What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is one of the most popular solutions for tooth replacement. It provides a sustainable replacement for tooth roots and becomes your new, natural-looking permanent tooth.
Dental implants are made of body-safe titanium posts that fuse with the jawbone to give you a new tooth that looks, feels, and functions naturally. With implants, you can speak with clarity, chew your food efficiently, and flash your best smile.
Dental Implant Surgery - The Process
Before deciding to carry out dental implant surgery, our doctors will thoroughly examine your teeth to identify your needs. If you qualify for implants, our team will go over all the steps of the process with you. However, to set your expectations here is a brief explanation of a dental implant procedure:
- Implant Placement – Our periodontist will surgically place the implant into the jaw.
- Healing Period – After placing the implant, you are allowed a resting period for your gums to heal and the bonding process to start. During this process, natural tissue and bone start fusing with the implant posts, forming a strong base for your new tooth.
- Abutment Placement – This part is attached to the implant to connect the post to your new prosthetic.
- Prosthetic Placement - In the final step of this process, we will refer you back to your general dentist who will place your prosthetic. Depending on the number of implants you are receiving, your new restoration can be a crown, a bridge, or a fixed denture.
All-on-4® Dental Implant Treatment
The All-on-4 dental implant treatment presents a faster method to replace a full arch of your teeth. Instead of using an implant for every missing tooth, you will only need four implants to replace an entire arch. It works for both the top and bottom arch of your smile.
Pretreatments to Promote a Successful Implant Procedure
To ensure your implant treatment is sustainable, we provide you with the following pretreatments when necessary:
Periodontal Treatment - If gum disease is present, our periodontist will begin by treating your gums to ensure that your oral health is in excellent condition.
Bone Grafting - This surgery strengthens the jawbone before an implant placement. Bone grafting is necessary in cases where the jawbone lacks sufficient bone density to hold the implants. During this procedure, specialized organic or synthetic material is added to the jawbone, making it stronger.
Gum or Gingival Grafting- This procedure treats receding gums. It builds up your gum line using healthy tissue from the roof of the mouth.
Sinus lift - When missing teeth from the upper jaw are left unreplaced for a long time, the bone below the sinuses might become weak. This is treatable using a sinus lift surgery. This procedure adds bone below the sinuses to support them, which helps restore your facial structure and prevents further bone loss.
Is It Safe to Get Dental Implants?
Made of a biocompatible material, implants bond with your natural bone and tissue. They do not rely on the support of adjacent teeth or negatively affect your gums, making them exceptionally safe. For patients with pre-existing medical conditions, we recommend consulting with your primary doctor before implant surgery.
Are Dental Implants Generally Successful?
Yes, they are. 95% of dental implant placements are successful. Our talented team specializes in periodontics and implants, and above all, we have high integrity. We make sure to provide not only the highest quality implant placements but also exceptional follow-up throughout your healing period and until you place your restoration of choice.
Who Can Receive Dental Implants?
Anyone with one or more missing teeth can get a dental implant provided they have sufficient jawbone strength and healthy gums. Our doctors will do a comprehensive exam to make sure you qualify. We will give you honest recommendations and will only carry out the necessary procedures.
