Dental implants are really the standard of care. Bridge work, in most situations, just isn't the best option for you. With a dental implant, you can place one tooth, you can replace a few teeth or you can replace an entire arch of teeth. And a dental implant is similar to a root. So the implant goes into a bone and then a restoration is built on that foundation of the implant in the solid bone.
And what's terrific is if it's only one tooth, you don't touch the other teeth. You have a problem with one tooth, you take care of one tooth. Very wonderful, wonderful, wonderful procedure.
Dental Implants Explained
Dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth or teeth damaged by trauma, disease, or decay. Made of strong titanium, dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed beneath your gums.
Because they literally fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, dental implants provide a strong, sturdy foundation for many tooth replacement options, or restorations, including:
- Dental crowns
- Dental bridges
Regardless of which dental implant option you use, your new replacement teeth will blend in seamlessly with your smile!
The Many Advantages Of Dental Implants
Compared to other methods of replacing damaged or missing teeth, dental implants offer many benefits because they:
- Look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth
- Provide up to 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural teeth
- Can last a lifetime with proper care
- Do not require any preparation of healthy, surrounding teeth
- Prevent bone loss in your jaw, helping you maintain your youthful look
- Get a complete restoration in a single appointment with the help of CEREC technology
Our Dental Implant Process
To be a suitable candidate for dental implants, you will need a strong, thick jawbone. During an initial consultation, one of our talented dentists will evaluate your teeth, bone structure, and overall health to determine if dental implants are the best treatment option for you.
To evaluate your current situation and precisely plan your treatment, we will use state-of-the-art dental technologies and methods, including:
- CT scans
- 3D imaging systems
- Close-up photos and exact impressions of your teeth
Once we have planned accordingly, we will numb the area with anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing and then gently place your dental implants. We can even relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation options so you won’t be nervous.
In some cases, we may be able to place your dental implants and attach your restorations in a single visit for a same-day smile service! Depending on your situation, you may need to complete a brief healing period before we attach your beautiful replacement teeth. Either way, you’ll walk out smiling wide again!
