Smiles Are Restored with Dental Implants
Dental implants can make a difference in your mouth if you have lost or missing teeth. Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural teeth from looks to performance, so dental implants restore your confidence, chewing, and speech ability as if you never lost teeth. Whether you have lost teeth through an injury, decay, or disease, dental implants from Dublin Family Dental ensure no tooth loss should is permanent.
The Dental Implant Treatment
If you are getting a replacement designed to function like your natural teeth, it’s unrealistic to expect it to be a one-day job. The dental implant treatment takes several months, but most patients say the wait is well worth it because the outcome is a masterpiece.
The tooth implant procedure starts with a consultation with Dr. IIgnacio. During your appointment, she evaluates your mouth to ensure you don’t have gum disease. The other objective is to establish that you have a healthy jawbone to support an implant. If you are eligible for an implant, the rest of the steps involve:
- Implant surgery: Under anesthesia, we insert a tiny screw in your jawbone to replace your natural tooth root. Our dental team takes great care to ensure the implant is placed correctly, after which a healing cap is placed to kick start the healing process.
- Healing: We allow healing to take place over the next 4-6 months. During recovery, the jawbone grows around the implant post, securing it to support a crown or any other tooth prosthesis.
- Final restoration: Finally, the exciting bit about dental implant treatment. Once the bone has completed growing around the implant, we install a natural-looking crown, denture, or bridge to replace your tooth.
Once a dental implant is in place, it looks so natural that no one will tell it’s a replacement. Plus, your new tooth replacement yields numerous benefits, including stopping bone loss and restoring your full oral functionality.
Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
