What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a remarkable solution for replacing missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots made from biocompatible materials like titanium, which are surgically placed into the jawbone. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

The Function and Purpose of Implants

Dental implants serve a crucial role in restoring oral health and functionality. They not only replace missing teeth but also:


  • Preserve Jawbone Density: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that often occurs after tooth loss.

  • Enhance Stability: Unlike traditional dentures, implants offer unmatched stability and prevent slippage or discomfort.

  • Promote Natural Chewing: With implants, you can enjoy a full range of dietary choices and chew your favorite foods comfortably.

Different Types of Dental Implants

At American Family Dentistry, we offer various types of dental implants to cater to your specific needs. Our implant options include:


  • Endosteal Implants: These are the most common types of dental implants placed directly into the jawbone.

  • Subperiosteal Implants: Suitable for patients with insufficient bone height, these implants sit on top of the jawbone.

  • All-on-4 Implants: An innovative solution for full arch restoration, providing immediate results.

Our Approach to Dental Implants

Dr. Kent and Dr. Poovey work together seamlessly to ensure the highest quality of care for their patients. We take great pride in crafting beautiful and natural-looking restorations, ensuring your smile looks its best. Our in-house implant and periodontal services enhance our ability to provide comprehensive and exceptional care to our patients. We understand that the health of surrounding structures, including osseous and gingival tissues, plays a crucial role in the success and longevity of your dental implants.
