Expertise In Placing And Restoring Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are designed to function like natural teeth. A titanium post acts like a tooth root and is surgically placed into the jaw bone where it helps keep it healthy and strong.

The custom dental crown is made from high-quality materials that can withstand normal chewing force and look like natural teeth. From root to crown, dental implants mimic the function and aesthetics of teeth and provide nearly the same benefits.

How We Fix Implant Failures

The first step your dentist takes is creating an accurate diagnosis of why the implant failed. He’ll examine all the parts of the implant, including the restoration, the abutment, thread devices, the abutment material, and determine if they need replacement.

Luckily, failing implants can be treated quickly, but keep in mind that if your dentist needs to protect your oral health, he’ll remove the implant entirely in order to do so. Not seeking repairs for a failing implant can also put nearby teeth at risk, so it’s essential that patients seek treatment if they believe their implant is failing. Don’t let implant failure get in the way of retaining a fully functional smile. If you fear that your implant is failing, schedule an appointment with your implant dentist today!


What To Expect

Dental implants are permanent tooth replacement solutions that include both an artificial tooth root and an implant restoration. They consist of titanium posts that serve as artificial roots and a prosthetic tooth affixed on top. Since they are surgically placed into the jaw, implants are highly stable and can handle chewing pressure just like natural teeth.

Not only do dental implants restore your oral function, but they also promote bone health by stimulating your jawbone and can improve the aesthetics of your smile. If you are considering dental implants, read on to find out what to expect before, during, and after treatment.

Requirements For Getting A Dental Implant

You must have healthy gums, as well as sufficient jawbone density, to be eligible for dental implants. If your jawbone is too thin or weak, it will not provide adequate support for your implant posts. To ensure the proper placement and lasting durability of your implants, your dentist may recommend a bone graft or a sinus lift to reinforce the jawbone structure.
