What are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. They are the most popular and effective way to re-grow your smile. Compared to dentures and bridges, they are longer-lasting, more natural in appearance, and much more convenient.
Dental implants are a great solution for people who suffer from failing teeth or chronic dental problems. Dental implants have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device and are a good option for restoring your smile.
Is Dental Implant Treatment Right for You?
If you have one or more missing teeth or will be having a tooth extracted soon, you may want to consider dental implant treatment as part of your treatment plan. There are many reasons why people choose to have dental implants:
How is a dental implant done?
A dental implant is one of the most advanced and successful ways to replace a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss. The procedure involves placing an artificial tooth root – which is typically made from titanium – into your jawbone to replace the root of your tooth. Over time, the titanium fuses to your jawbone, creating a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
Many people choose dental implants to replace teeth lost due to injury, gum disease, or decay, but they can also be used if you wear dentures and want to stabilize them. They are also widely used in cosmetic dentistry as they look and feel just like natural teeth.
This procedure is usually performed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon or a periodontist (a gum specialist), who will first assess your suitability for the procedure and explain any risks or considerations that may affect you.
We are now ready to place the implant. The first step is to place a small incision over the crest of the bone and raise a small flap of gum tissue. We then carefully reflect the gum tissue away from the bone to expose the bone. Next, we use a series of drills to prepare the bone for implants of different diameters.
This is a critical step and requires advanced training and experience in order to provide optimal outcomes for our patients. During surgery, we will determine optimal locations for implant placement and select implants that best match your particular needs. We will then place the implants into your jawbone and suture your gums closed around them.
Placement of implants is usually performed under local anesthesia, but some patients may require general anesthesia if they are getting multiple implants placed at once.
The end result of this process is that implants replace missing teeth and help us restore many smiles. Implants are especially beneficial for patients who have lost their teeth due to periodontal disease or trauma.
