What is a dental implant?
Dental implants consist of the actual implant, which is a titanium screw implanted into the jawbone and allowed to fuse directly with it, and a dental implant restoration (typically a crown) that is attached to the top of the implant once the healing process is completed. Because dental implants are placed into the jawbone, they replace the entire tooth from the top to the root, providing better stability and better health. Few people realize that when you lose a tooth root, the bone where the root used to be begins to deteriorate. Dental implants are great not only because they provide permanent tooth replacement, but also because they prevent this bone deterioration.
The Dental Implant Process
Once our team has determined that you’re the right candidate for dental implants, your procedure will begin with their surgical placement. This is performed by our associate oral surgeon Dr. Ghobadi right here in-office so patients remain in a comfortable and familiar environment. Once the implants have been successfully placed, patients will typically need to undergo a healing period; during this time, the implants fuse with the jawbone and create a sturdy foundation for your restorations. When this process has been successful, you’ll return to D&G Dental so we can design and place your custom restoration(s).
While crowns are the restoration of choice for patients who need teeth individually restored, implant-retained dentures and bridges can be helpful in cases of more extensive tooth loss. These prosthetics resemble the traditional models with one significant difference – they’re designed to attach to the placed implants within the mouth creating a sturdier and more lifelike fit overall for patients. Both fixed and removable options are available depending on your preference and unique needs.
