Dental Implants Auburn, ME

Today’s dental implants in Auburn, ME offer the best option when you need to replace missing teeth. These biocompatible restorations are designed to function like natural tooth roots, supporting a variety of fixed restorations to rebuild your smile after tooth loss.

Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Minimally invasive
  • Designed to last a lifetime
  • Stronger than anatomical teeth
  • Single or multi-tooth replacement
  • Quick recovery
  • Look and feel like natural teeth
  • Support healthy bone
  • Non-invasive to adjacent teeth

Once placed, dental implants in Auburn integrate with your bone, allowing them to become permanent fixtures in your smile. This integration process helps halt the natural bone loss that occurs after a dental extraction. In turn, it supports your facial profile to minimize premature aging and changes in your bite.

Candidates for Dental Implant Treatment

The ideal candidate for dental implants will be someone with missing teeth and relatively good health. We’ll want to review any medications or supplements that you’re taking, as some types of prescriptions and health conditions can interfere with bone and implant integration.

Since implants can be used for everything from full-mouth reconstruction to single-tooth replacement, there is no maximum or minimum number of teeth that need to be replaced. As little as two implants can support a 3-4 tooth bridge, while as few as 4-6 implants are capable of anchoring a full-arch hybrid prosthesis (such as “All-on-4” dentures.)

What to Expect

A dental implant can be installed with only a small amount of local anesthetic. However, it will require several months to fully integrate before it’s safe to anchor a permanent restoration (crown, bridge, etc.) into place. Our Auburn dental implant dentist can fit you with a temporary healing appliance before the fixed restoration is ready to install.
