What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal posts that serve as artificial tooth roots for replacement teeth, surgically placed into your jawbone. The implant posts are made of body-safe materials like titanium and titanium alloy and serve as a permanent base for placing a crown or bridge on. The components of a dental implant are:
- The Post
- An Abutment
- The Restoration
Our Dental Implant Process
Our implant dentistry process starts with an in-depth consultation and oral exam. Our experienced dental team will determine the best options for your implants during this time. We take advantage of precision CBCT scans, which give us a clear picture of your dentition and jawbone.
We will select different sedation levels for your procedure, depending upon your needs, before the procedure begins. Once you're prepped and ready, we will begin the process of placing the implant with the aid of state-of-the-art technology. Our advanced computer-guided technique will help direct the implant into optimal placement for long-lasting results.
When you have fully recovered and your implants have bonded to your jawbone, we will design and place restorations like crowns or dentures that will fit your smile seamlessly. Whether you are receiving single-tooth implants that replace a missing tooth or more advanced full-mouth implants, our general dentist has the experience needed to produce exceptional results. We will ensure the restoration is placed in the optimal alignment and fits among your existing teeth well for a consistent look.
Implant Dentistry Sedation
Our staff wants to make your implant appointment as comfortable as possible. We will consult with you about our sedation options and make a selection based on your needs. We offer varied levels of sedation for your comfort, which include:
- Nitrous Oxide Sedation
- Oral Sedation
- IV Sedation
If we determine you require IV sedation, we will conduct your implant procedure at the office of our trusted oral surgeon partner. Their qualified staff will provide medical support while you are under sedation, and our dentist will place the implants.
What Are the Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth?
Dental implants offer numerous benefits, from improving your overall health to increasing the confidence you have in the appearance of your smile. Our focus in everything we do is on how to best care for you, and we'll never push any services we don't feel you need. Our services can help:
Improve your bite alignment: Missing teeth can cause uncomfortable issues with bite alignment, which can negatively affect your dentition. If left untreated, missing teeth can lead to issues like TMD, which is a disorder where the jaw joint itself is out of alignment. Seeking out our implant dentistry services is a great way to help protect your teeth from many alignment issues.
Prevent bone loss: When you are missing a tooth or several teeth, that area of the jaw loses the stimulation that keeps it healthy. Without treatment, the vacant portion of your jaw can lose significant bone density and volume. This not only severely affects your oral health but can lead to costly procedures in the future. Dental implants will help stimulate the jaw where teeth are missing, promoting the health of your jawbone.
Keeping gums healthy: The spaces where your teeth are missing can create pockets where food can become trapped. This can lead to complications like periodontal disease that can have drastic effects on your overall oral health. By filling the spaces where teeth used to be with implants, you'll be protecting the health of your gums and keeping your whole mouth healthy.
More confidence in your smile: Missing teeth can create unsightly gaps in your smile. Implants not only protect your dental health, but they also help you show off your smile. While getting an implant placed, we are happy to discuss cosmetic dentistry options that will make your whole smile shine.
