What are Dental Implants
Millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss as a result of tooth decay, dental injury and gingivitis. Dental implants have revolutionized the way dental professionals treat those problems. Dental implants form a steady foundation placed inside your jaw that hold a replacement tooth in place to refill the lost tooth.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants are superior to dental crowns and dentures. Dentures slip around and fall out, and crowns don’t always look natural. More importantly, dental implants stay in place, feel natural, and allow you to comfortably eat and smile with confidence. Dental implants are permanent, allow for improved speech and are easy to keep clean. They have nearly a 100% success rate.
The Dental Implants Procedure
- Evaluate your candidacy — Before we follow through with dental implants, we’ll first evaluate your gum health to see if you are a good candidate. While dental implants are top-of-the-line, they’re not for everyone. In your evaluation, we’ll take x-rays of your jaw to examine the health of your gums. If healthy enough, we’ll determine that you’re a good candidate and we’ll proceed.
- Prepare your mouth for surgery — Before we place the implants in your mouth, we’ll be sure to extract any parts of the tooth that are still in your jaw to free up space the implant.
- Provide proper placement — After we prep your mouth for surgery, we’ll place an implant inside your jaw. We place you under with anesthesia so you don’t feel a thing and drill a hole inside the gum where we place the implant. After this procedure, we’ll stitch up the hole and allow approximately six months for healing.
- Place your new tooth or teeth — Finally, we open up the gum to thread a new tooth in place.
