What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a great way to completely and permanently replace missing teeth. By including biocompatible prosthetic tooth root(s), the visible portion of restoration has a solid foundation. This effective anchor provides a strong and secure bite that functions like your natural teeth and lasts longer than traditional solutions.
What does getting Dental Implants Involve?
During your initial assessment, Dr. White measures your jawbone mass along with gum health and consults with our team. If your jaw needs strengthening, he offers a bone grafting to prepare it for implantation.
The biocompatible titanium posts are strategically placed into the jaw bone by Dr. White, and the healing process takes several weeks. Once the implants have integrated with your jawbone, they can support a number of prosthetics, including:
- Porcelain Crowns – for individual tooth replacement
- Dental Bridges – to support a row of teeth without altering healthy adjacent teethHybrid (Permanent)
- Dentures – can permanently replace a full arch of missing teeth
- Overdentures – are retained by dental implants but are removable
While you wait for the bone to fuse with the implant post you are typically provided a transitional restoration. In the case of full arch replacement, we can often provide temporary dentures the same day that implants are placed.
For your comfort, White Periodontics & Implant Dentistry offers a choice of sedation options.
What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth, offering stability that’s unmatched by any other dental replacement procedure. If you currently wear dentures and are tired of the embarrassing slippage that can occur while you eat or speak, dental implant placement can restore both natural function and aesthetics to your smile.
One of the most important benefits of dental implantation is the bone stimulation provided. Preservation of the jawbone reduces or prevents the look of premature aging often associated with dentures.
