A dental implant is a biocompatible, man-made substitute that replaces missing tooth roots. Usually made of the space-age alloy titanium, implants come in various shapes and sizes to fit the situation. Dental implants are the most stable solution to missing teeth.
Health Benefits of Dental Implants
It is important to understand that your teeth are held in place by tooth roots and surrounding teeth. This means that when you lose a tooth, the teeth surrounding the gap begin to tilt toward the open space. A dental implant not only prevents further tooth loss, but it also allows you to eat and speak easier. Many of our patients report having better confidence after dental implant recovery.
Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, improve appearance, end embarrassment and give real self-confidence to patients who need them. Because of proven success, preservation of existing teeth and no susceptibility to dental decay (cavities), dental implants are the answer to missing teeth. They are a real breakthrough!
The Dental Implant Process
The entire dental implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the dental implant itself. This is done by an oral surgeon who we have carefully selected for your particular care. Multiple dental implants can be placed at once if necessary. The entire process is much easier than it may sound. The dental implant is one of the greatest revolutions in dentistry, changing the way we approach the problem of missing teeth. It is rapidly becoming one of the more common procedures in our office.
Dental implants require about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.
After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Using our CEREC System, we are then able to create your new teeth quickly and accurately in our own office and fit these to the dental implants. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
