Dental implants don’t just replace your missing teeth so you can confidently smile. They benefit your oral and overall health in many ways, which makes them somewhat of a dental miracle.Doctor Jerry Farrell on Dental Implants Read Transcript
Prior to implants, the only way of restoring the integrity of your bite and your smile was either removable—removable partial dentures or full dentures. And fully, a third to half of people wearing lower dentures don't wear them, they don't fit. So, implants allow us to put back supports in the bone in ways that are fantastically predictable. People now are doing hips and knees and there's no discussion of whether it's gonna work because with the advent of titanium, and the technology whereby bone osteo integrates and grows right onto the titanium, most of those studies were done in the mouth because of the ready access to bone.
So dental implants are around—worked out, not experimental. They don't decay. We're at the point where they're a genuine tool and again, using them as the foundation for dental solutions or problems that people have, it's beautiful. It's something that we do every day. It's painless. That, plus bone grafting techniques that sound scary but allow us to preserve bone in the loss of teeth—a little technicalbut important to knowbecause the bigger problems with implants are not whether they work, it's what we inherit and where can we find places to put them. It's a fantastic tool worked out, but if done under the umbrella of a big plan, it's kind of a beautiful time. Dentistry's got a lot of tools to help people at this stage of the game.

Discovering The Best Dental Implants For You
Dental implants restore your smile if you’re missing one tooth or need to replace all of them. Dr. Farrell can even provide oral surgery procedures to help you receive them if your jaw isn’t strong enough to support them. We offer two types of dental implants:
Traditional dental implants, which are titanium replacement tooth roots that are gently positioned into your jaw. The implants naturally fuse to your jawbone to serve as dependable, long-lasting anchors for replacement teeth.
Mini dental implants, which are a smaller version of traditional implants. These are used if you don’t have enough bone mass in your jaw to support regular implants. You can still benefit from a fully functioning smile!
Receiving Your Treatment With The Utmost Comfort
Dr. Jerry Farrell makes sure you’re a good candidate for implants by first taking digital X-rays of your mouth. These are safer and clearer than traditional X-rays, and they allow him to perfectly place the implants to best benefit your smile.
If you require tooth removals or extractions, which is common for many patients receiving implants, Dr. Farrell will gently perform the procedure so you can enjoy the highest level of oral health. He may also recommend bone grafts to enhance the strength of your jaw to better receive implants.
During any procedure, you will feel relaxed and experience no discomfort. Dr. Farrell provides local anesthesia as well as safe dental sedation to ensure you remain free of stress and pain.
