Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants can work for nearly any mouth, although additional procedures may be required beforehand for patients with poor oral health or an inadequate amount of jawbone density. The first step of the implant treatment process will be their surgical placement into the gums – there, they’ll work as new “roots” stimulating and bonding with natural tissue in order to create a steady foundation for replacement teeth. In most cases, this process will take several months.
Dental Implant Restoration
Once the patient has fully recovered from their implant placement, they return to our office so we can design and place the restoration that best fits their needs and personal preferences. Multiple options are available including:
- Dental Crowns – All-ceramic dental crowns are used to restore single tooth implants while preserving surrounding healthy teeth.
- Fixed Dental Bridges/Dentures – Implant-retained prosthetics are ideal for patients who need a more extensive area of lost teeth replaced in a quality, cost-effective way. They closely resemble the traditional bridge and/or denture, but they’re designed to attach securely over a number of implants placed within the jawbone resulting in a permanent fit that feels stable and can’t be removed from the mouth.
- Overdentures – Overdentures are similar to implant-retained prosthetics, but they’re designed to be removable. This allows patients to clean and store them in a fashion similar to traditional dentures while still being able to enjoy the improved function and health that comes with dental implants.
