»What is Dental Implant Surgery?

Implants are surgically placed into the jaw for a more permanent solution to tooth loss. They are a longer-term option than, say, a bridge.

»Should I get Dental Implants?

You might be a great candidate for a dental implant if you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth; if you can?t wear dentures and if you don?t want to worry about your teeth coming out.

»How Long Do Implants Take?

The length of time it takes for a dental implant to be placed depends upon a number of factors including physiological ones. It is possible that your implant will have to be placed in more than one visit.

»What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Implants often outstrip the benefits of dentures in that you don?t have to take them out to clean them, they look more like real teeth, they feel like your regular teeth, and you don?t have to worry about them coming out.

»Are Dental Implants Safe?

Yes. Before undergoing the implant surgery you?ll have to go through an evaluation to make sure you?re a good candidate, but if approved the materials and tools used in the procedure are safe.

»How Should I Start?

Schedule an appointment for an evaluation and we will help you get on your way to great oral health.

»What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are metal posts that are positioned in the jaw beneath your gums. They allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth.

»How Do Dental Implants Work?

The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

»How Long Do Dental Implants Take?

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.

»What Are Some Types of Dental Implants?

  • Endosteal implants

    These are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. Once the surrounding gum tissue has healed, a second surgery is needed to connect a post to the original implant. Finally, an artificial tooth (or teeth) is attached to the post individually or grouped on a bridge or denture.

  • Subperiosteal implants

    These consist of a metal frame that is fitted onto the jawbone just below the gum tissue. As the gums heal, the frame becomes fixed to the jawbone. Posts, which are attached to the frame, protrude through the gums. As with endosteal implants, artificial teeth are then mounted to the posts.

»What Are Some Types of Dental Implant Treatments?

  • Bone augmentation

    This can involve restoring bone in your jaw so that it can support dental implants.

  • Sinus lift

    This can involve adding bone under the sinus in order to fight deterioration and support missing upper back teeth.

  • Ridge expansion

    If your jaw isn?t wide enough support dental implants, bone grafts can be added to add space along the top of your jaw.
