With the update to its dental implant treatments, Gentle Touch Family Dentistry is providing its patients with more durable and reliable tooth replacement alternatives to dentures and bridges. The practice offers three dental implant options – single, multiple, and full mouth.

Dental implants are essentially replacement teeth attached to posts, or implants, that have been surgically inserted and fused into the jawbone. Due to this fusion, they are much more stable and secure than dentures or bridges and therefore tend to have a longer life. With proper care, dental implants like those now performed by the professionals at Gentle Touch Family Dentistry can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years, or longer.
Gentle Touch Family Dentistry typically uses one of three dental implant options based on the patient’s needs. As their names imply, single dental implants are used when only one tooth needs replacing, and multiple dental implants are used when several teeth (usually near each other) need replacing. To replace entire sets of teeth, full mouth implants, or All-On-Four implants, are preferred. With these implants, four strategically placed posts are used to anchor the replacement teeth, minimizing the number of implants that are needed.
With all dental implant procedures, Gentle Touch Family Dentistry starts with a consultation to go over the process. In some cases, bone augmentation is required to strengthen the jawbone before surgery. Once the jaw is strong enough, the posts are inserted into the jawbone, left to heal (usually for several weeks), and then the crowns or bridges are added on top of them.
By getting dental implants, patients significantly improve both the appearance and functionality of their teeth. Also, practicing good oral hygiene becomes easier because dental implants don’t have spaces where plaque can build up.
“Dental implants provide an attractive solution for those with missing or damaged teeth, offering artificial replacements that look and feel like the real thing,” said a spokesperson for the practice. “With proper care, they can provide a lifetime of functional benefits, and help improve and maintain your oral health and overall well-being.”
