When you’re looking for ways to improve your smile, dental implants are a great option. They can restore a smile permanently. During a smile makeover consultation, our team can learn about your goals and determine if dental implants are a viable treatment option for you or not. Our goal is to help our patients to achieve the smile of their dreams by creating a custom treatment plan that works best for their oral health.
How are dental implants placed in a patient?
Dental implants are a way for us to give our patients healthy and natural-looking teeth. They are screw-like posts that are placed in the jaw to bond with the natural bone. When it heals completely, it becomes a strong base for support artificial teeth or crowns. Those missing one or more teeth and who have a strong jawbone that can withstand the healing process are the best candidates for this procedure. Dental implants are safe and durable. With proper oral hygiene and regular dental exams and routine dental cleanings, they can last a long time.
The Dental Implant Process
First, the damaged tooth or teeth are removed. Next, the jawbone is prepped for the surgical procedure. The implant itself is placed within the jawbone to serve as the root of the new artificial tooth. A healing period is necessary for it to become a strong base. During this time, impressions are taken of the teeth so that the crown or crowns can be custom made for fitting the patient’s teeth.
