Implant Dentistry

Are you embarrassed to smile? Have tooth extractions left you with gaping spaces in your mouth? If you suffer from one or more missing teeth, dental implants may be just the answer for you. Consider implants to reclaim your oral health and put a smile back on your face. Don’t let tooth damage or decay compromise your vitality of life. Anyone that has a tooth extraction can be considered for an implant. Before the treatment, the dentist will thoroughly examine you and take a few x-rays. They will account for potential risk factors, such as smoking and general health problems. Undergoing multiple teeth extractions may be intimidating, but surgical extractions and implants placement have significantly advanced in recent years. Teeth replacement continues to be a cutting edge technology. Teeth can now be permanently replaced, with little pain or discomfort.

Implants take the place of a natural tooth’s root. The implant is a small titanium post made of material designed to bond with living tissue and bone. You should have enough bone in your jaw to solidly anchor the implant. If too much bone is missing, additional can be grafted (added). The dentist, periodontist, or oral surgeon will surgically implant the post into your jawbone in the area of the missing tooth root. It takes a few months for the jawbone to heal and fuse to the post. After the surgical implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post or abutment is attached to the post. The implant and abutment will be the foundation for the crown that replaces the tooth.

The abutment and crown are fabricated in a dental laboratory after the dentist takes super accurate impression of your teeth with bite index. The crown will closely match the color and shape of existing teeth. The new dental implant will look, feel, and function just like a natural tooth. Implants are meant to be permanent. If good oral care habits are followed, they will likely last a lifetime.

Dental implants improve the quality of life. Missing teeth can cause slurred speech. Eating will become easier. The pain and shame of missing teeth will become a distant memory. Self esteem will surely increase. Dental implants can bring back your dazzling smile, perk up your confidence and restore your zest for life.Single-Tooth-Solution_watermark_e
