  • What is the procedure for dental implants?

    Dental implants are a multi-step process that can vary for each patient depending on their oral health. Typically the process involves the following steps:

    1. Consultation and dental exam: This is the first step, where we examine your oral health to determine if dental implants are suitable for you. We will explore all available treatment options.
    2. Tooth extraction: If required, we will extract your tooth/teeth to prepare for the implant(s). We will also perform a dental bone graft if bone loss occurs around the implant site.
    3. Implant placement: The implant is placed in the bone, and a healing cap is placed over it to start the healing process.
    4. Implant healing: During the healing phase, a process called osseointegration occurs, where the jawbone heals around the implant and fuses with it. This provides a stable foundation for the new artificial tooth. Typically, this process takes 4 to 6 months to complete.
    5. Abutment/crown placement: The abutment is a small, titanium piece used to connect your artificial tooth (crown) to the implant. The abutment is attached to the implant, and the crown is placed on it.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Dental implants are an excellent solution for those who have lost teeth due to injury, decay, or other reasons. There are two primary types of dental implants: endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants.

    Endosteal implants are the most common type and are suitable for patients with a healthy jawbone. They are placed directly into the jaw and provide a strong foundation and support for your jaw. On the other hand, subperiosteal implants are placed under the gums and on or above the jawbone and are an excellent option for people who don’t have a healthy jawbone.

    The choice between these types of dental implants depends on several factors, including your bone density, overall oral health, specific needs, and personal preferences. We’ll help you choose the right type of implant for your specific needs—give us a call today!

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Tooth loss can cause difficulties with chewing and speaking clearly. If tooth loss is not addressed, it can lead to a variety of problems such as other teeth shifting, deterioration of the jawbone, facial structure changes, and bite imbalances. These issues typically develop over time when there is no root system to maintain bone health and alignment.

    Dental implants are an effective solution to both short-term and long-term problems associated with tooth loss. Because implants function as an artificial root system, they are the most effective method for treating tooth loss. With dental implants, you can get back to enjoying your favorite foods and smiling with confidence.
