Dental implants offer the convenience and reliability of natural teeth. Each implant is made of a titanium root that is placed into the jaw where the missing tooth previously stood. As new bone forms around this artificial root, it becomes so secure that it can support more weight than a real tooth.
Dental Implants Are Used For:
Missing Tooth Restoration
Multiple Tooth Dental Bridges
Full Mouth Implant Dentures

Who is an Ideal Dental Implant Candidate?
Dental implants are perfect for people who have lost their natural teeth. If you have a missing tooth due to decay, disease, or an accident – then an affordable dental implant is one of the best ways you can replace that tooth. The cost per tooth of dental implants makes it an economical long-term option.
Replacing your missing tooth can prevent your other teeth from shifting out of place. Implants also help you retain your natural biting function, self-confidence and avoid other types of problems caused by missing teeth.
To be a candidate for dental implants, your implantologist will need to see whether or not you have enough healthy bone to support the implant. Dr. Lingo has placed many dental implants – making him a perfect implant dentist to see for your smile.
What Exactly Are Dental Implants?
An implant is actually an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw. The implant root, just like a real tooth, is used to support a fixed prosthesis. You can have an implant crown, bridge or even an implant supported denture anchored over the artificial root. Because the success rate of implants is so high, our implant dentist Dr. Lingo can give you results that last a lifetime.
Life Long Tooth Replacement
How long do dental implants last? When well cared for, your new dental implants can last for a lifetime.Implants have the longest lifespan of any other type of tooth replacement treatment. In fact, implants last longer than traditional bridges, dentures and partial dentures due to their strength and stability. Having an implant specialist like Dr. Lingo complete your treatment will have a tremendous impact on your results.
Dental Implant Crowns, Bridges and Dentures
Once your dental implants are installed, our implantologist, Dr. Lingo, will create new implant teeth to go over your implant root. The type of implant teeth you choose depends on how many teeth are being replaced with implants. You may choose to have a crown over a single implant, or an All-on-4 denture that never comes out of place!
Reasons Why You Should Choose Dental Implants
The benefits of dental implants far outweigh all other types of tooth replacement. Here are just a few reasons why:
- Implant dentists can replace all of your teeth at once
- Implants are stronger than any other type of tooth replacement
- Dental implants give you stronger bone support
- The results from implants treatments usually last for a lifetime
- With dental implants, you can avoid altering your healthy, adjacent teeth
The dental implant procedure can sometimes be very quick. Same day implants may even be covered by your dental insurance! The costs of implants depend on the type of implants you receive, and the implant denture, partial or crowns that are placed. For an estimate on implant treatment, call Dr. Lingo today!
