What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for artificial teeth. These posts act as replacement tooth roots and are topped with custom-made crowns that closely resemble your natural teeth. Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution for missing teeth, allowing you to regain confidence in your smile and enjoy improved oral health.
How Do Dental
Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Dental Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Bishop will custom-create natural-looking restorations. These will match the rest of your teeth, function just like the originals, and be impossible for anyone to detect! Get the smile you deserve – permanently!
The Benefits of Dental Implants
1. Enhanced Aesthetics
Dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth. With their realistic appearance, they seamlessly blend in with your existing teeth, giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
2. Improved Functionality
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants are fixed in place, providing stability and strength when chewing and speaking. This allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about discomfort or slippage.
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as bridges or dentures, dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth, saving you time and money on future replacements.
4. Preservation of Jawbone Health
When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to deteriorate over time. Dental implants not only replace missing teeth but also stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.
The Dental Implant Process
At Dental Dimensions, Dr. Bishop and his skilled team follow a comprehensive approach to ensure successful dental implant placement. Here is an overview of the dental implant process:
1. Initial Consultation
During your first visit, Dr. Bishop will thoroughly examine your oral health, assess your jawbone density, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. X-rays and 3D imaging may be used to create a precise treatment plan customized to your needs.
2. Implant Placement
If you are deemed a candidate for dental implants, the next step is the surgical placement of the titanium posts into your jawbone. This minor surgical procedure is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the process.
3. Healing Phase
After the implant placement, a period of healing is necessary to allow the implants to fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This typically takes a few months, during which temporary restorations may be provided to maintain aesthetics and function.
4. Custom Restoration
Once the implants have fully integrated, impressions of your mouth are taken to create custom-made crowns that will be attached to the implants. These crowns are carefully crafted to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth, resulting in a seamless smile.
5. Care and Maintenance
After the completion of the dental implant process, it is important to maintain good oral hygiene habits and visit Dental Dimensions regularly for check-ups and cleanings. With proper care, your dental implants will continue to provide you with a confident smile for years to come.
Overdentures – No More Messy Denture Adhesives!
People who wear dentures will tell you that the worst part is having their teeth slip, tilt, or slide while they’re eating. They have to use denture adhesive to try to keep their teeth from moving around. This is a major irritant for them. But now, we offer our denture patients an alternative – overdentures. With the use of just a few dental implants to support the dentures, your teeth will be “locked” into place so they won’t move. Yet they easily snap off for cleaning. Say goodbye to messy creams! Ask us if you are a candidate for overdentures!
