What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
There are several reasons why dental implants are a great way to replace a missing tooth. These include:
Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
Restore a patient’s smile, enhancing their confidence and ability to chew.
Restore or enhance facial tissues.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
- Maintain healthy bone levels and prevent further bone loss in the area of the missing tooth.
Regardless of the reason why you might be missing a tooth, a dental implant could be a permanent solution to address your issue and restore your smile.
What Are the Steps Involved in Placing a Dental Implant?
To place a dental implant, there are several things we like to consider. Furthermore, there are many visits over several months that are required. Here are a few things that must be considered:
Evaluation of your medical history, smile, and the area of the missing tooth/teeth. This allows us to determine if you and your oral cavity are healthy enough to accept and support a dental implant.
Is there enough room for a dental implant, or do we need to create space with orthodontics?
A CBCT 3D x-ray and digital scan will be taken to evaluate the density and height of bone in the area and surrounding teeth.
Once we decide that you are a candidate for a dental implant, the implant is surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate into the bone for up to six months.
Once we have confirmed that the implant has integrated well with your bone, we will place a post/abutment on top of the implant to hold the implant crown, bridge, or denture.
- We will also customize the porcelain implant crown, bridge, or denture to match the surrounding teeth for a beautiful natural-looking smile.
We will discuss all of these steps in detail with you before placing the implant. There may be additional steps and time involved in the implant process which is patient dependent. Dr. Quintana and Dr. DeMarco are happy to answer any of your questions, and tailor your treatment specific to your needs.
