What’s Involved in Dental Implant Dentistry?

Implant dentistry offers a remarkable solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both the function and aesthetics of your smile. Dental implants are advanced prosthetic teeth designed to replace the root and crown of a missing tooth, providing a natural-looking and long-lasting result. Consisting of two main components, the implant post and the implant restoration, this comprehensive treatment delivers exceptional outcomes.

The implant post, surgically inserted into the jawbone, acts as a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth. It stimulates the surrounding bone tissue, promoting its health and preventing bone loss. Meanwhile, the implant restoration, which can be a single crown, a dental bridge or a denture, completes the structure and mimics the appearance of natural teeth flawlessly.

Your Dental Implants Journey

To begin your implant journey, you will first have an implant placement surgery to place the post into your jawbone. This will be followed by a healing period that allows the post to fuse with the jawbone. Afterward, our experienced dentist will collaborate with you to create a custom restoration that suits your specific needs, ensuring a comfortable fit and seamless integration with your existing teeth.

Maintaining your dental implants is vital to their longevity and functionality. Just like natural teeth, implants require regular brushing, flossing and routine visits to the dentist for preventive care. By adhering to these practices, you can ensure that your implants remain stable and provide a lifetime of confident smiles.

The beauty of implant dentistry lies in its inclusivity. Virtually anyone with missing teeth can benefit from this revolutionary treatment. As long as your oral health is in good condition, you are likely a suitable candidate. However, if you have existing dental issues like tooth decay or gum disease, it’s essential to receive appropriate treatment before undergoing implant placement.
