Dental implants Farmington
Permanently replacing a missing tooth
Replacing damaged or missing teeth is now possible with dental implants in Farmington from Farmington Family and Implant Dentistry. In the past, patients had to rely heavily on dental bridges and dentures to replace their missing teeth, but advances in dentistry have made implants possible. Modern implants look, feel and function just like real teeth. Each missing or damaged tooth can be permanently replaced by anchoring the replacement implant into the jaw itself. Dental implants look and feel like the real thing, helping patients to avoid the route of partial or full dentures.
What are implants & why should I consider them?
Dental implants are a surgical replacement device for missing teeth. Typically a metal material such as titanium is inserted and fastened directly into the jaw, acting as an anchor for the crown (prosthetic tooth). Once this implant is in place, the crown is then attached to the implant either via cementing it in place, or by a retainer screw.
Dental implants are usually an option for:
• Replacing a missing tooth – an implant and attached crown act and look just like the real thing.
• Replacing several missing teeth – an implant and bridge can replace missing teeth.
The benefits of dental implants:
• Improved appearance & comfort – implants can look and feel like a real tooth, boosting self-esteem.
• Improved chewing & overall eating – everyday activities like chewing will become easy again.

Replacing Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Single Tooth Replacement
A single tooth can be replaced by an individual implant topped by a carefully crafted artificial crown. Your replacement tooth will look and feel completely natural and will have the same biting and chewing power as a natural tooth. Our periodontist, Dr. El-Halaby, will design your crown in such a way that it blends in perfectly with the rest of your teeth and no one will ever notice you have an implant.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
For replacing several teeth in a row, our dentist will either use individual implants topped by single replacement crowns, or an implant-supported bridge. An implant-supported bridge is a series of connected crowns that is supported by two or more implants. Dr. El-Halaby will examine you and will recommend the option that best fits your specific needs.
Full Mouth Rejuvenation
When a patient is missing most of their teeth and looking for dentures as a replacement, implant supported dentures or All-O-4 Dental Implants might be the best method of reconstruction. These implants help prevent bone loss and deterioration over time, due to the jaw bone having no remaining function. It looks and feels just like natural teeth and is extremely durable.
Farmington dental implant process
Dr. El-Halaby will create your unique treatment plan based on your individual needs. We are able to plan, place and restore all in one location vs. having to refer out which often saves our patients time and money. Since Dr. El-Halaby is a periodontist, whom specializes and has had extensive training on the placement of dental implants, there is no better choice for dental implants in Farmington.
Implantation: The placement of the dental implant is a simple procedure performed in our office under local anesthesia. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone.
Success rates of up to 98%
While there are certain factors that may play into how successful dental implant procedures may be, the overall success rate is extremely high and very safe. Patients with otherwise healthy gums and bone are great candidates for dental implants. Speaking with your dentist or periodontist can help to determine the recommended course of action after a thorough consultation.
