Dental Implants in Dothan

Using dental implants. Dr. Field can provide you with beautiful, stable replacement teeth that function just like real teeth.

The Modern Solution for Tooth Replacement

A dental implant is a titanium post that is used to replace a missing tooth. Titanium is a biocompatible material that has the capability to fully integrate with human bone, providing a stable foundation for a replacement tooth. When topped with a crown, an implant can effectively provide you with the strength, feel and function of a real tooth. If you have several or all teeth missing, multiple implants can be used in combination with a bridge or denture to provide fully functional tooth replacement.

Dr. Field will take great care with every aspect of your implant treatment, including making sure that your new implant-supported teeth are beautiful and durable, and that they will align well with your bite.

  • Implant-supported, fixed-in full-arch teeth

    original_upper_all_on_4smallDr. Field can provide you with a full arch of implant-supported new teeth using the All-on-4® technique, which usually eliminates the need for bone grafting. Your new teeth will be crafted using high-quality medical-grade acrylic, or ultra-strong, lifelike zirconia porcelain. With the All-on-4 technique, even patients with extensive bone loss can usually receive implants.

  • Implant-retained, snap-in removable denture

    implantsupporteddenturesAs an alternative to fixed-in replacement teeth, you can have removable dentures with special attachments that snap onto your implants. Since they are not fixed-in, you can take your denture out for regular cleaning or whenever you choose. Implants help prevent progressive bone loss associated with traditional dentures, and provide greater stability and chewing power.

Benefits of Dental Implants

The normal actions of chewing and biting stimulate the bones in your jaw to stay healthy. When a tooth is missing, the lack of stimulation causes the surrounding bone to gradually deteriorate, weakening the jaw. Teeth next to the missing tooth can drift toward the open space, potentially causing bite misalignment and crooked teeth. Dental implants replace the missing tooth and help preserve the bone by providing the necessary stimulation and pressure.

Dental implants topped with new replacement teeth look and feel natural. They provide excellent chewing power so you can eat the foods you like, and with proper care they can last a lifetime. Our patients often remark they can’t tell the difference between their implants and their real teeth.

Who Are Candidates for Dental Implants?

In the past, patients with certain health conditions were not considered as candidates for implants. Patients with excessive bone loss in the jaw, or patients with medical issues such as diabetes or heavy smoking, were excluded from implant treatment.

However, thanks to advances in bone grafting techniques and implant placement technology, it is now possible for almost anyone to receive implants. Dr. Field can examine you and let you know if dental implants are an option for you.
