Dental Implants – Replace Missing Teeth

A dental implant is a state-of-the-art dental device designed to replace missing teeth and restore oral function. Expertly crafted from biocompatible materials such as titanium, a dental implant consists of a small post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, where it serves as a sturdy foundation for a replacement tooth.

Over time, the implant integrates with the bone, a process known as osseointegration, ensuring a secure and durable anchor for the attached dental prosthetic, such as a dental crown or bridge. This innovative solution not only enhances the appearance and function of your smile but also supports overall dental health by preserving the jawbone and surrounding teeth structures.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

There are many benefits for patients who choose dental implants, including:

Restore Chewing Power: Allows you to enjoy your favorite foods with ease.
Improve Speech: Stabilizes teeth for clearer articulation.

Dental Implant Restoration

After your implant evaluation, our team will communicate with your restorative dentist — together they will collaborate on the best treatment options for you. All implant surgeries are done in the comfort of our dental office under local anesthetic.

Dental Implant Options

Digital radiographs (X-Rays) will be taken and will serve to help us evaluate the quality and quantity of existing bone. This information is valuable in that it assists us in determining the number and placement of implants.

Should additional medical information or adjunctive procedures/diagnostics be needed before implant placement, our recommendations will be made at that time.

We accept many dental insurance plans, and we offer several financing options. Our experts will assist you in understanding your dental insurance benefits.

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant placement is a multi-step procedure that begins with the preparation of the jawbone. If necessary, bone grafting is performed to ensure adequate bone density and volume. Once the jawbone is ready, a titanium implant post is inserted into the bone, serving as the new tooth's root.

This post is left to integrate with the bone over several months, a process known as osseointegration, which provides a stable foundation. After this period, a connector called an abutment is attached to the post. Finally, a custom-made crown, designed to match the natural teeth in color and shape, is secured onto the abutment, completing the restoration.

Dental Implant Materials

The materials we select for crafting dental implants are carefully chosen based on their placement within your mouth. For anterior teeth, which are highly visible, we use materials that closely resemble the natural aesthetic of real teeth, ensuring a seamless appearance.

In contrast, for molars and pre-molars, which bear the brunt of chewing, we opt for exceptionally durable materials capable of withstanding substantial bite forces. We offer a range of materials for your restorations, including porcelain, ceramic, gold, and metal, each tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of our patients.

Post Operative Instructions

After dental implant surgery, it's crucial to give your body the rest it needs. For the first two days, avoid any activity that could disturb the implant site, including touching it or engaging in strenuous activities, as this can lead to inflammation and excessive bleeding. During this initial healing phase, it's also important to adjust your diet.

Managing discomfort is an essential part of recovery. You can expect minor bleeding, which can be controlled by gently biting on gauze for about 30 minutes. Swelling is normal and indicates that your body is healing; manage this by applying a cold compress intermittently for the first 24 to 72 hours after the surgery.

Good oral hygiene is paramount to prevent infection. Begin gently brushing with a soft-bristle toothbrush the day after surgery, taking care to avoid the implant site. Floss daily but carefully around the area to avoid disturbing the healing tissues.
