Dental Implant Therapy

The Gold Standard of Care Today

At Ave Maria Dentistry, we advise our patients to consider the benefits of restoring their missing teeth or severely diseased teeth with prosthetic teeth on dental implants. Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that not only restore strong biting strength but also are the longest lasting treatment for filling in your smile.

Dental implant therapy is the gold standard of care today because it is predictably successful, long lasting, and provides optimal benefits. If you have a full overdenture or partial denture (bridge), or have lost or will soon lose one ore more teeth—an implant may be the solution for you.

We welcome you to contact your Ave Maria emergency dentist if you have need for a dentist for regular preventive care, restorative and cosmetic dentistry, or to address a dental emergency. One of the best ways to avoid the need for emergency dental treatment is regular dental checkups and early diagnosis. Give us a call today!

After treatment, your smile will appear naturally beautiful. Your teeth will function optimally with full biting strength. And, there will not be potential for a bridge or denture to slip and your mouth to become sore. Dental implant treatment is conservative because it does not involve modification of adjacent teeth to hold a prosthesis in place, and because it conserves bone tissue by stimulating bone growth and halting the progression of bone resorption that occurs when natural tooth roots are lost. It is also the longest lasting treatment for replacement of missing teeth.

Dr. Wisdom Akpaka offers a complimentary initial dental implant consultation that is free of charge. This may be your first visit to a dentist to inquire about dental implant therapy or a second-opinion visit after seeing another dentist or specialist. In many cases, all of a patient’s implant related procedures can be performed in our own office without referral to a specialist. We strive to make dental implant therapy affordable for our patients and welcome your inquiries. Give us a call to schedule your free initial consultation today!
