Enjoy Permanent Tooth Restoration with Durable, Natural-looking Implants

Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry and changed lives by providing a permanent solution to tooth loss. A dental implant replaces your missing teeth using a titanium screw surgically inserted in the jawbone. This implant fixture fuses with the jawbone, which is why dental implants remain secure when eating, talking, or smiling. 

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.

How a dental implant restores your smile

Dentures and bridges replace your missing teeth by only replacing the visible portion of the tooth (the crown). A dental implant not only replaces the crown but its root, too. Because of the dental implant’s unique structure, this restoration looks and feels like natural teeth. 

As you’d expect, restoring your smile with an implant isn’t an overnight job. The treatment takes 4-6 months, but it’s worth the wait because you get something that will last for life with proper care.

These are the steps involved in restoring your smile with an implant.

  • Consultation: An initial consultation to examine your oral health to ensure you are eligible for implants. We use digital x-rays and 3D scanners to aid in planning your treatment.
  • Pre-surgery procedures: Where necessary, you may need supplementary procedures like bone grafting to replenish lost bone tissue. You may also need a tooth extraction to remove a failing tooth.
  • Implant surgery: The dentist surgically places a titanium screw at a precise location in the jawbone. This outpatient procedure is done after administering local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. 
  • Healing: The implant will be left for 4-6 months to fuse with the jawbone through osseointegration. 
  • Abutment placement: The dentist will attach a metal piece to the implant post to connect it to a prosthetic tooth.
  • Tooth restoration: This is usually the most exciting part of the treatment, where we cover the implant post with a natural-looking crown.

Once the implant treatment is complete, your teeth will function and look like natural teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, expect no embarrassing slippage or clicking sounds with implants. Best of all, your implant can last for life when well maintained.
