Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that were first developed half a century ago by a Swedish scientist named Per-Ingvar Branemark. Implants are the state-of-the-art way to replace missing teeth. Initially they were developed to meet the patient’s need to secure loose-fitting dentures. Since the advent of the implant, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant’s usefulness, including the replacement of missing or lost teeth. Today, implant techniques provide a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:

  • Single Tooth Replacement
  • Anterior Teeth Replacement
  • Posterior Teeth Replacement
  • All Upper and/or Lower Teeth Replacement

Implants are a wonderful alternative to the traditional fixed or removable bridgework. Fixed (or cemented) bridgework requires the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth be crowned to help secure the bridge in place. The traditional bridgework will have all the teeth connected together. If, for whatever reasons, a tooth that is part of the fixed bridge should fail, then the entire bridge is lost. The possibility for this to occur with implants is extremely low because dental implants do not typically need to have the adjacent teeth crowned. Dental implants can act independently, just like natural teeth. You will find that they look like natural teeth, feel like natural teeth and work like natural teeth! It’s like getting a third set of teeth!

We use a state-of-the-art dental laboratory that is located here in Lincoln, Nebraska. To construct the natural-looking dental implants we use, Dental Designs Dental Lab only uses materials approved by the American Dental Association. As an added bonus, they provide on-site consultations for more complex cases. We never use discount dental laboratories outside the United States who cannot guarantee the use of ADA-approved materials.

implants2.jpgWhen you have a problem with your teeth it seems that it becomes a major priority in your life. Dr. Treat put in implants and my teeth are no longer a worry for me. They are just like my own teeth. I highly recommend implants from Antelope Creek Family Dentistry. – Charlesa T.

implants3.jpgI have had trouble with my teeth since I was a kid. It got to the point I could only chew on one side of my mouth. Dr. Treat recommended implants and it has solved my problem. I"ve had them for several years and would recommend them to anyone. – Charlie Huber

implants4.jpgAfter experiencing numerous dental difficulties, braces, partial and regular over-dentures, etc. that left me with a narrowing lower jawbone not conducive to holding in a full denture. ACFD really came to my rescue with installation of five separate implants spaced around the front arc of my lower jawbone: they then built a bridge connecting all five implants. A very well-fitting denture was designed with brackets inserted that clamp on the implanted bridge so snugly that there is no slippage yet today…twenty years from installation in 1991! All five implants are just as secure in my jawbone as they were in 1991. I highly recommend implants and dentures by ACFD! – Bonnie Eckery
