What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are dental restorations that recreate your entire missing tooth from root to crown. Their unique design provides additional benefits to your overall health, and our practice offers crowns, bridges, and partial dentures.
Dental implants consist of an implant post, an abutment, and a custom restoration. The implant post is made of a body-safe metal such as titanium and is surgically placed in your jaw with the abutment at the top of the post. After this procedure, you will take time to heal and allow the implant post to fuse with your jawbone, a process called osseointegration.
Once the bonding process is complete, resulting in a stable and permanent base, your crown, bridge, or partial denture is set, and you will leave our office ready to eat and speak with ease. Our team is involved in every aspect of your care, working with specialists when needed to promote your health and successful treatment.
Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a restoration that replaces a single missing tooth. An implant-supported crown can replace any tooth in your upper or lower arch. We create a crown that is carefully matched to the size, shape, and color of your tooth to blend beautifully with your smile.
Dental Bridges: When you're missing multiple teeth in a row, you miss out on many foods you love, and may struggle with smiling or enunciating clearly. Our team provides implant-supported bridges to restore the surface area of your bite, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and communicate clearly. These dental bridges can be configured to replace any group of missing teeth, from molars to incisors.
Partial Dentures: If you have lost most of your teeth but have a few healthy teeth remaining, our beautiful partial dentures may be the answer you're looking for. Partial dentures can be configured to fit comfortably around your remaining teeth and artfully matched in color and shape to recreate your natural smile. We believe that each smile is unique, and we customize your dental prosthetic to give you a smile that you can't wait to share.
Dental Implant FAQs
We value transparency, honesty, and education, which is why we encourage you to ask questions and share your concerns. Our friendly team is happy to provide the information and answers you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive regarding dental implants.
No. While you may experience some discomfort during the surgery to place the implant post, implant-supported crowns, bridges, and partial dentures are designed to fit comfortably with your remaining teeth. If your dental restoration is uncomfortable for more than two days, contact our office, and we will schedule an appointment to address the fit of your dental implant.
Dental implants are easy to care for because you simply brush and floss your implant-supported restoration twice daily, just like your natural teeth. It is important that you also maintain your biannual dental appointments so our gentle dentist can verify the strength and integrity of your restoration. It's also vital that you do not use your implant to bite on hard surfaces like bottles or cans.
The implant post is permanent since it fuses to your jawbone. The artificial tooth or teeth can last 10-15 years when properly cared for.
For many, dental implants allow them to enjoy their favorite foods again because it restores their ability to chew. However, there are a few specific foods to avoid, such as hard candies, nuts, and sticky foods like caramel and toffee.
