Dental Implants

Restorative Care

Studies show that if a missing tooth isn’t replaced, up to 20% of adjacent teeth will be lost in the next 4 to 8 years. Keep your smile intact with dental implants, the modern replacement tooth solution that looks and feels completely natural. Dr. Bohnert, Dr. Geiger and Dr. Jones, along with the Southeast Family Dental team offer dental implant restorations and mini dental implants to give smiles new life.

Why implants?

We use dental implants to replace single teeth and to secure dentures, partials, and bridges. Implants are reliable and long lasting, and provide the security and comfort you’re seeking. They require no alteration of surrounding tooth structure and prevent the bone loss associated with missing teeth. Dental implants have a 95 to 98% success rate and may last a lifetime with proper care.

How do I get started?

Dr. Bohnert, Dr. Geiger or Dr. Jones will determine your candidacy, then refer you to a trusted oral surgeon for implant placement. Sterile, biocompatible titanium posts will be inserted in your jaw – one in the socket of each missing tooth or a few strategically placed to secure your prosthetic. Modern anesthesia and postoperative medications allow patients to undergo this minor surgical procedure with minimal discomfort.

Mini dental implants

Dr. Bohnert, Dr. Geiger and Dr. Jones also offer mini dental implants. Most often used to securely anchor a patient’s lower denture, mini dental implants can be appropriate for patients who do not have adequate bone structure for full-sized dental implants, or who would not be able to undergo conventional implant surgery. We will know whether mini dental implants are the right choice for you after evaluating your oral and overall health.

What happens next?

Your natural bone will fuse with the posts to create a solid foundation for your new smile. Dr. Bohnert, Dr. Geiger or Dr. Jones will attach your replacement teeth to the posts so that you can smile, eat, and live life with confidence.
