What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are small rods made of titanium that resemble a screw. They are surgically inserted into your jaw. Once the implants are inserted, they immediately begin to merge with the bone in your jaw and act as the roots of your teeth, which ensure that you don’t fall prey to bone and gum tissue loss. Then they are attached to replacement “teeth.”
Is The Procedure Painful?
No. Even if you are especially sensitive, we will do everything possible to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. That includes employing sedation dentistry techniques to guarantee that your visit is smooth and easy. If you are in need of IV sedation, the deepest level of sedation dentistry, a specialist will be brought in to administer the correct dosage and keep you comfortable.
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
Indeed! Our implants are designed to feel like your natural teeth. The artificial tooth, or crown, is custom-made to fit your mouth. It will be the right size, shape, and color to blend in with the rest of your teeth. You will hardly know the difference.
How Long Can Dental Implants Last?
The good news is that dental implants are designed to last the rest of your lifetime. That said, they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth.
Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will keep you smiling for years to come.
What Kind Of Implant Treatments Are Offered?
We offer a number of options around here, including…
Single Implant Placement: One tooth, one implant. You lose a tooth, and a single dental implant will be placed to fill the gap. A replacement tooth, or crown, will be attached thereafter.
All-on-4: This is a special deal. By placing four dental implants in your jaw with two in the back angled, a whole row of replacement teeth can be supported. This means less surgery and less healing time, and you still enjoy the benefits of unmatched stability and bone-loss prevention that come with dental implants.
All-on-6: This procedure is just like the All-on-4, but instead of four implants, six are used.
Implant-Retained Dentures: Providing you with the stability of dental implants and the full arch of teeth that dentures provide, implant-retained dentures are a great way to go.
Implant-Supported Bridges: These will give you the look of a natural smile, the stability of dental implants, and the ability to fill the gap left by a few lost teeth or entire arch. They will help strengthen your jawbone as the force from chewing is distributed to your bone, not your gums.
Are Implants The Right Solution For Me?
You must be in good health and your jaw bone must also be thick and tall enough to support the implant. When you are here for your consultation, we will evaluate your mouth and jaw and determine the best way to restore the missing teeth. One way or another, we’ll get you back on track in terms of health and appearance.
