Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Dental Implants have become an invaluable option to replace missing teeth as they
can be used to attach full or partial removable dentures as well as fixed crowns and

Dental implants are surgically placed below the gums where they fuse to the
jawbone. They add stability and security to the attached prosthesis.

Patients considering having a dental implant need to have healthy gums and
adequate bone to support the implant. Patients who smoke or suffer from certain
health problems are at an increased risk of having complications.

A thorough evaluation by the dentist will help determine if you are a
good candidate for a dental implant.

The patient must also be committed to meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental
Check-ups to help ensure their longevity.

- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- 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.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

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 for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, 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.
