Dental implants give you back your smile!
Dental implants have had a considerable impact on modern dentistry, offering a highly viable solution for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that is implanted into your jaw. A dental crown is then capped on top for a complete tooth that looks and even feels like a real tooth.
- A single tooth
- Multiple teeth (bridge)
- All of your teeth (implant dentures/overdentures)
DO DENTISTRY is a top provider of dental implants.
Candidates for Dental Implants
Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, however, a large majority of patients are. In order for an implant to be placed into the jawbone, there must be a sufficient amount of room and bone integrity to hold the implant.
Dental implants have success rates of up to 98 percent, thanks to evolving techniques. They offer superior stability over other traditional options.
Dental implants take time to integrate into your jawbone, which can make the entire process lengthy. A titanium post must be implanted into the jawbone. What follows is a process called osseointegration, which helps the titanium to fuse with the surrounding bone. This process results in a strong bond that is similar to what a real tooth offers. Several months may be required for this step. Next, we place an abutment connector onto the titanium implant where a dental crown can be placed. The dental crown will be made specifically to blend in with your teeth for a complete realistic tooth that looks so close to a real tooth that friends, family, and strangers will not even be able to tell the difference.
Guided Implant Placement Surgeries
Using state of the art 3D Imaging and 3D Printing, surgeries can be precisely planned in advance and a surgical guide can be created to make implant placements more accurate and drastically reduce the time it takes for the actual surgical procedure. The surgical guide ensures that the implant will be placed in the intended predetermined location, whereas free-hand placements without using 3D imaging will have a higher degree of variance.
