Dental implants and dental implant supported crowns, bridges, and dentures have now become the treatment of choice for the replacement of missing teeth, whether it be one tooth or all the teeth. Predictable implant procedures with excellent long term success are now routine.
Improved Quality of Life
Dental implant-supported replacement teeth look, feel and function like natural teeth.
For patients, dental implants provide comfort, convenience and confidence.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.
Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by your Prosthodontist. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!
Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be adjusted or replaced due to normal wear and function.
Reasons for dental implants:
Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
Restore a patient’s confident smile.
Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
What does getting dental implants involve?
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone.
After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the implant. The artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
