What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent solution for restoring missing or damaged teeth and will artificially replace your tooth from root to crown. We begin the process by surgically implanting a body-safe titanium post into your jawbone using computer-guided technology for optimal efficiency and accuracy. Next, we attach the abutment to the foundational post, and your tooth replacements, which will be customized and crafted in a lab, will be positioned for comfort and a natural appearance.
Dental Implant Pretreatment Options
Before the surgery begins, we will run a thorough exam to determine you're a good candidate for the procedure. Our team will assess your entire oral structure in detail using CBCT scanners and intraoral cameras to render digital images. If we discover that pretreatments must be taken before a successful surgery, we can perform them for you in our office. These procedures will help prepare you for implant surgery and promote lasting results. The pretreatments include:
- Extractions: If your tooth is beyond repair, we can carefully remove it to create room for our dental restoration. We will perform precise and careful tooth extractions, providing IV sedation services where needed for added comfort.
- Bone Grafting: Our implant posts are designed to bond to your jawbone and become a permanent part of your smile. For this process to be successful and retain durability for the long term, your jawbone must be healthy and strong. If your jawbone is too thin or weak, our dentists can provide bone grafting procedures. Bone grafting involves transplanting a small amount of bone to your upper or lower jaw, helping to increase the volume so the implant post has a sturdy foundation.
- Sinus Lifts: Our skilled dental team can provide sinus lift surgery if needed. This procedure moves or lifts the sinus membrane upward to help make room in the upper jaw for the placement of bone, leading to a stronger foundation the dental implant can fuse to.
Dental Implant FAQs
Our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible regarding the procedure, materials we use, and aftercare tips. We believe you deserve to never be left in the dark about any step of the process. Some frequently asked questions we receive about dental implants include:
We provide custom-made crowns crafted in a lab to restore a single tooth. If you need three teeth replaced in a row, we can position a convenient dental bridge, which uses two implant posts to place three restorations, one being suspended in the middle. Our dentists can also offer the popular All on 4® implant treatment, which restores an entire arch of teeth using only four implant posts.
Yes. We use advanced technology and modern techniques to ensure your dental implant and surrounding gum tissue are consistent and natural-looking within your smile. Every tooth restoration is custom-made in a lab based on diagnostics we take using digital scanning technology.
The implant posts become a permanent part of your smile, and with regular care and routine checkups, your tooth restorations should last ten years or longer. They will eventually need replacing due to damage or normal wear, but replacing the restorations is a fairly easy process, and you won't need further surgery.
