Because dental implants are designed to be permanent, they serve as a remarkable tooth replacement procedure, offering restorative benefits such as improved chewing and speaking. In addition to improved function, dental implants also enhance the appearance of your smile by giving you a replacement tooth that looks completely natural. Dental implants do not move or slip and provide less risk of irritating the gums when compared to removable dental prosthetics. Dr. Michael Kosdon will be happy to meet with you to determine if dental implants may be a good option for attaining your goals.
If you have a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. These effective treatments can replace missing teeth with permanent results that look and feel like natural teeth, improving your ability to chew and speak and significantly enhancing the appearance of your smile. Dr. Kosdon will be happy to meet with you for an initial consultation to perform a comprehensive oral evaluation and determine if dental implants or other cosmetic dentistry solutions are the best options for your needs.
Good candidates for dental implants include:
Many factors are considered when determining candidacy for dental implants. If Dr. Kosdon has decided you may not be the best candidate for this procedure after he has examined you, he will recommend other advanced options that can serve as good alternatives to dental implants. For patients who are candidates, Dr. Kosdon will create a detailed, customized treatment plan to ensure the results of the dental implant procedure look and feel as natural as possible.
By offering a wide variety of dental implant types and materials, including metal-free zirconia dental implants, Dr. Kosdon can help ensure that each patient receives the right implant and restoration to create results that are long-lasting, functional, and incredibly natural-looking.
Zirconia dental implants are made entirely of strong, high-quality ceramic material and do not contain any metal. This aesthetically superior, holistic dental implant option provides several advantages over standard titanium models. The hypoallergenic zirconia dental implant eliminates the possibility of allergies and other biocompatibility issues that can occur with titanium. Additionally, the completely white color of metal-free zirconia implants ensure that no dark discolorations along the gumline or at the base of the crowns can develop. Other advantages of zirconia dental implants include:

The superior appearance of Dr. Kosdon’s dental implant results are largely due to the high-quality materials he uses, as well as the skill of his master ceramist. Each implant prosthesis is customized according to your unique dental characteristics and facial appearance to create the most natural look. When you choose hybrid dentures to complete your smile, the arches are made entirely from zirconia, which provides superior strength and beautiful aesthetics. Crown and bridge implant restorations are created from all-ceramic porcelain materials. Each implant restoration is hand-crafted by Dr. Kosdon’s master ceramist with the utmost attention to detail. His work is one-of-a kind, and the results of his artistry help patients’ restored smiles look their absolute best.
At every phase of the dental implants process, Dr. Kosdon is committed to providing quality, individualized care. When you are considering dental implants and researching dentists, we recommend being careful not to choose a practitioner who may rush the process and provide a one-size-fits all solution for your dental needs. While quality care often takes a little more time and may require more of a significant financial investment, the results are typically more reliable, longer-lasting, and more natural-looking. For some patients, “teeth-in-a-day” dental implants advertised by many implant centers and dentists can seem like an appealing option; however, this kind of terminology is designed to merely attract patients and does not honestly portray the process and results one can expect. If you are interested in the highest-quality results that look and function like natural teeth, teeth-in-a-day is probably not the right avenue for you. When you decide on Dr. Kosdon and his team for your dental implant procedure, you can rely on their extensive experience and superior patient care to deliver the results you expect.
