Discover the Difference with Dental Implants

Missing teeth cause discomfort and embarrassment. Let us help restore your comfort and confidence with state-of-the-art dental implants. Dental implants are another way to replace missing teeth and help maintain your healthy smile. Dental implants replace the root structure of missing teeth or serve to support bridges or fixed partial dentures. The bone fuses to the implant, and a crown provides the replacement tooth structure.

What is the Process of Dental Implants?

The first step in obtaining a dental implant is to speak with your dentist and receive an oral examination. We will help you decide if dental implants are the best option for you based on your oral history, current oral health, and the density of your jawbone. The jawbone needs to be dense enough to hold the implant properly. Once you have decided that this is the best option for you, we will schedule a time to receive your implant. 

An incision will be made in your gums, and a series of specialized drills will be used to create a space for the implant. To avoid damage to the surrounding bone, we start drilling with a tiny drill bit that gets slightly larger to widen the hole. Then, the titanium screw of the dental implant will be placed into this hole. Depending on your treatment plan, the abutment may also be attached to the implant. Finally, your gums will be sutured, and you will be able to return home the same day.

Once the implant has fused to the surrounding bone, the dental crown can be attached. If not already connected, there may need to be minor surgery to attach the abutment before attaching the dental prosthetic. Once the prosthetic has been secured, the dental implant process is complete, and your smile is restored!

Restorations for Dental Implants

Patients have utilized dental implants worldwide to provide stability for tooth replacement restoration pieces for years. Dental implants can provide support for the following tooth replacement restorations: 

  • Dental Crown: We use dental crowns to replace a single tooth. In dentistry, a dental crown can restore the function and anatomy of a damaged, natural tooth, but it can also replace a tooth with an implant. 

 

  • Dental Bridge: Bridges are used in restorative dentistry to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row. Bridges can be secured into the mouth by supporting natural teeth if they are viable. If no anchoring teeth are available, a dental implant can be used. For this procedure, two implants are generally used. 

 

  • Dentures: Traditional dentures suction onto the ridge of the gum line in the smile. Although this type of denture is popular, it can cause slipping and not feeling secure. Through the use of six or four dental implants on each dental arch, dentures will be permanently secured into your mouth.

Why use Dental Implants

There are many benefits to having dental implants support your tooth restorations, including: 

  • Once an implant is surgically placed, the tooth restoration will become permanent. Being permanent will provide the tooth with a stable foundation. 

 

  • Restorations are made from a solid and tooth-colored material. Each repair is guaranteed to match your smile. 

 

  • Not only do implants enhance the appearance of your smile, but they also can improve your overall health. Implants allow for stimulation to pass into the jawbone, keeping it healthy.
