Dental implants involve placing an artificial tooth root into the bone of your jaw. The bone heals and fuses to this new root, and a crown can be attached to the root to replace the missing tooth. Implants function like natural teeth and are brushed right in your mouth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to restore your smile and improve your oral health. They are a permanent solution to missing teeth and provide a secure and natural-looking replacement. Dental implants are designed to be strong and durable and can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. The benefits of dental implants include improved chewing and speaking abilities, increased confidence, and improved oral health. Dental implants are a great choice for those looking for a long-term solution to missing teeth.

Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are designed to fuse with your jawbone, creating a secure and permanent bond. This means that you can enjoy the same level of confidence and comfort as you would with natural teeth. Additionally, dental implants can help to preserve the jawbone, preventing it from deteriorating due to missing teeth. This can help to maintain your facial structure and prevent premature aging.

Dental implants can also help to improve your oral health. As they are designed to fuse with your jawbone, they can help to keep your teeth in proper alignment. This can improve your bite and reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Additionally, dental implants can help to prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting, which can lead to a misaligned bite.

Types of Dental Implants

The two main types of dental implant materials are titanium and zirconia/ceramic. Both types of implants can be used to replace one or more teeth and can provide a secure and stable foundation for dentures or bridges.

At Wellness Centered Dentistry, our experienced team can help you choose the right type of implant for your needs. We offer a full range of implant options to help you restore your smile and get back to enjoying life. Contact us today to learn more about our dental implant solutions.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Proper aftercare and maintenance are essential for ensuring the longevity of your implants. After the implant procedure, it is important to follow your dentist’s instructions for care and maintenance. This includes regular brushing and flossing, as well as routine checkups and cleanings. It is important to keep your gums healthy after getting dental implants. This can be done by brushing and flossing twice a day and using an antimicrobial mouthwash. Additionally, you should avoid hard and sticky foods that can damage the implants.

Regular dental visits are also important to make sure that your implants are in good condition. During these visits, Dr. Whicker will check for any signs of infection and make sure that the implants are properly aligned. By following these aftercare and maintenance tips, you can ensure that your dental implants last for many years.

What Our Amazing Patients Say

Benny Pezzano
Benny Pezzano

This is by far the most amazing and caring dentist experience you will ever have. I was seeking an alternative dentist because I, like most of us, was seeking a more holistic dentistry experience. Dr. Whicker and the team is absolutely on point. Kind, compassionate, professional and practical.

They are the best at informed consent- he will tell you exactly what he is doing and why he is doing it at any moment. I leave the office feeing taken care of and cared for instead of abused and taken advantage of. He even reaches out later in the day to check up on you makes sure everything is alright.

I will never go to another dentist. I could not recommend Dr. Whicker enough!! Thank you Wellness Centered!!

I visited Dr. Whicker for a tooth extraction and bone graft for a future implant placement. I am a Denturist (I fabricate and fit dentures). I see patients on a daily basis with fresh extractions and often times sutures. I was so impressed with Dr. Whicker! He was kind and courteous and very professional. He made sure that I was comfortable with each step of the procedure and talked to me and explained what he was doing throughout the process. The extraction site looks amazing and his sutures are impeccable. The staff were very friendly and the office is pristine. I will definitely be referring not only my friends and family, but my own patients to Dr. Whicker for dental treatments. I am so pleased!
