Say goodbye to gaps in your smile and hello to a confident, complete set of teeth! If you're missing one or more teeth, dental implants can be the ultimate solution for restoring both the aesthetic beauty and functionality of your mouth. With dental implants, you can regain your confidence and enjoy all the benefits of a natural-looking, fully functional smile.
The procedure for getting dental implants is a relatively straightforward process that can have life-changing results. It typically involves several steps, starting with an initial consultation and assessment by a qualified dentist or oral surgeon. During this consultation, the dentist will evaluate your overall oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. They will also take X-rays or CT scans to assess the density of your jawbone and determine the optimal placement for the implant.
If you're deemed eligible for dental implants, the next step is to undergo the actual implantation surgery. This involves surgically placing a titanium post into your jawbone, which serves as an artificial tooth root. The gum tissue is then stitched back over the implant site to allow for proper healing. After a period of healing - usually several months - during which time osseointegration occurs (the fusion of bone with the implant), you'll return to have an abutment attached to the implant. This acts as a connector between the implant and the final restoration.
Once everything has healed properly, our dentist will attach a custom-made crown or bridge onto each individual implant, completing your new smile. It's important to note that while every case is unique, most patients experience minimal discomfort throughout each stage of the dental implant process. Our dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to care for your implants after surgery and ensure they last for many years to come.
Dental implants offer a multitude of benefits that make them the best solution for missing teeth.
