Dental Implants

The Dental Implant Process

Dental Implants are small titanium anchors that are permanently placed into the jaw bone and through time, the dental implant integrates with your bone and acts very much like a natural tooth root. Dental Implants can hold a crown, bridge, over-denture or hybrid prosthesis. This technology has significantly evolved through the years to provide patients with a healthy, comfortable and beautiful smile. The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease. This procedure is a team effort between you, your dentist and your periodontist. Your periodontist and dentist will consult with you to determine where and how your implant should be placed. Your dentist and periodontist will work together to make your dreams come true. Do not hesitate to speak to your dentist or periodontist about this excellent option to replace you missing single tooth or several teeth.

The Implant-Retained Prosthesis

Several types of replacement options can be achieved with the use of dental implants. For those missing one single tooth, a single implant can be placed and restored with a single crown on the implant. When there is a space of one tooth or several missing teeth, two or more implants may be place to replace the gap with a bridge. If you are missing multiple or all of the teeth, implants may be placed to restore with a complete or partial dentures over the implants; this treatment option is called Overdentures which are removable type of dentures. If you are missing all of the teeth and are looking for a fixed route, placing several implants can help hold a fixed prosthesis called a hybrid.
