Dental Implants


Replacing missing teeth is vital to your tooth function and oral health. Ignoring a missing tooth can have dire consequences, including a bad bite from teeth drifting out of place, excessive tooth wear, and even jawbone deterioration, also known as alveolar atrophy. When a tooth is missing, the underlying jawbone is not stimulated through chewing forces, which leads to bone deterioration. A loss of jawbone tissue can create oral health problems and even affect the appearance of your smile and facial structure.

Dental Implants Feel like Natural Teeth

You can prevent alveolar atrophy with dental implants. Made up of two parts, a dental implant consists of a titanium rod, which is an artificial tooth root implanted into the jawbone, and a porcelain crown that replaces the tooth. Since the restoration is fused to the jawbone, the dental implant has the security of a natural tooth. In fact, many patients report they cannot feel the difference between a natural tooth and dental implant. The durable porcelain crown not only stands up to normal tooth function but also appears completely natural because the material is dyed to match the rest of your teeth.

Exceptional Dental Implant Placement

If you have a missing tooth, do not wait to have it replaced. Alveolar atrophy develops quickly and can affect your candidacy for dental implants. With over 29 years of experience in placing dental implants, Dr. Ishida can determine the right solution for replacing your missing tooth. Your first appointment will include diagnostic X-rays that will determine the bone density of your jaw. If you are a candidate, Dr. Ishida will use a local anesthetic to numb the area surrounding your missing tooth. After some preparation, we can implant the biocompatible titanium rod into your jawbone. After implantation, the jawbone must fuse to the titanium rod successfully before we attach the porcelain crown at your next appointment.

"For years I suffered with partials that didn't fit properly, constantly having to visit my dentist for adjustments and still could not chew properly. There was fear each time I visited my family dentist because of the many issues I had experienced in addition to being displeased.


I called Dr. Morris because I wanted a change that would enhance my looks and relieve me of all the bad experiences with dentists. When I visited Dr. Morris, the staff was very friendly and professional. After a full examination, Dr. Morris indicated that I was a candidate for implants.


Today I am enjoying so many compliments about my new look, but most of all I'm enjoying eating different foods. In my profession, public speaking, I am now confident and proud of my appearance.
