Dental Implants

Dental implants are a remarkable modern dental technology that replaces missing teeth with lifelike prosthetics that look and function like real teeth.

The implant itself is a titanium “root” that is placed in your jaw and fuses with your bone over time. This process, called osseointegration, gives you a stable foundation to hold your dental crown in place. Dental implants do not move or shift like dentures, and they provide our patients with convenient, reliable dentistry that allows them to enjoy an unrestricted diet. 

Once your dental implant "root" heals and fuses with your bone, Dr. Meunier can restore the implant with a durable and natural-looking crown, which is crafted to blend in perfectly with the rest of your teeth. When you smile, no one will notice you have a dental implant, and you can take care of it just like your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings are essential to the longevity of your dentistry – including dental implants.

Secure Dentures and Bridges

We can also use dental implants to secure other dentistry prosthetics such as fixed dental bridges and dentures. This use of dental implants combines the affordability from these treatments with the stability and health benefits of dental implants. A few strategically placed dental implants can keep your teeth from shifting when you eat, smile, and laugh.

Dental Implants | Evansville, IN | Reliant Family DentalIf you have missing teeth, chances are you’re hiding your smile, chewing on one side, and wishing for something better. At Reliant Family Dental, we get it, and we want to help.

Dental implants in Evansville, IN are the gold standard when it comes to tooth replacement. And our patients who have undergone the dental implant process could not be happier.

Dental Implants Equal the Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement

There is simply no better tooth-replacement restoration on the planet. Dental implants look natural, feel natural, and function as normal teeth. Dental implants also up your oral health, improve your dietary selection, and help save existing teeth. Their versatility is remarkable.

When teeth are missing, the teeth left behind tend to shift toward these new cavernous spaces, which lead to uneven chewing, loose teeth, and wear. Additionally, your jawbone disappears without the support of teeth. Dental implants fix both these issues and help prevent future tooth loss and dental problems.

Dental implants require no messy dental adhesives or special care beyond routine dental visits and a good oral hygiene plan at home. A good oral hygiene plan is important because no restoration in the world protects against gum disease!

How It Works

A dental implant is a slender but sturdy implant post surgically placed in your jaw. It is made of titanium so it is strong and bonds easily with your jawbone over several months. When bonding is complete, you are ready for a permanent restoration tooth crown.

If you have complete tooth loss, approximately four dental implants can support a denture, restoring your bite and your smile!
