Restore The Function Of Your Smile With Dental Implants
A dental implant is made from titanium. It can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth. Denture patients can also benefit from this service as implants are a great alternative to loose poor fitting dentures that can result in embarrassing situations.
Implants bond to the jaw, much like the root of a natural tooth and permanently replace a lost tooth. They are gently placed during a simple, short surgical procedure done under local anesthetic. After a healing period of generally 3-6 months, a permanent restoration is crafted to fit on top of the implant, creating a tooth that compliments your smile and restores function and stability.
Reasons For Wanting To Get Dental Implants:
- Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition.
- Prevent premature aging - tooth loss causes bone loss
- Maintain your jawbone and gums - With dental implants, healthy teeth are not compromised.
- Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and reduce bone loss.
What to Expect From Dental Implant Treatment:
We will take x-rays and create a model of your existing teeth to determine the optimal implant position. Occasionally, a bone or gum tissue graft will be necessary to create adequate space for the implants.
Dental implants are placed in the bone in a relatively pain-free procedure. The bone and gums will be given time to heal before an abutment and crown are attached. In most cases, you can receive some type of temporary teeth the same day the implant is placed.
Your final crown will be placed once the implant has bonded, restoring your natural smile.
