Replace Missing Teeth & Roots for a Stronger Bite

Bone loss is one of the biggest problems whenever anyone loses teeth. In fact, you can lose as much as 25 percent of your jawbone width in places where a single tooth is gone. That isn’t just bad for your bone health. It raises the risk that you could lose more teeth. The more teeth you are missing, the worse this bone loss can be.

The key to stopping this bone loss is replacing the roots of your missing teeth. Many dentures and bridges replace only the crowns of teeth. Implants take the place of your missing roots.

We can restore your smile with implants using a variety of restorations:

  • Dental Crown – If you’re missing just one tooth, secure one of our same-day dental crowns to an implant placed in our office to keep your jawbone intact and prevent further tooth loss.
  • Dental Bridge– Replace several missing teeth with dental bridges anchored to implants to keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – You can avoid the sunken cheeks that come with bone loss by attaching implants to your dentures. This reduces wrinkles so you don’t look older than you are. You’ll also be able to chew your food easily for better digestion and your overall health.

Modern implants have a 96 percent success rate. Whether you are getting implants to replace a single tooth or as part of full-mouth reconstruction, they can last the rest of your life with proper care. In most cases, this simply involves brushing and flossing and visiting us for regular dental cleanings.

Don’t take chances with your teeth replacements. Contact Kirchner Dental to find out how you can get dental implants in Jeffersonville, IN. Call 812-913-6093 or schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that we place in your jaw to act as artificial teeth roots. They are an ideal way to replace missing teeth because the implant fuses with your jawbone to form a base for new teeth. Implants also help keep your jawbone healthy by stimulating the growth of new bone.

Are dental implants painful?

Our patients usually experience only mild discomfort after getting their new implants. Dr. Kirchner will use local anesthesia to ensure your mouth is numb and you don’t feel any pain. Plus, we offer sedation to help you relax and eliminate any dental anxiety you may experience.

How much do dental implants cost?

The cost of dental implants varies, depending mainly on how many implants you receive. In some cases, you may also need another procedure, like a tooth extraction or bone grafts, to prepare for implants. We’ll discuss the cost with you during the planning stage of your implants procedure so you know exactly what to expect. Financing options can make the cost of your care manageable.

Can dental implants come loose?

An implant must be surrounded by healthy gums and bone to heal properly once it’s placed. Depending on your oral health, we may recommend gum disease treatment or a bone graft before you receive an implant. Once healed, loose implants are exceptionally rare. In some cases, the restorations attached to your implants can come loose. If so, we can tighten or replace the restoration.

Will my dental implants look natural?

No one but your dentist – or anyone else looking at an X-ray of your jaw – will likely ever see your implants. The restorations attached to your implants are the only part that is visible to others when you smile. Your implants not only give you a natural-looking smile, but they will feel natural too. Unlike other tooth replacements, restorations secured by implants won’t slip out of place.
