"I had a procedure which I had performed twice many years ago…both times extremely painful. I was very apprehensive to go through this again. This time my experience was so different being totally pain free and completely comfortable. I would never delay this procedure again…as long as FIFE Dental preforms the work. Thank you all for a wonderful experience!"

Natural-Looking Tooth Implants

The most attractive smiles showcase a full set of healthy teeth. If you have lost a tooth to decay or accident, there is a natural-looking long-term restoration option: tooth implants. Dr. Fife of Fife Dental Care in Rio Rancho, NM works to provide you with a dental experience free of pain and anxiety.

What is a Tooth Implant?

A tooth implant is comprised of two parts:

  • Titanium post
  • Crown

The titanium post is inserted into the jawbone, and through a process called osseointegration, the jawbone heals around the post, affixing it for a long-term solution. The crown is the portion of the implant above the gum used for biting and chewing.

The Benefits of Tooth Implants

There are a number of ways that missing dentition can be restored, such as a bridge, partial or complete
dentures. However, some people may not want to go through the fitting process or get used to the feel of a removable dental appliance. At-home care may be an inconvenience, too. Implants are a predictable, reliable, long-term solution. Implants help prevent bone and jaw deterioration, which, in turn, maintains the natural shape of the mouth.

Tooth implants are inserted during one in-office visit, and the crown is placed when the post is secured. Once your tooth implant is complete, you take care of it the same way you do your natural teeth with twice daily brushing and flossing and dental cleaning (prophy) appointments.

Get Tooth Implants with Ease and Comfort

At Fife Dental Care, we pride ourselves not only on the quality of the dental restorations we provide, but also on the care we deliver to our patients.
