Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the root of missing teeth. They are extremely safe and have been used in dentistry for over 40 years. Once healed, your implants will look and feel just like natural teeth! Dr. Matthew Holtan is a board certified implant specialist, meaning that he is able to do both the surgical and restorative portions of the procedure himself.
To Restore Multiple Missing Teeth
Implants are a good solution for those who have lost several teeth and are looking to find a permanent fix. With implants, patients will be able to function the same way they did before losing their natural teeth. Traditionally, this procedure would be done with two separate appointments that are scheduled 3-6 months apart. However, with new advancements, Dr. Holtan can complete the procedure in just one day. Dental implants are the best, longest lasting option to restore missing teeth.
In addition to looking and functioning just like regular teeth, implants are inserted without doing any damage to neighboring teeth. Because the implants act as a tooth root, the bone is better preserved and the dental implants join with the jaw bone. This preserves and keeps the bone healthy and intact. Along with looking just like a normal tooth, the implant is also easy to keep clean. Having a multiple tooth implant will look and feel just like the natural teeth it is replacing. For full mouth implants, a procedure we like to call “SameDay Smile” can be done; please see our Teeth-In-A-Day page for more information.
Do Implants Work?
YES! The Teeth-In-A-Day dental implant procedure has a documented long term success rate that exceeds 99% in multiple published studies.
His study on teeth-in-a-day dental implants shows a 100% prosthesis success and over 99% dental implant success.
Implants vs. Dentures
While dentures are less expensive than teeth in a day supported implants, dentures are typically poorly fitting, uncomfortable, and sometimes painful. Dentures often negatively affect your speech and sometimes have damaging psychological effects. Dental implants are permanent and offer a much better quality of life.
