Why Dental Implants?

We want our patients to smile with confidence. Living with the symptoms of missing teeth is difficult and we are here to find a solution that works for you. We believe our patients deserve the best tooth replacement options available. Our dental implants from the Altschuler Periodontic and Implant Center are the best option for many of our Gainesville patients. Implants improve your overall oral health while looking and feeling natural.

Dental Implants Restore Your Smile

Patients may feel self-conscious about their smile and may not want to show their teeth. We want to give you back the confidence to smile again. This is why we are delighted to share the amazing implant treatments we offer. Smiling is contagious and we want to help you spread your joy with the world. Our implants look like your natural teeth and are crafted to blend into your smile so that you can smile with confidence again.

Thanks to our state-of-the-art technology we make porcelain teeth that match your smile seamlessly. From the shade to the shape and size, your friends and family won’t be able to tell the difference! With a new smile you can count on, you can take on that job interview, corporate meeting, or first date with confidence.

Natural Functionality

Our dental implants feel extremely natural because they simulate how your natural teeth function. This opens you up to eat a fuller and more natural diet because you don’t have to limit your options to soft foods that are easy to chew. With dental implants, you can once again eat all of your favorite food. Implants work so well because they strengthen your bite and prevent the loss of bone mass in your jaw.

If an easier eating experience was not enough, the great news doesn’t end there. Our dental implants are also easy to clean and maintain. You floss and brush your prosthetic teeth just like your natural teeth. Since dental implants function like natural teeth, they are extremely durable and can last a lifetime with proper care.

Dental Implants and Dentures

While dentures are much cheaper and can be adjusted, many of our patients have been dissatisfied with the performance of their particular dentures. Some have noticed that they slip and fall out when eating or conversing. Others have complained that something in their oral structure has changed, making the denture feel uncomfortable and ill-fitting. When compared to dentures, dental implants have been found to be more convenient and cost-effective than dentures.

Dental implants are permanent fixtures, eliminating that worry of your implant falling out or becoming loose. And since they can’t be removed and are durable, dental implants can be cleaned with your usual daily oral regimen.

One of the best aspects of dental implants when compared to dentures are the benefits to your oral health. With dentures, they merely cover up the gap in your smile. However, this could still lead to neighboring teeth shifting out of position and for the underlying bone to deteriorate. Dental implants effectively fill the empty space down to the bone, essentially plugging a hole with a natural-looking and functioning artificial tooth.
