Dental Implants

Composite fillings are usually placed in one appointment. While the tooth is numb, your dentist will remove decay as needed and then carefully prepare it for a new filling before placing that composite material into place to restore its original shape or function once again!

Dental implants are one of the most reliable methods to replace missing teeth. The artificial roots and titanium prosthesis (usually) placed by a dentist or periodontist enhances your smile with natural looking smiles.

Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years. On certain occasions, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw to determine how much space is available for an implant. While the area will be numb, a dentist surgically places it into bone-- healing in time before placing your new tooth! You'll need one more surgery depending on what type you choose: either post insertion if there's already one attached at home or another procedure where both posts come out together with other types that require them individually).

The artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of an anchor. After several weeks, they're securely attached to your implant for excellent stability and comfort.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene and eating habits, alongside regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
