Dental Implants Surgery - Albuquerque, NM

#1 Solution to Tooth Loss

Long-Lasting, Life-Changing Dental Implants

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be struggling to bite and chew foods comfortably. Gaps in your diet may be overshadowed by the gaps in your smile that are leaving you feeling embarrassed to laugh or socialize. 

If you’re missing most or all your teeth, you may notice that your facial shape is changing as your jawbone continues to shrink. Dental implants are the only truly long-term solution—and most natural-looking solution—for replacing your missing teeth. 

Considered the “gold” standard in tooth replacement, dental implants restore your oral health, smile aesthetics, and dental function.

Dental implants are made up of three components—post, abutment, and restoration—that mimic the function of natural teeth. Secured in your jawbone, they support single and multiple restorations and full arch solutions, including implant supported dentures and full mouth dental implants. 

Our team is experienced in dental implants and leverages advanced technology and high-quality materials to ensure the long-term success of your treatment.

We will help you experience a life of health, function, and confidence with dental implants and permanent new teeth!

The Choice Is Yours

Dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number of missing teeth. They can support a dental bridge or dental crown to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Dental implants can also be used to increase the stability of a denture, which snaps securely to the implants placed in the jawbone. 

For patients with many or all missing teeth, dental implants can permanently support a full bridge of artificial teeth. This solution makes it possible to eat any type of food with life-like, strong teeth. 

In all cases, dental implants make it possible to eat comfortably with stable teeth, feel confident in a complete smile, improve your oral and physical health, and live an overall better quality of life.

The Dental Implant Treatment Process

Your dental implant treatment is personalized to your specific oral health needs and smile goals. 

You’ll first complete a consultation with our implant dentist, where we will discuss your dental and medical history, take digital x-rays, and create a custom treatment plan. If you need tooth extractions or bone grafting, we’ll be able to determine if these need to be completed before your implant surgery or on the same day. 

Next, you’ll undergo dental implant placement surgery. With advanced technology and relaxing sedation, this surgery is comfortable and efficient and can be completed in just a few hours. 

During surgery, each dental implant post will be placed in strategic locations in your jawbone avoiding nerves and optimizing longevity and aesthetics. 

In certain cases, we may be able to attach a temporary tooth or set of teeth at this appointment. 

As your mouth heals over the next three or more months, you’ll be able to eat comfortably and enjoy restored smile aesthetics until you receive your permanent, custom-made restoration.

How Dental Implants Benefit Patients

Dental implants provide numerous advantages over other tooth replacement options. Unlike dentures, dental implants are permanently secured in your jawbone and act like artificial tooth roots (implant posts). 

They are not removable and are stable enough to restore over 99 percent of natural biting and chewing power. 

Unlike dental bridges, dental implants do not require healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration. Dental implants only need proper jawbone density to remain secure and strong, where they will in turn provide stimulation to keep the bone healthy. 

For this reason, implants are one of the preferred solutions and virtually all patients are candidates or can become candidates after bone levels in their jaw are restored through bone grafting.
