Dental Implants

 

Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solutions to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that the teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

 

 

The entire implant process is preformed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jawbone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured. The implant must be allowed approximately 3 to 6 months to heal, and during this time the jawbone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have a temporary crown installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.


After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. Once this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. The impression is then sent a lab to create the crown. Once restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look and feel just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant, it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
