What Are Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a small titanium or zirconium appliance that we can install directly into your jawbone to fill the gap of a missing tooth, acting as a tooth’s root. There are a variety of benefits that can give an implant the ability to be a better option than a removable bridge or denture may be. The process, though, is time-consuming, and that may be its biggest downfall.
Dental Implant Placement
When you are going in for your appointment after being examined and deemed a candidate for treatment by one of our experienced dentists, one of the first things that will be looked at is the density of your jawbone.
If our dentists aren't sure that your jaw or mouth would be able to handle an implant, they may advise you to undergo a bone grafting procedure in which they can replenish the bone there. This adds some time to your procedure but allows the new tooth root to fuse to the jawbone.
Dental Implant Process
When it comes to the day of your surgical procedures, you can rest easy that you are in great hands. Our dentist will simply open up your gums with a small incision (under anesthetic so you are completely pain and discomfort-free) and will install the device directly into the bone.
Then, after it is healed and fused with the bone completely, your dentist can install a crown, dental bridges, or denture system to the implants. These restorations are versatile and can be used for many appliances above the gum line, but are also better for your oral health compared to pieces like dentures.
