can replace one, several, or all your lost teeth. While that may be all dental implants do, it’s enough, partly because they do it so well. Dental implants are almost identical to natural teeth in terms of:
Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. Most people won’t be able to tell you have a dental implant, if you have thick, healthy gums. Dental implants also let you bite and chew normally. You won’t have to remember that you have them. Dental implants also support your jawbone and gums just like natural teeth–your jawbone won’t diminish and collapse if you have implants.
Dental implants just require the same maintenance as natural teeth: just brush, floss, and make regular dental visits to keep your implants functioning and healthy. If you do that, there’s no reason why your dental implants can’t last a lifetime.
If you are considering dental implants, it’s important to choose the right dentist. Dentists need to properly plan, place, and restore dental implants.
A skilled dentist will be able to properly plan your dental implants, understanding where is the best place to put the implant in order to achieve the best function without interfering with your remaining natural teeth.
Then a dentist needs to be able to execute that plan by putting dental implants precisely into the proper spot. This ensures your dental implant has enough space to support itself and not interfere with natural teeth.
Finally, your dentist needs to be able to properly restore a dental implant. In dental terms, that’s the way we describe placing the visible attachment on top of a dental implant, whether it’s a crown for a single tooth, a short bridge, or a full implant-supported denture.
lovebites dentists have been recruited from the most elite dentists in the country. They understand how to deliver quality dental implants for their patients.
When restoring a dental implant, the lab has to be able to make the precise crown, bridge, or denture that your dentist needs. This depends on a lab having excellent communication with a dentist, following through on the dentist’s plan for integrating the dental implant with the natural teeth.
It also depends on the lab having excellent quality control, not only for the appearance of the crown, but also for the fit and the integrity of the crown. Proper manufacture of the crown can increase the strength and extend the lifetime of crowns on your dental implant. You want the crowns to approach the life-long potential of the implant itself.
lovebites has partnered with Las Vegas Esthetics (LVE), one of the nation’s leading dental labs, to provide the highest quality US-made crowns at a discount.
