The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve bone, preventing the bone loss that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, we ask that you undergo a dental/radiographic examination and health history.
During these consultation visits, your specific needs and considerations will be addressed by the Dentist and by a specialist (an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, or periodontist). Your questions and concerns are important to us. Out team will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.
They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts (abutments) are then attached to the implant, which protrudes through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth (crowns and bridges).
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures.
In the first phase, implants are placed into the bone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the bone. During this time, our office designs the final bridgework or denture, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
The second phase begins, After the implant has bonded to the bone. The oral surgeon or periodontist will uncover the implants and attach a small healing cap. An impression is then taken and sent to the lab, where they begin making your new teeth. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
