Dental Implants and Mini Implants

Rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.

Dental implants from Dr. Dave Ward are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.

A person with implants regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours have been preserved.

Dental Implants: Replacement Roots for Missing Teeth

Each is composed of 3 pieces - a titanium implant that fuses with your jawbone, the abutment which fits over the part of the implant that protrudes from your gums, and the implant crown which recreates the natural look of a tooth.

The post of an implant fuses with your jawbone, creating a solid surface that won't slip or shift as time goes by. In fact, dental implants have a 97% success rate depending upon the location and oral health of the patient. With proper care, your implants should last your whole lifetime!

Improve Your Quality of Life with Dental Implants

  1. Improved appearance - Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth

  2. Improved speech - Dental implants won't slip or shift when talking, allowing you to speak naturally without mumbling or slurring your words.

  3. Improved eating - Dining with dental implants is easier than with dentures and eliminates embarrassing sounds when eating.

  4. Improved oral health - Dental implants won't affect adjacent healthy teeth. Fixed bridges and removable dentures might require alterations and can wear down supporting teeth over time. Preserving those teeth can lead to better oral health long term.

  5. Improved confidence - Dental implants allow you to smile, eat and interact with others confidently and without the fear a dental mishap.

Mini Implants for Denture Stability

Having problems with your dentures? Unable to eat what you want? Dentures shift, tilt and wander? Tired of the taste and feel of messy denture adhesives?

Mini implants provide greater denture stability for those patients who cannot withstand the rigors of conventional implant surgery, do not have enough bone to allow for full-sized implants to be placed, or are in on-going therapy from one prosthetic system to another.

Visit Dr. Ward in the morning, have mini implants placed in less than two hours, then go out and enjoy your favorite lunch. It's just that easy!
