How is the PROCEDURE

During your initial consultation, we will collect digital X-rays of your teeth to assess the state of your oral health. From there, we will help you determine if you need dental implants to hold in your crown or dental bridge

Most dental implants is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a posts. The “root” is usually made of titanium, a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post.  These posts replace the roots of missing or broken teeth when the roots are no longer strong enough to support a crown or bridge. These posts replace the roots of missing or broken teeth when the roots are no longer strong enough to support a crown or bridge. And surgically fix accordingly to the jawbone. Usually a healing period is required for the process known as Osseo integration—during which the bone grows in tightly around the root form so that it is solidly anchored. Dental implants also help prevent deterioration of the tooth-supporting bone they latch onto, protecting your entire smile from future damage. Once the dental implants are installed and healed, they can be capped off with a replacement tooth or bridge. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

Are Dental Implants Right For You

That’s something we would love to figure out! The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease. If this is not the right solution for you, we will discuss other cosmetic dentistry services that may be a better fit. All of this happens in a 100% judgement-free environment where your satisfaction is guaranteed.

Post-Treatment Care

Consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing, and the same amount of regular check-ups. Just like your natural teeth, the better you take care of your replacements, the longer they will last.

Implant Maintenance

Once your dental implant restoration is completed, it is important to keep the area clean and free of infection. Dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar just as teeth can. Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, professional cleanings will be necessary to keep your implants healthy. The time interval for these professional cleanings will be determined by your individual needs.
Situations Where Dental Implants Are Used:

  • If you are missing all your teeth, dental implants are far preferable to removable complete dentures. Removable dentures not only have poor chewing efficiency (less than 50% of normal chewing efficiency), but they will lead to gradual bone resorption ending up with facial collapse and the inability to reasonably fit any kind of a denture.
  • If you have one or two teeth missing, and the adjacent teeth are intact and healthy, dental implants are a good idea. They eliminate the need for placing crowns on adjacent healthy teeth.
  • If you’re missing tooth or teeth are in the very back of your mouth, you may not have the option of having potential supporting teeth on both sides. In this case, the only solutions would be dental implants or an uncomfortable removable appliance. The same is true if you have a number of missing teeth.

Advantages and Disadvantages of a Dental Implant

Disadvantages:

  • There is usually a healing time required.
  • They may be more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement.

Advantages:

  • It isn’t required to prepare the adjacent teeth. The old-fashioned method for replacing a missing tooth is with a dental bridge. A dental bridge requires preparing the adjacent teeth for crowns, and then the false tooth is suspended between those two crowns. It’s nice to avoid this aggressive treatment of otherwise healthy teeth.
  • Maintenance is less expensive. If a dental bridge has any trouble with any one of the three or more teeth involved, the entire restoration usually has to be replaced. Additionally, cleaning it properly requires the use of floss, which most people find troublesome. A dental implant, however, can be brushed and flossed normally, and in the unlikely event that there is trouble with it later, no other teeth need to be involved in the treatment of the problem.
  • They preserve the bone. When a tooth is extracted, the body senses the loss and begins to resorb the bone that used to support that tooth. In the case of multiple missing teeth, this can lead to facial collapse, inability to wear even removable teeth, or jaw fracture. This is in addition to the aesthetic problems. The presence of a dental implant signals to the body that this bone is still needed, and these difficulties are prevented.

Implants not only made to make it look more natural, but to make you feel and act more like normal teeth, with a stronger biting force. And because they don't directly rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants don't compromise the health of your natural teeth.
