The most significant dental innovation of our generation, dental implants are a long lasting and durable solution to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. A natural looking porcelain crown or multiple crowns are then permanently fixed to the implant. Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, multiple teeth or all of your teeth. The result is the comfort, security, fit, feel and function of natural teeth.
Dental Implants are the state-of-art treatment option to restore a youthful and confident smile. Fully functioning teeth even allow you to chew and eat all of your favorite foods! This life changing procedure can be accomplished in as little as one day. Call our office today to learn more.
Below are some examples of Dr. Babushkin’s work restoring implants with natural looking teeth.
Single Implant in the Smile Zone
This adult patient suffered a traumatic hockey accident as a child and his front tooth was treated with a root canal and a crown. As an adult, the tooth fractured and Dr. Babushkin replaced it with a dental implant and crown. By maintaining the gum tissue scallop and matching the crown, the replacement is indiscernible from the rest of the natural teeth.
This tooth required replacement due to resorption. A process where the tooth is attacked by one's own immune system and becomes hollow. Notice the pinkish hue.
A single dental implant, with a custom zirconia abutment and crown gave this patient a permanent tooth replacement that is esthetic and functional.
Multiple Implants in the Smile Zone
This adult patient had tooth supported upper bridge that failed. Dr. Babushkin replaced it with an implant supported fixed bridge secured on 6 dental implants.
This adult patient lost three teeth in the smile zone that were replaced by two dental implants and a fixed implant supported bridge.
Single Implant Replacing A Congenitally Missing Lateral Incisor
Congenitally missing lateral incisors are a common problem for our patients.
The combination of well planned orthodontics, tooth whitening, and dental implant treatment can result in a long lasting esthetic tooth replacement.
This congenitally missing lateral incisor was replaced with a dental Implant and crown in conjunction with some esthetic bonding, resulting in a balanced and esthetic smile.
Posterior (Back) Tooth Implant Replacements
Immediate Replacement of a Full Jaw of Teeth
Replacement of a full arch or both arches of teeth is both esthetic and functional. Dental implants can be placed at the time of tooth extraction in most cases and a fixed dental replacement is delivered immediately. This same day procedure allows the patient to go home with a fixed prosthesis rather than a removable denture.
This patient suffered lifelong periodontal disease. Immediate dental implants and a fixed hybrid prothesis transformed her smile in one day.

Immediate Replacement of a full Jaw of Teeth Final Prosthesis
The final prosthesis can be made from a variety of dental materials, each possessing different characteristics. We can custom tailor this prosthesis to your individual needs.
Implant Retained Removable Prosthetics
Implant retained removable prosthetics are a subset of implant treatment utilizing fewer implants for retention of a removable partial or complete denture.The prosthesis is snapped on to the implants with no unsightly metal clasps or in conjunction with metal clasps.
REASONS FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS
Replace one or more missing teeth without
affecting adjacent teeth.
Resolve bite problems caused by
teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
Support a bridge or denture, making them more
secure and comfortable.
What does the dental implant process involve?
The process of getting implants can require as little as one visit or several visits depending on the patient's anatomical limitations or the need to develop the intended implant site with grafting.
A digital CT scan and digital impressions are taken of the
jaws and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available
for an implant. The CT scan and impressions are evaluated on digital scans and the implants are proposed on treatment planning software. This software allows the implants to be envisioned and create a surgical guide that will assure ideal implant placement. A three dimensional approach allows for great control over implant placement and optimal results. At the time of surgery the area is numbed, the surgical guide is placed and the implants are installed into the bone. Often these implants can have an immediate tooth or teeth connected to it.
If poor bone quality is encountered at time of placement, the implants will be allowed to heal with a temporary tooth replacement. After several months of healing, the permanent tooth or teeth replacement are fabricated and securely attached to the implants. The result is esthetic, functional,stable and comfortable.
Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and
regular dental visits will assure the longevity of implant placement. Dental implants are the optimal long lasting tooth replacement solution.
