Missing teeth can make chewing and speaking difficult. They can also make you hesitate to smile.
Fortunately, dental implants can replace lost tooth roots and give crowns, bridges, and dentures the exceptional stability you need.
Beck Pearce Dental in Cincinnati, OH, can rebuild your smile using dental implants and natural-looking restorations...
Benefits of Dental Implants
Any patient who has a traditional denture knows that this solution is prone to moving and slipping. Only implants can give dentures and other restorations the stability needed to chew and speak properly. The implant is placed in the jaw and integrates with the surrounding bone tissue. If you are dissatisfied with the instability of your denture, an implant may be the restorative solution you have been looking for.
Prevention of Jawbone Atrophy
Tooth loss causes jaw atrophy. Tooth roots stimulate bone retention in the jaw. Following significant tooth loss, you risk developing the puckered look often associated with advanced age and tooth loss. Once your dental implants are placed at our Cincinnati practice, your jaw will receive the stimulation needed to retain its shape and strength.
A Restoration that Lasts a Lifetime
With proper maintenance and care, dental implants can last a lifetime. It is important to note that the restorations (the part of the replacement tooth that is visible above the gumline) will eventually need to be replaced.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Your Cincinnati doctor will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after examining your teeth, reviewing your medical history, and listening to your concerns and goals. Often, candidates are dissatisfied with the performance of their denture or are frustrated about gaps in their smile due to missing teeth. During your consultation, patients should disclose all medications that they are taking. Your consultation will include an examination of your teeth and jaw using digital imaging conducted with a cone beam scanner.
Those who have experienced advanced jaw atrophy may require bone grafting surgery. Implants require a certain amount of bone tissue for support. Our dentists can replace this lost tissue through bone grafting in order to help patients become eligible for dental implants.
Other implant candidacy considerations include:
How Are Dental Implants Placed?

A Closer Look at Implants
Aftercare and Recovery
After the placement of your titanium implant, your recovery time will range from three to six months. During this period of recovery, the implant will integrate with the surrounding bone tissue through a natural process called osseointegration. You will be given detailed recovery guidelines that will specify the medications you can take for discomfort, oral hygiene guidelines, when to resume normal activities, and other recovery topics.
More Positive Reviews

Best experience ever with a team who truly cares!! Very attentive and professional!! Will recommend in a heartbeat.
Your Final Restoration
Before your dental crown or other restoration is placed, you will return to our Cincinnati dental practice to receive a small metal attachment called an abutment. The abutment connects your restoration to your implant. Once the gums have healed in a way that leaves the abutment exposed above the gumline, we will take impressions of abutment and your teeth in order to create your restoration. In some cases, we can create a same-day restoration using our CEREC® technology.
Once you have fully healed, a final visit will be scheduled to place your restoration. Your dentist will place your custom restoration, which will blend with your natural teeth, onto the abutment. He will then make any adjustments necessary to ensure a comfortable bite.
Tooth Loss Is Common, But Treatable
All-on-4®: Expedited and Simplified Treatment
For qualifying patients, we also offer the advanced All-on-4 solution, which uses just four implants to support a full denture. In many cases, this solution can help patients forego bone grafting. These implants can support a full denture immediately following surgery.
During a consultation at our Cincinnati or Mason offices, we can determine if All-on-4, traditional implants, or another solution is the best way to rebuild your smile.
