Dental Implants

Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. Coming to Walker Family Dental will assure your dental implants are done the right way. We will restore that sparkle in your smile!

Dental implants are a life-long solution for missing teeth.

A titanium post fits into the boney socket of the missing tooth which closely resembles a natural root. A porcelain crown then sits on top of the post and replaces the missing tooth.

Our bodies readily accept the titanium post once it is placed into the socket of the missing tooth. Over time, bone grows around the implant post making it as strong as a natural tooth. We then place a porcelain crown on top of the post. As a result, it functions and looks like your own tooth.

Dental Implants look and function just like natural teeth.

Dental implants are becoming more common and can replace most missing teeth. We will help you claim your insurance benefits and work within your budget.

When properly cared for, they can last a lifetime. Whereas dentures, because they are more fragile, will have to be replaced. Not to mention they are much less comfortable. As for quality of life, implants perform and feel like natural teeth:

  • They do not slip.
  • There is no large piece of uncomfortable, “alien” plastic holding the teeth in place.
  • You can eat all the foods you love without worry.
  • You do not have to remove them for cleaning – simply brush and floss as you do with natural teeth.

They are not removable and stay in your mouth. They look and function just like natural teeth.

Caring for dental implants is the same as caring for natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly and see your dentist for regular professional cleanings and checkups.

Children cannot get dental implants. An implant is placed directly in the jawbone. A child’s jawbone changes as it grows and having an implant may prevent the jawbone from growing properly or result in natural teeth growing into the wrong position. Typically, because girls develop more quickly than boys, they may be considered for implants after the age of 15. Boys may have to wait until the age of 17. There are, of course, exceptions depending on the rate of development of the individual child.

FAQ's

What are the benefits of implants?

When properly cared for, they can last a lifetime, whereas dentures, because they are more fragile, will have to be replaced, not to mention less comfortable. As for quality of life, they perform and feel like natural teeth:

  • They do not slip.
  • There is no large piece of uncomfortable, “alien” plastic holding the teeth in place.
  • You can eat all the foods you love without worry.
  • You do not have to remove them for cleaning – simply brush and floss as you do with natural teeth.

Are implants removable like dentures?

How do I care for my dental implants?

Caring for dental implants is the same as caring for natural teeth. Brush and floss regularly and see your dentist for regular professional cleanings and checkups.

Can children get implants?

Children cannot get dental implants. An implant is placed directly in the jawbone, and as the jawbone changes as it grows, having an implant—which is a restorative procedure—may prevent the jawbone from growing or result in natural teeth growing into the wrong position. Typically, because girls develop more quickly than boys, they may be considered for implants after the ag of 15. Boys may have to wait until the age of 17. There are, of course, exceptions, depending on the rate of development of the individual child.
