Dental Implants Explained

Dental implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacements that mimic the natural structure and appearance of your teeth. The implant itself is comprised of three parts: a titanium post, an abutment, and a customized crown.

The titanium post fuses with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for the abutment and crown. The abutment is then attached to connect the supporting post to a crown built to match your smile. With a remarkable ability to resemble natural teeth, implants offer a permanent solution for those looking to restore their smile.

Our experienced pediatric team will carefully assess your child’s dental condition and discuss the necessity of extraction when it aligns with the best interests of their long-term oral health.

What Makes Dental Implants Special?

With modern technology and amazing results, dental implants have only become more popular with patients. They offer several outstanding advantages that make them a preferred choice for tooth replacement:

  • Natural appearance: Implants look and feel like your natural teeth, seamlessly blending with your smile.
  • Durability: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, providing a long-term solution for missing teeth.
  • Preservation of bone health: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.
  • Functional bite: Implants restore the ability to bite and chew comfortably, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods.
  • Better oral health: Unlike dental bridges, implants don’t rely on support from surrounding teeth, so you can preserve your natural tooth structure around the replacement tooth.

Best Candidates for Dental Implants

Tooth implants are a lifesaver for many patients looking for an incredibly natural prosthodontic option to improve the appearance, health, and function of their smile. The most important factor during your consultation is the strength of your jawbone. The bone must be dense enough to support the titanium rod for a lasting implant. We’ll perform in-depth digital X-rays to assess jawbone health and ensure dental implants are right for you.

Our Dental Implant Procedure

Our comprehensive dental implant procedure ensures a successful and comfortable experience. During an initial consultation, we assess your oral health and discuss your goals to determine if dental implants are the right solution for you. A personalized treatment plan is then created, considering factors such as the number of implants needed and the condition of your jawbone.

Once we begin, the titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation for the artificial teeth. Next is a healing period to allow the jawbone to fuse with the implant. Once fully healed, the abutment and customized crown are attached to the implant, completing your new tooth.
